Donald Trump has written a check for $25,000 to Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi, who was recently freed from a Mexican prison after 214 days in jail.
“I really want this money to go to him, not his lawyers," he said.
Trump said that he felt badly after watching Van Susteren’s interview with the Marine. He said that Tahmooressi has suffered greatly and that he hopes this money will help him get back on with his life.
Earlier, he tweeted:
It is my great honor to send $25,000 to Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi. #marinefreed

Van Susteren and Trump also discussed President Barack Obama’s trip to China, which Trump blasted as “disgraceful.”
He also weighed in on the midterm elections, saying that people are “tired of Obama, they’re tired of incompetence.”
