    I wonder if we will see this on CNN and other mainstream media?

    Well done, Mr. President!

    Well this is very good news indeed... hope N. Korea releases all their hostages. G. W. Bush tried and so did others, tried to get all released & disarm them, but Trump is the only one successful. Now if only Trump would expand ObamaCare, Social Security & Food stamps plus more funding for Rental Subsidy it would be great.

    It looks like North Korea has already started dismantling its nuclear testing site.


    U.S. intelligence says the North Koreans have started pulling cables from the tunnels at their nuclear test site -- a first step toward closing them down, CBS News' national security correspondent David Martin reports. North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has vowed to shut down the country's nuclear test site in May, Seoul's presidential office said on Sunday.

    There is talk of giving President Trump the Noble Peace Prize.

    I have not seen this on the news. That's not too surprising, since it makes President Trump look good. Imagine the good he could do if the press would just treat him fairly.

    North Korea in peace after many years and dismantling its nuclear giving back its prisoners.
    Not a peep out of main street media. They give Stormy's lawyer over 50 times on CNN and not one thing about North Korea. Then they get upset when you call them fake news.

    I think it's brilliant news if it goes ahead..but according to Fox News it's not a definite... but if so..then another thumbs up for President Trump

    A senior Trump administration official told Fox News Thursday that "there is still some work to do" to gain the release of three Americans held as prisoners in North Korea, despite a claim by Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani that the men would be freed that day.


    Giuliani told "Fox & Friends" Thursday morning that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un was "impressed enough" with President Donald Trump that he would "be releasing three prisoners today." Giuliani's statement echoed reports by South Korea's Yonhap News, the Financial Times and CNN that the men -- Kim Dong Chul, Kim Hak Song, and Tony Kim -- would be freed soon.


    However, the administration official told Fox News that Giuliani had gotten ahead of events on the ground in North Korea. That was confirmed Thursday afternoon by White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders and State Department spokesman Heather Nauert.

    I do agree a good diplomatic point with NK and its working...well done TRUMP.

    BUT his stance against IRAN is stupid.

    But as in the past he is talking to the people.

    Breath of fresh air to the last two POTUS you have had.

    BUT and there is a BUT about him.

    Time will tell

    I switch between CNN and Fox and find them both acting like idiots.

    They are both controlled by the same group Fox has a little more guys at talking about what is going on but will still not get into the truth. The others are just propaganda for the deep state.

    Not really the same, but headed in the same direction by a different route: CNN-liberal/progressive, FOX-neoconservative.

    Yes, there is some talk of the peace prize but if it really is presented, will the president accept it?
    I’m not too sure that being in the same company as Yassar Arafat, Al Gore and Obama would excite me very much even though there’s a million dollars that comes with the plaque.

    It has just been announced that the prisoner are on their way home. How will the media distort that news they will probably say it was Obama. Ha Ha

    As with the last two that he got out of North Korea, they will probably be induced to downplay any role that Trump may have had, or even to attack him verbally.

    But that's the way it is, that's the way the game is played. When Obama was president the republicans did the same.

    Trump gets extra hate because of his mouth in my opinion...if only he'd have kept off twitter and just stuck with the facts.
    He acts like a bully and that's why he gets what he gets....he's an easy target.

    Just my opinion....remember I voted for him. :)

    Trump reportedly greeted the released prisoners personally at 0200 this morning. Tom, I found it interesting that the neighbors of Iran--Saudi Arabia and Israel--both heartily support Trump's move, while those at a distance who may lose profits are against it. Crissy, Trump's mouth and Twitter definitely get him into trouble, but "they" attack him regardless. Main stream media never attacked Obama, and even the talk radio folks and columnists who did were shouted down as "birthers", racists, or bigots. The Iran deal was terminatable because Obama made an unconstitutional agreement, and couldn't submit it to the Senate as he should have because it was too unpopular and had too many loopholes for Iran to jump through. If he had submitted it to the Senate, it would have been set in stone and could not be terminated.

    Politics aside, I'm glad these souls are released. Have to wonder what psychological healing they have ahead.

    That's pushing it a little @Martin Alonzo ....he goes on rants and acts like a bully sometimes.

    He could just as well tweet his message a little more diplomatically.

    Trump is used to being on a big stage, but not quite the stage he is on now. Like the current Pope, he often makes statements before he considers the consequences of what he says, Sometimes what looks like a rant is carefully scripted to upset a group, while other times, he makes a statement or delivers a rant the consequences of which have not been considered. All the rants he was criticized for concerning the "Little Rocket Man" and "My button is bigger than yours" accomplished what they were intended to do--use Kim's own techniques against him. We don't yet know what the end result will be since China is a major player in the drama, and it may all end up with a united Korea under the control of China. In any case, no one has done this before and we do not know what the outcome will be.

    I have a feeling Kim has some tricks up his sleeve, he'll never let Trump come out the winner.

    I am worried about China more than Kim. I guess they arrive at Andrews at 0200 on Thursday morning. I was 24 hours off. We can only wait and see. At least it isn't thee ol' give 'em everything they want to shut them up.
