American patriots still remember sorties of aircraft delivering pallets of American currency ($1.7 billion-worth) to Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei in exchange for the so-called Iranian “deal” that President Trump just cancelled. As a result, skeptics, including this writer, are asking: “What did the president give up to secure the release of Utahn Josh Holt and his wife and daughter over the weekend?”
It’s highly unlikely that Marxist thug Nicolas Maduro is all of a sudden Trump’s best friend, especially as the American president is ramping up additional sanctions against his failing and collapsing regime. Just a few days before the Holts’ release, Maduro ordered the American ambassador out of his country in retaliation for the American government’s assertion that his election on May 20 was a farce.
Why the sudden change of heart? It’s all speculation, of course, but the backstory of the Holts’ release is worth telling.
