On Thursday, Fox News' Greta Van Susteren revealed the identity of the GOP candidate who helped Sergeant Andrew Tahmooressi after he was finally freed from a Mexican prison.

The candidate, Donald Trump, acknowledged Sustersen's activism at a town hall earlier this week.

He said:

"We don't have a good relationship with Mexico. Remember Sergeant Tahmooressi, they kept him in jail, we couldn't get him out. We had a president that wanted to make a phone call. He was in that jail, rotting in that jail and I helped him with Greta and some people, and I helped him financially.

And finally he got out. But he was in there so long. By the way without her, he'd probably still be there."

As it turns out, Trump sent Tahmooressi a big check to help get him back on his feet.

He tweeted in November of 2014:

One thing Trump has said while on the campaign trail is that our “veterans are treated like third-class citizens.”

Hats off to Mr. Trump for helping a veteran who was truly in need.
