Scott Campaign Press Release - Tim Scott: Because of Biden, Every Single American Abroad Has A Higher Price Tag On Their Head
MASON CITY, IOWA – Today, Tim Scott spoke with Simon Conway on WHO Radio about his visit to Iowa and Biden's negotiations with Iran.
Simon Conway: Today we got five Americans back. No one is going to be unhappy that these Americans are home. That's a good thing. The bad thing, however, is we paid for them. And I believe that the Biden Administration has now put a price on the back of every American abroad right now. And certainly, if I was in Iran right now and had that passport, I'd be getting out of Dodge.
Tim Scott: Well, speaking of Dodge, and speaking of your comments, I just said exactly the same thing at Fort Dodge at the Pizza Ranch. I said under President Obama, he paid over 400 million dollars in hostage negotiations. This president, six billion dollars. What does that mean? It means that every single American abroad has a higher price tag on their head, and they are now more likely to be taken than ever before because of the dereliction of duty that we're seeing in broad daylight. President Biden failed us miserably. We all celebrate, Simon, the Americans coming home. The price we pay is now more Americans, thousands of Americans abroad are now in greater jeopardy because this President just doesn't get it.
