Will the Trump-Pence religious freedom platform save a 5-year old Christian trapped in Kuwait?

Long before their election in 2016, both President Trump and Vice President Pence had developed a strong track record fighting for persecuted Christians and other religious groups. And no administration in history has been more focused on protecting religious freedom in the United States and abroad.
Last month, Trump became the first U.S. president to host a meeting at the United Nations on religious freedom. During his remarks, Trump said that advocacy for religious freedom remains one of the “highest priorities” of his administration.
This global focus on the issue could prove very good news for a 5-year-old Pennsylvania boy named Yvan. Yvan is currently trapped in Kuwait with his mother, Marsha Lazareva — an Orthodox Christian who was falsely convicted by a Kuwaiti court this week and sentenced to 15 years of hard labor.
