Three Americans released by North Korea landed in the US in the early hours of Thursday, with Donald Trump waiting on the tarmac to greet their plane.
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 honour will be if we have a victory in getting rid of nuclear weapons.”
Also, the released American citizens had a thing or two to say to POTUS!
We would like to express our deep appreciation to the United States government, President [Donald] Trump, Secretary Pompeo, and the people of the United States for bringing us home,” a statement from the three Americans read. “We thank God, and all our families and friends who prayed for us and for our return.”
“God bless America, the greatest nation in the world,” the statement concluded.

This week, US secretary of state Mike Pompeo flew to Pyongyang for a surprise one-day visit , when he met the North Korean leader and secured the release of the three men.
“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 three were then taken to a nearby military hospital for health checks.
Do you think that President Trump and Mike Pompeo did a great job?
