Trump Greeets Freed American Prisoners After North Korea Release

Another sign of the big thaw made possible by the application of Peace Through Strength. Works every time it's tried!

Smiles and hugs at Andrews Air Force Base near Washington, DC in the early hours of Thursday morning as three Americans held prisoner in North Korea arrived back in the United States to be greeted by President Trump and First Lady Melania along with Vice President Pence and his wife Karen.

Unlike Obama's ill fated Iran deal, $150 billion in cash wasn't required to seal the release of the three Americans, all of Korean ancestry.

At Joint Base Andrews Trump welcomed home the three Americans:
THE PRESIDENT: This is a great honor. Hopefully everything is going to work out at the highest level. We want to thank Kim Jong-un, who really was excellent to these three incredible people. They are really three incredible people. And the fact that we were able to get them out so soon was really a tribute to a lot of things, including a certain process that’s taking place right now. And that process is very important.
This release stands in marked contrast to that of Otto Warmbier, an American student taken prisoner in North Korea. He was tortured. His teeth were pulled out and put back in the wrong sockets among other horrors inflicted on the 22 year old.  He was released by the North Koreans in June 2017 in a comatose state and died soon after. His parents had been told by the Obama Administration not to raise the issue of their son's detention.  It took an intervention by President Trump to obtain Otto's release.

A different homecoming for Otto Warmbier who died shortly after his release from North Korea.  Obama Administration officials ignored his plight.
Otto was on the mind of President Trump as he greeted the plane with freed prisoners. At Joint Base Andrews Trump added:
TRUMP: And I must tell you, I want to pay my warmest respects to the parents of Otto Warmbier, who was a great young man who really suffered. And his parents have become friends of ours. They are spectacular people. And I just want to pay my respects. I actually called them the other day, and Mike called them, also — Mike Pence. And they are really incredible people.
No more leading from behind or strategic patience and it's already paying results!

Trump announces Summit Date/Place
Movement and progress on all fronts. When will the Trump haters who said he would start a nuclear war admit they were wrong?
