John Barrasso: President Trump Is ‘Restoring American Power Around the World’
HEMMER: "16 past the hour now. President Trump announcing only about 40 minutes ago North Korea has released three U.S. detainees and Mike Pompeo, Secretary of State now flying back home with the newly freed Americans. The president tweeting, 'Secretary Pompeo and his 'guests' will be landing at Andrews Air Force Base at 2:00 A.M. in the morning. I will be there to greet them. Very exciting!' That tweet from about 30 minutes ago. Wyoming Republican Senator John Barrasso on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. And sir, thank you for your time."
BARRASSO: "Thanks, Bill."
HEMMER: "That's breaking news, let’s go ahead and react to it in realtime. I mean, this is something that I don’t think a lot of people would have even imagined one year ago. Your reaction first, senator."
BARRASSO: "Well, clearly it’s very good news. President Trump is reasserting American leadership, restoring American power around the world. When the president of the United States, President Trump speaks, people listen, they hear what he says. Pulling out of the Iran deal I think was the right thing and that sent a strong message to North Korea, if they want to deal with the United States, it is not going to be a lopsided deal."
