Pete Hegseth Defends Trump's Child Camps: 'Kids Were Not Placed In Ovens And Baked'

"Fox & Friends" host Pete Hegseth on Sunday exploded at liberals who compare Donald Trump's child immigrant camps to "concentration camps."

Fox & Friends host Pete Hegseth on Sunday exploded at liberals who compare Donald Trump's child immigrant camps to "concentration camps."

"Hold on," Hegseth said. "You mean, the kids were not placed in ovens and baked? They were reunited with their families."

Fox co-host Ed Henry tried to interrupt but Hegseth continued.

"No, seriously. Rhetoric actually matters," Hegseth opined. "You call it a concentration camp? Call it what it is. You reunite these kids peacefully with their parents -- who broke the law, by the way, by going across the border -- and suddenly you're an evil person."

"How much will that story get covered when they are reunited?" Henry wondered.

"Exactly," Hegseth agreed. "Now that it's all fixed."
