‘I Got It Wrong,’ U.S. Ambassador Says About Muslim ‘No-Go Zones’ In The Netherlands

U.S. Ambassador to the Netherlands Pete Hoekstra spoke at a tense news conference with Dutch reporters Wednesday at The Hague. On Friday, he said earlier anti-Muslim comments were "wrong."

After initially expressing “regrets and my apology,” he told a Dutch newspaper that comments he made in 2015 about Muslims burning politicians in the Netherlands were “just wrong.”
