In addition to Obama paying for the release of prisoners, he also exchanged 5 terrorists from Guantanamo Bay in exchange for American traitor Beau Bergdahl.
“[North Korean leader] Kim Jong Un did a great service to himself and to his country by doing this. But those hostages came out, with respect, we didn’t pay for them,” Trump said during a rally in Elkhart, Ind.
“What he did was the right thing, but they came out for nothing and the others came out for $1.8 billion in cash,” Trump added.
Trump appeared to be referring to a January 2016 deal in which the Obama administration agreed to pay Iran $1.7 billion to settle a case related to the sale of military equipment before the Iranian revolution.
The payment coincided with the release of five imprisoned American citizens who were released in exchange for seven Iranians detained in the U.S.
