Hoekstra initially tried to deny ever making such statements.
Dutch TV news programme Nieuwsuur asked Dutch-American politician Pete Hoekstra about his previous words on the radical Islam threat to Europe, just 10 days after he was sworn in as United States ambassador to the Netherlands.
In the video, Hoekstra clearly argues Muslims have brought "chaos" to the Netherlands, and that bureaucrats and vehicles are being set ablaze, and says: "Yes, there are no-go zones in the Netherlands".
Hoekstra again replied: "No, it's not what I said". Hoekstra's response to being shown the clip is truly impressive: He denies using the term "fake news" just moments earlier.
The programme then cut to an archive clip from 2015 which showed Hoekstra saying: "The Islamic movement has now got to a point where they have put Europe into chaos".
In a profile of the new ambassador, released this week, Dutch TV journalist Wouter Zwart asked about questionable statements made by Hoekstra during a debate in 2015.
"That is actually an incorrect statement", Hoekstra insists, "yeah - we would call it fake news", he adds, literally shrugging it off.
"Talking about danger, at one point you specified in an open deliberation that there are no-go zones in the Netherlands and that autos and lawmakers are being determined to flame", a correspondent for Nieuwsuur said to Hoekstra. Spin explains that "no-go zones" refers to the notion that there are areas in the Netherlands where Sharia law has replaced government control. Yeah, we would call it fake news.
"I don't think I did", Hoekstra says, causing his interviewer to slightly chuckle. He called it "fake news". "I didn't utilize the word today, I don't figure I did".
He served in MI from 1993 to 2011, and is also a former chair of the House Intelligence Committee.
