As if you need any more proof that Trump is a real leader and Obama a real schnook, look no further than released hostages.
Barack Obama got 5 hostages returned to the United States and one of them was a traitor to this country and it cost us 1.7 billion dollars and 5 of the most dangerous terrorists in Gitmo. President Trump has rescued 17 hostages and it didn’t cost us a dime. Dime a dozen dictators understood that you could mug Obama by a registered letter but they have no idea what President Trump might do, but they do know what he has done in Syria. They have decided the best course of action is to not piss him off. Leadership shows.
Utah Senator Orrin Hatch, who has worked to secure Holt’s release for two years, responded to the president’s Saturday announcement with a statement of his own.
I’m pleased to announce that after two years of hard work, we’ve secured the release of Josh and Thamy Holt, who are now on their way home to the United States from Venezuela.
Over the last two years I’ve worked with two Presidential administrations, countless diplomatic contacts, ambassadors from all over the world, a network of contacts in Venezuela, and President Maduro himself, and I could not be more honored to be able to reunite Josh with his sweet, long-suffering family in Riverton.
“Good news about the release of the American hostage from Venezuela. Should be landing in D.C. this evening and be in the White House, with his family, at about 7:00 P.M. The great people of Utah will be very happy!”
