Obama Ignored US Citizen Held by Taliban… Look What Trump Did in Just Months

President Donald Trump has made it clear during his time in office that he has no tolerance for anyone who supports terrorism, and that he isn’t afraid to demand other nations do more to stomp out terror.

On Thursday morning, Trump’s tough talk strategy generated huge returns. The White House announced that an American family held captive by the Taliban since 2012 had been rescued, Fox News reported.

Caitlan Coleman, 32, her husband Josh Boyle (who was a Canadian citizen) and their three children were rescued by Pakistani security forces in a mission that was conducted based off intelligence provided by the United States.

“Today they are free. This is a positive moment for our country’s relationship with Pakistan,” read a statement released by President Trump. “The Pakistani government’s cooperation is a sign that it is honoring America’s wishes for it to do more to provide security in the region.”

Trump has called out Pakistan for their support of terrorism in the past, and this rescue is evidence that they are heeding his warnings. President Barack Obama couldn’t get Pakistan to change in his entire eight years. Trump made it happen in just 10 months.

On Wednesday, Trump seemed to hint at this occurrence during his rally in Pennsylvania.

“Something happened today, where a country that totally disrespected us called with some very, very important news,” Trump told the crowd. “And one of my generals came in. They said, ‘You know, I have to tell you, a year ago they would’ve never done that.’ It was a great sign of respect.”

CNN noted that U.S. intelligence had been tracking the hostages for several days, and passed the information along to Pakistani authorities when the hostages crossed into Pakistani territory.

NBC News noted that the hostages had been held in Afghanistan for quite some time, and were being held by the Haqqani network, which the United States considers to be a part of the Taliban.

This is a huge testament to Trump’s leadership and influence around the world. Despite liberals claims that Trump would be incompetent and make a fool of himself regarding international affairs, just the opposite has been true.

Plus, Trump didn’t pay millions of dollars to terrorists for their release — he just put pressure on Pakistan officials to do their job and start fighting terrorism.

This is a great day for the United States, and an even better day for the hostages and their families.
