Ryan compared Trump’s ability to secure the release of American aid worker Aya Hijazi to that of Reagan securing the release of Americans held hostage in Iran.
April Ryan, the White House Correspondent for the National Urban Radio Networks, compared President Trump’s ability to secure the release of American aid worker Aya Hijazi to that of President Reagan securing the release of Americans held hostage in Iran.
“This is the winning picture for this president,” Ryan said. “This is a major accomplishment for him, particularly when another president could not do it.”
“I think back to Ronald Reagan, when Jimmy Carter couldn’t get the Iranian hostages home,” Ryan added. “President Reagan got them home.”
Inside Ryan’s analogy was the implication that President Obama’s diplomatic clout was ineffective like Carter’s efforts.
“New Day” host Alisyn Camerota praised the administration for conducting “real diplomacy” in order to get Hijazi home.
