Pete Hoekstra, the man selected by President Donald Trump to be America’s envoy to the Netherlands, was destitute blatantly fibbing about his past statements by a Dutch publisher this week.
During an talk with Dutch reporter Wouter Zwart, Hoekstra was asked about past statements he’d done in 2015 about Muslims in the Netherlands environment fire to politicians and formulating “no-go zones” within cities where Dutch police are too fearful to enter.
Hoekstra primarily tried to repudiate ever making such statements.
“I didn’t contend that, that is actually an improper statement,” Hoesktra insisted. “We would call it feign news. we never pronounced that.”
Zwart then proceeded to play a video clip of Hoekstra observant in 2015 that, “In the Netherlands, there are cars being burned, there are politicians that are being burned… and yes, there are no-go zones in the Netherlands.”
“You called it ‘fake news,’” the contributor forked out.
“I didn’t call that feign news,” Hoekstra defensively replied. “I didn’t use those difference today… we don’t consider we did.”
Watch the video below.
