President Donald J. Trump welcomed home three newly-freed Americans that were being held hostage in North Korea Thursday. It’s a great Day for America! Are you tired of winning yet?
Kim Dong-chul, Tony Kim and Kim Hak-song were all greeted by President Trump and first lady Melania Trump at Andrews Air Force Base early Thursday morning.
The detainees were released ahead of the highly anticipated meeting between President Trump and the North Korean Dictator Kim Jong Un, which is set for June.
If this isn’t the the art of the deal, I don’t know what is.
President Trump brought home three American hostages and released zero terrorists in exchange. Compare that to when former President Barack Obama traded five Gitmo terrorists for deserter Bowe Bergdahl.
Trump also didn’t have to hand over hundreds of millions of dollars in exchange for hostages,
which is what the Obama administration did with Iran.
Obama said the money was owed to the Iranians for a decade-old weapons payment settlement but as soon as that plane load of cash was delivered to Iran, the American hostages were released. America doesn’t pay for hostages — this move set a dangerous precedent.
So you would think the mainstream media would give president Trump a little credit for his strong leadership on this issue. But no, they’re too busy talking about porn stars and peddling the Russian collusion narrative.
President Trump has done more than Obama did in eight years, and he’s just getting started. The return of Americans from North Korea will be added to his list of accomplishments.
Credit should be given where it’s due.
