Coming Home: North Korea Keeps It's Word and Returns Remains of U.S. Military

An undeniable sign that relations are improving!

North Korea's Chairman Kim is fulfilling his pledge to President Trump made at the Singapore Summit to return the remains of Americans who died fighting in North Korea. On the 65th anniversary of the signing of the Armistice that ended the fighting in the Korean Peninsula 55 sets of remains arrived in South Korea aboard a U.S. cargo plane that briefly touched down in North Korea for the handover.

President Trump praised the handover in a tweet and issued a proclamation declaring "July 27, 2018, as National Korean War Veterans Armistice Day."

This is the first step in what is expected to be the return of the remains of potentially thousands of U.S. personnel. The return highlights the promise President Trump made during a speech to the Veterans of Foreign Wars in Kansas City, Missouri on Tuesday where he reiterated that "we believe in no American left behind."

Once again, Trump delivers on his promise!
