Earlier this week the news broke that President Donald Trump had managed to secure the release of three American prisoners in North Korea and that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was on his way back with them at the time he published the announcement.
This historic feat was part of the demands Trump made for meeting with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, along with agreeing to denuclearize the Korean peninsula.
Just finding out these three folks would be coming back home where they belonged was fantastic news, but actually getting to see video footage of the president greeting them pushes this whole thing into pure awesomeness.
The prisoners arrived at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland sometime early Wednesday morning. Vice President Pence was the first to arrive, with the president and first lady showing up several minutes later followed by National Security Adviser John Bolton and Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
Secretary of State Pompeo’s plane arrived first, followed by the plane carrying the freed citizens several minutes later. The president and first lady boarded the plane and spoke with them before walking out of the plane together to greet the press.

“This is a special night for these three really great people,” Trump told reporters. “Frankly we didn’t think this was going to happen … it’s a very important thing to all of us to be able to get these three great people out.”
Trump thanked North Korean leader Kim Jong-un for releasing the hostages, adding, “I really think he wants to do something and bring his country into the real world.”
“I think this will be a very big success,” Trump continued. “It’s never been taken this far, there’s never been a relationship like this. Some great things can happen, and that’s what we hope.”
The president is constantly criticized by the media for just about everything he says or does, but these same folk just simply refuse to give him credit when he accomplishes something amazing, like all the stuff he’s done with North Korea.
These three men are now free, back home, in the loving arms of their families, all because of the effort that this president and his administration put into actually getting things done instead of a bunch of nonsense political posturing.
And this is just the tip of the iceberg. Trump’s meeting with North Korean leadership to discuss denuclearization is a historic accomplishment that should earn the man a Nobel Peace Prize.
Let’s hope the media can actually swallow their pride and give Trump props for getting these folks home.
