Ted Cruz: Trump Getting Results on North Korea

Thursday, 10 May 2018 12:04 PM

President Donald Trump has achieved a "major victory" in getting North Korea to release three American prisoners, Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz said Thursday.

"We saw for eight years under [former President] Barack Obama a foreign policy that was really a policy of weakness and appeasement," Cruz said on Fox News’ "Fox & Friends" Thursday, after Kim Dong Chul, Kim Hak Song and Tony Kim landed at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland.

"The problem is weakness and appeasement doesn't work, especially with dictators like [North Korean leader] Kim Jong Un," he added.

"President Trump has come in with a strong American foreign policy, getting back to peace through strength. And I think we're seeing the results of it with three Americans coming home."

Cruz also praised Trump for another reversal of an Obama-era policy: withdrawing from the nuclear deal with Iran.

"I think the president did exactly the right thing to pull out of the Iran deal," the senator said. "For the last year and a half, I've been talking to the president, urging him to take this course, and I think the president has steadily been on this path."

He added that "We're going to see some posturing in European capitals, and the reason is because there are some big European companies that want to do business with Iran, and that's got a lot of the European countries defending this deal."
