Trump Says Lack of Americans in Hamas’s Hostage Release Shows ‘No Respect’ for US Under Biden



Former President Donald Trump said Saturday that a lack of U.S. citizens among the hostages freed by the Hamas terrorist group shows “no respect” for America under President Joe Biden.

Israeli forces have confirmed that 17 hostages—13 Israelis and 4 Thai abductees—were released by Hamas on Saturday as part of a second batch of liberated captives, with no Americans among them. Hamas on Friday released 24 hostages, including 13 Israelis, 10 people from Thailand, and one from the Philippines.

Hamas released two U.S. citizens on Oct. 20, but no Americans have been freed since. According to U.S. intelligence, there are around 10 Americans among the hostages still held by the Hamas terror group, which took captives when it raided Israeli settlements on Oct. 7 and brutally killed over 1,000 people.

“Has anybody noticed that Hamas has returned people from other Countries but, so far, has not returned one American Hostage? There is only one reason for that, NO RESPECT FOR OUR COUNTRY OR OUR LEADERSHIP. This is a very sad and dark period of America!” President Trump wrote in a post on Truth Social on Saturday before the second group of hostages were released.

Meanwhile, President Biden said Friday while vacationing in Nantucket, Massachusetts, that he expects American hostages will be released.

“We don’t know when that will occur, but we’re going to expect it to occur,” President Biden said.

“We don’t know what the list of all the hostages are and when they will be released, but we know the numbers that are going to be released, So it’s my hope and expectation it will be soon,” he added.

Earlier on Saturday, Israeli forces confirmed that 17 hostages—including 8 children—were released by Hamas as part of a second group of freed abductees, after an earlier delay by the terror group sparked concerns that the hostages-for-prisoners swap deal might fall apart.
