Rubio: Obama Showed the World There’s a Price for Americans with Hostage Deal

‘Iran very deliberately seized them [sailors] because they know that under Barack Obama you can trade Americans for people you want back’

VAN SUSTEREN: "Good evening, sir."

RUBIO: "Good evening, Greta."
VAN SUSTEREN: "Senator, you are a critic of this swap. Are you not?"
RUBIO: "Well, I'm happy that they are coming home. I'm certainly pleased by that and I share your sentiments about Bob Levinson and his family as [indecipherable] Florida. We will not forget him and we will continue to bring that up. It's unacceptable that Iran has not been cooperative in that regard. I'm happy they are coming home. My problem is this number one they should have never been hostages in the first place none of them did anything wrong. Number two, I think that Iran very deliberately seized them because they know under Barack Obama you can trade Americans for people you want back. And so here you have five innocent people who were traded for seven guilty people who are condemned in the courts of law in the freest judicial system in the world ... Now you out a price on the head of every American abroad in terms of being kidnapped or captured by unfriendly governments."
