Three US Citizens Released By North Korea Have Arrived Back In The US
“Congratulations on being in this country,” President Donald Trump said as he greeted the men upon their return to the US.
Three Americans detained in North Korea have arrived back in the US after being released by Kim Jong Un’s regime.
The plane carrying the three men touched down at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland shortly after 2 a.m. ET Thursday.
Kim Sang-duk (also known as Tony Kim), Kim Hak-song and Kim Dong-chul were greeted by President Donald Trump and his wife Melania, who boarded the landed plane for a short private meeting, before accompanying them back on to American soil. “Congratulations on being in this country,” Trump said.
Trump described the return of the three men to the US as a “special night for these really great people.”
He also thanked North Korean leader Kim. They will meet soon for an unprecedented summit that Trump yesterday said a time and a place had been agreed upon for. “I want to thank Kim Jong Un,” Trump said. “I think he wants to do something and bring that country into the real world.”
