CNN host Chris Cuomo said the release of three American hostages from North Korea is a “high point” in President Donald Trump’s tenure in the White House.

“We begin with breaking news of a good kind,” Cuomo said on “New Day” Thursday. “President Trump welcoming home three Americans. Look at this. A hero’s welcome for the men freed by North Korea — after more than a year in captivity. The president and the first lady emerging from the plane that came in the middle of the night with the former prisoners. It was just before dawn.”

“Their release marks a high point in Mr. Trump’s turbulent presidency,” he added.


Cuomo’s comments came less than two weeks after he said Trump might be nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts in North and South Korea.

Trump welcomed Kim Dong Chul, Kim Hak Song and Kim Sang Duk (Tony Kim) into the U.S. after they arrived at Joint Base Andrews outside Washington just before 3 a.m. Thursday. The president boarded the plane to congratulate the men and came out, holding their hands up in triumph.
