Yoho: Trump’s Strategy ‘Is Building that International Respect Again’

Friday on Fox News Channel’s “Outnumbered Overtime With Harris Faulkner,” Rep. Ted Yoho (R-FL) described President Donald Trump’s strength in foreign policy as building “international respect again.”

Yoho said, “Well, I think everything that’s been laid out and the strategy that President Trump has laid out with Mike Pompeo couldn’t be more perfect. And then you put Moon Jae-in, the president of South Korea, doing an icebreaker by inviting North Korea to South Korea for the Olympics, all of these working together along with the sanctions have set a stage for where we’re at today.”

He continued, “We have come from the era of strategic patience by the last administration where we negotiated with terrorist groups for Bowe Bergdahl. We gave money away to a nongovernment entity to get back an American soldier. It’s always great to get back an American soldier, but that is counterproductive and goes against a long-standing tradition of the United States. We do not negotiate with terrorists. The Iran deal, same thing. We got nothing out of that.”

He added, “The negotiations and opening up trade with Cuba, the same thing, Cuba got everything they wanted. We got nothing. So President Trump is very strong, very adamant and it is building that international respect again.”
