Tim Scott: If You Take An American Hostage, It Should Cost You Your Life
“The challenge that we see today is that when you give $6 billion to people who fund terrorism, you cannot be surprised when they go and do what they always have done.” – Tim Scott
DES MOINES, IA – Tonight, Tim Scott joined Sean Hannity on Fox News to discuss Tim’s new Senate bill that would immediately refreeze the $6 billion that Joe Biden and his administration gave to Iran. Tim and Sean also discussed the barbaric terrorist attacks from Hamas on innocent people and the importance of making sure that Iran is never a nuclear power.
Yesterday, Tim delivered a speech on Israel at the Hudson Institute, where he made “scathing critiques” of Biden, the Squad, and dangerous Republican foreign policy.
Sean Hannity: The fact that you, Marsha Blackburn and others have to have to put forward a bill. Why hasn’t Joe Biden already said you’re not getting the 6 billion? Why are they so reluctant and resistant to the idea that that was a bad deal and a bad idea? That giving the number one state sponsor terror this money, why do we, why do we have to force that upon them? That should be, to me, a no-brainer.
Tim Scott: You know that you cannot make a good deal with a bad actor, period. One of the things I’ve been saying since Saturday is that Joe Biden is complicit with these attacks. Why? Because when you are weak, you invite attacks. When you negotiate and give $6 billion to Iran, who is 90% of the funding for Hamas comes from Iran. Those breadcrumbs are simple. It is impossible for the common person to come to any other conclusion. But in Washington, DC Joe Biden and his administration – they are uncommon and not in a good way. The challenge that we see today is that when you give $6 billion to people who fund terrorism, you cannot be surprised when they go and do what they always have done. But I gotta say this, Sean, when $6 billion is paid for hostages, you have actually created a high-value market for Americans to be taken as hostages. And we pray that they come home and we should do everything in our power to bring them home. But this administration has blood on their hands because they are complicit. We need to freeze those assets and send a message to the world that we stand shoulder-to-shoulder with Israel. And there is no daylight. But if you take an American hostage, it should cost you your life.
