Pompeo Returning with American Hostages

Great news!

President Donald Trump said Wednesday that three American prisoners released from North Korea were headed home, a sign of potential good will ahead of Trump’s planned meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

In a tweet, Trump said “the 3 wonderful gentlemen that everyone is looking so forward to meeting” were accompanying Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on his way back from a visit to North Korea.

    See what happens when you stop coddling evil! (Looking at you Obama)

    Good news for all three gentlemen who were arrested by North Korea last year.

    Too bad 8 years of Obama coddling the evil emboldened North Korea to do that.

    Did you read the article?  Looks like 2 of the 3 were taken prisoner during the trump administration.   Now how do you blame Obama for that?

    I think it’s great that 3 Americans have been released. During the previous administration I believe 11 detained American citizens were released, which I also think was great.

    But previous administration did nothing to prevent the issue.

    Trump took a different approach, the not coddling evil approach, and it has yielded much better results.

    Proof?  North Korea carried on its hostage taking of Americans.

    Sometimes you seem to make Forrest Gump look smart.
