President Trump Slams Biden’s $6 Billion Iran Deal.
Biden’s Iran Deal Decision
- President Joe Biden approved a deal with Iran, releasing $6 billion for five individuals, while Iran reciprocated with zero payments for the same number.
“This absolutely ridiculous 6 Billion Dollar Hostage Deal with Iran has set a terrible PRECEDENT for the future,” Trump posted on Truth Social, adding, “Buckel up, you are going to see some terrible things start to happen.
“I brought 58 HOSTAGES home from many different countries, including North Korea, and I never paid anything,” Trump added in another Truth Social post. “They all understood they MUST LET THESE PEOPLE COME HOME! Toward the end, it got so that countries didn’t even start the conversation asking for money, because they knew they would not get it.”
- Former President Donald Trump expressed dismay over the agreement on Truth Social, cautioning of potential adverse outcomes. Trump accentuated that during his presidency, he never had to pay ransoms to secure hostages. He highlighted that his approach made countries refrain from demanding money.
- The result of the recent transaction may prompt future entities to expect high ransoms from the U.S., potentially escalating hostage situations, according to Trump.
US’s Global Perception
- Trump critiqued the current U.S. reputation, suggesting the country has become an international joke. He urged voters to consider reinstating his policies.
Details of the Deal
- Five American citizens, previously held in Iran, arrived in Doha, Qatar. This release occurred concurrently with a prisoner swap for five Iranians detained in the U.S. and the release of $6 billion in Iranian funds previously restricted by U.S. sanctions.
