How to use hostage-taking in a sentence?

  1. Pascal Lamy:

    My reaction is it seems that hostage-taking works. That's my reaction, if there's a rule of law, it's because people believe it's better than the law of the jungle. And many people don't like the law of the jungle because some are strong, some are weak, and they don't want the strong to always step on the weak.

  2. Chris Christie:

    This President and his former secretary of state are for paying ransom for hostages, when you do that, you endanger even more Americans around the world to be the subject of this type of hostage taking and illegal detention.

  3. Adam Schiff:

    I think you end up funding other hostage taking and the cycle just perpetuates itself, so I think our decision is the right one, rather, try to rescue our hostages than pay ransoms, and, of course, prospectively trying to keep our people out of harm's way. I think that is really the right policy, as painful as it is, and as enormously agonizing as it is for the families of these hostages.

  4. Pascal Lamy:

    The U.S. president is taking trade decisions that are in total violation of the WTO rules, that was the case with these Mexican tariffs. The notion that you put a tariff because there are too many people crossing the border is just miles away from any letter and spirit of the WTO agreement. Which is why I qualify this as hostage-taking.
