Dem Rep. Ted Lieu: Trump ‘Deserves Credit’ for Release of Hostages from North Korea

‘Yes, I believe the Trump Administration deserves credit for bringing in these hostages back from North Korea’

EXCERPT:

BERMAN: "Congressman, thanks so much for being with us. Your reaction to those pictures overnight of those detainees landing at Joint Base Andrews and whether or not you think this administration deserves credit for bringing them home."
LIEU: "Thank you, John, and Poppy, for that question. Yes, I believe the Trump administration deserves credit for bringing these hostages back from North Korea. But also I want to note that two of these hostages were taken under the Trump administration, one was under the Obama Administration and North Korea had no reason for taking these Americans. They had done nothing wrong. So North Korea should absolutely get no credit."
