Biden says ‘things are looking good’ on Hamas releasing hostages

President Biden on Tuesday said efforts to bring home hostages being held by Hamas are looking good, amid reporting that a tentative deal has been made to release hostages.


“We are now very close, very close. We could bring some of these hostages home very soon, but I don’t want to get into the details of things because nothing is done until it’s done. And, if we have more to say, we will. But things are looking good at the moment,” Biden said during a meeting at the White House.
