President Trump tweeted this morning that the three American hostages held in North Korea are on their way home. The White House statement says the President views the release of three American citizens “as a positive gesture of goodwill.”

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders says the three Americans “appear to be in good condition” and says they were “able to walk on the plane without assistance.”

Sanders says, “All Americans look forward to welcoming them home and to seeing them reunited with their loved ones.”

All three are Korean-American men who were held in North Korea until Wednesday, when they were released during a visit by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to Pyongyang, the North Korean capital.

The President also tweeted below “Secretary Pompeo and his “guest” (hostages) will be landing at Andrews Air Force Base at 2:00 AM in the morning. I will be there to greet them. Very exciting!

Needless to say this is a major foreign policy victory for President Trump even as his critics find it impossible to report on victories at home and abroad. While in North Korea Pompeo met with North Korean Communist dictator Kim Jong un to discuss their coming summit. President Trump has indicated that a date and time have been decided upon. The location will be revealed in “a handful of days.”. Speculation on the location of the summit are either Singapore or more than likely the DMZ.
