Trump celebrates 3 Americans freed from North Korea in victorious return to the US
President Donald Trump welcomed the arrival of the three Korean-Americans held captive in North Korea at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland early Thursday morning, following weeks of speculation about their release. "We would like to express our deep appreciation to the United States government, President Trump, Secretary Pompeo, and the people of the United States for bringing us home," the three said in a statement released by the State Department. "We thank God, and all our families and friends who prayed for us and for our return. God Bless America, the greatest nation in the world," the statement continued.
