The family was being held by the Haqqani network, a terror organization active along the Afghanistan-Pakistan border.

Trump praised the cooperation from the Pakistani government, saying "I believe they're starting to respect the United States again."

"It's very important. Right now I think a lot of countries are starting to respect the United States of America once again," he said before moving onto signing an executive order on health care.
