Early Thursday morning 3 American Prisoners freed from North Korea’s detention center and arrived at Andrew’s Air Force Base in Maryland to be greeted by President Trump, first lady Melania Trump and Vice President Mike Pence.

President Trump, and Melania Trump stepped aboard the plane carrying former hostages Kim Dong Chul, Kim Hak Song and Tony Kim to greet them for a few minutes, then stepped out with the 3 Korean Americans and addressed the media “We want to thank Kim Jong Un” and “I really think he wants to do something.” As for the relationship between the US and North Korea, Trump believes  “We’re starting off on a new footing.”

The Freed Prisoners were extremely grateful as they walked off the plane and were joined by a translator who said “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,” and that “it’s like a dream”

Their return provides a good stepping stone for the landmark nuclear summit meeting between America and North Korea, however Trump believes the biggest problem is gonna be to convince North Korea to dismantle it’s nuclear weapons
