Here’s Why Pastor Saeed Abedini Is Backing Trump


Just days before the election Iranian-American Pastor Saeed Abedini is publicly supporting Donald Trump, citing the billionaire’s $10,000 gift to his family while he was in prison.

Abedini spent more than three years in jail in Iran, before he was released in a deal between the Obama administration and the Iranian government.

“I am finally free in a free country. Last year, on the same day I was sick and in chains for Christ, and now I can vote to choose my next president. And most amazingly, I can vote for someone that I know fought for me and called my name so many times. He met my family and gave them a $10,000 gift. I think his ideas are more biblical than the other candidates,” Abedini wrote.

He also accused Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton of failing to help him at all.

“As a woman who says she stands for women’s rights when she was foreign minister, she never contacted my mom, wife, sister or my daughter,” Abedini charged. “She never did anything to help when I was in prison as an American pastor who was detained in Iran as a hostage.”

Abedini has already cast his vote for Trump in the 2016 presidential election and acknowledged that despite the nominee’s controversial past, God still uses flawed men to lead nations.
