This is huge. In advance of Trump’s meeting with Kim Jong Un, North Korea is reportedly going to release three United States prisoners. This is a huge win for America and President Trump.
The Business Insider reports:
North Korea reportedly hands Trump another big win by releasing US prisoners
North Korea has released three US citizens detained there, the Financial Times reported Wednesday, citing a South Korean activist who campaigns for the release of detainees.
The releases would meet some of the US’s demands for North Korea to demonstrate sincerity before a historic meeting between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un — something that John Bolton, Trump’s hawkish national security adviser, reiterated during an interview on Fox News on Sunday.
The three citizens— Kim Dong-chul, Kim Sang-duk, and Kim Hak-song — have been released from a labor camp and given health treatment and ideological education in Pyongyang, the Financial Times report said.
“We heard it through our sources in North Korea late last month,” Choi Sung-ryong told the news outlet. “We believe that Mr. Trump can take them back on the day of the US-North Korea summit or he can send an envoy to take them back to the US before the summit.”
If Trump succeeds in disarming North Korea on top of this, he really will deserve the Nobel Peace Prize.
