Pompeo: We’ll Continue to Work to Bring Home Americans Detained Abroad
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Sunday that the Trump administration will continue to work to bring Americans detained abroad back home.
CBS “Face the Nation” host Margaret Brennan asked Pompeo about Americans detained in Iran and if the Trump administration announcing it would leave the Iran nuclear deal, also known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) would jeopardize the release of those American prisoners.
“First, everyone should know that this administration is intent on bringing home every American who is held anywhere in the world,” Pompeo said as he mentioned some of the other Americans who are held around the world.
Pompeo recently visited North Korea for the second time and secured the release of three American prisoners. During his visit, Pompeo finalized the details for the upcoming summit between Trump and Kim. Trump announced that his meeting with Kim will take place in Singapore on June 12, saying they would try to make it a “very special moment for world peace.”

This is fantastic. Why doesn’t anyone in the media ever wonder why the Obama administration didn’t do this?
