President Trump Got Tough With North Korea — Now 3 US Prisoners Are Coming Home

President Donald Trump has implemented a dramatically different diplomatic approach in his dealings with North Korea. He’s used a “get tough” policy to push for change under the brutal regime.

And it’s working.

Three American prisoners being held in North Korea were released and are on their way back home following a surprise diplomatic mission by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Trump said Wednesday.

“I am pleased to inform you that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is in the air and on his way back from North Korea with the 3 wonderful gentlemen that everyone is looking so forward to meeting. They seem to be in good health. Also, good meeting with Kim Jong Un. Date & Place set,” Trump tweeted.

This monumental development comes on the heels of historic peace talks between North and South Korea, ending a war that has been going since 1950. The two nations have also agreed to denuclearize the peninsula later this year.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in said recently that President Trump deserves the Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts to bring peace between the two nations.

“President Trump should win the Nobel Peace Prize. What we need is only peace,” Moon reportedly said.


The bottom line is, former President Barack Obama’s soft-handed approach with North Korea produced practically zero results during the eight years of his presidency. Trump has been in office for two years and massive change has already unfolded.
