BIDEN EFFECT: Haitian Kidnappers Demand $17 Million Ransom to Release American Missionaries

Criminals, hackers and dangerous cartels know the US’s wallet is wide open thanks to Joe Biden’s weakness in paying ransoms over the last year.

17 American Christian missionaries, including children, were kidnapped by a gang in Haiti last weekend.

According to reports, the Ohio-based Christian group was on their way home after building an orphanage when they were kidnapped by the gang.

“The welfare and safety of U.S. citizens abroad is one of the highest priorities of the Department of State,” the spokesperson said.

The 400 Mawozo gang is demanding $17 million in ransom, according to the Wall Street Journal.

“We are trying to get them released without paying any ransom,” Justice Minister Liszt Quitel said. “This is the first course of action. Let’s be honest: When we give them that money, that money is going to be used for more guns and more munitions.”

Biden has been briefed on the situation and the FBI is reportedly in contact with the kidnappers trying to negotiate a safe release.
