Winning; Trump welcomes home Freed American hostages North Korean negotiations off to a good start

freed American hostages

President Trump and Melania welcomed home the three freed American hostages. The event was a made for tv drama in the middle of the night with a huge American flag displayed prominently.

The three men emerged from a US government plane, flashing peace signs high above their heads. A huge US flag hung between two fire trucks served as a backdrop against the night sky.

“I want to thank Kim Jong un Trump said. “I think he wants to do something and bring that country into the real world.”

“We didn’t think this was going to happen, and it did. It was very important to all of us,” he said, referring to the prisoner release. “The true honor will be if we have a victory in getting rid of nuclear weapons.”

 

Their condition was much better than that of US student Otto Warmbier last June.

Warmbier, 22, came back with severe brain damage, after being sentenced to hard labour for taking a propaganda poster while on a short tourism trip to the secretive dictatorship, and died just days afterwards. His parents are suing North Korea.

“It’s like a dream and we are very happy,” Kim Dong-chul, one of the freed men, said. “We were treated in many different ways, I had to do labour.”

The release of Tony Kim, Kim Hak-song and Kim Dong-chul was secured less than an hour before Pompeo was due to depart. A photo of him shaking hands with Kim Jong-un was printed on the front page of the Rodong Sinmun , the official newspaper of the ruling Workers’ party.

The freed American hostages are just the first step in ongoing negotiations with North Korea. President Trump is set for a meeting with Kim Jong Un now reported to be held in Singapore on June 12th.
