Rumbles Break Out On The Hill As Democrats Fight Against Giving President Trump Any Credit For His Efforts In Bringing Peace To The Koreas
Washington prepares to receive the three men released from North Korea. Even before the former prisoners land, the talking heads on the Hill debate what, if any, credit President Trump should receive for their release.
There isn’t a debate on a global scale as South Korea’s own president advocates for President Trump. According to NPR, Trump should be congratulated for an apparent breakthrough in relations between South Korea and North Korea, South Korean President Moon Jae-in said, “It’s President Trump who should receive the Nobel Prize. What we need is only peace,”
The remark follows Friday’s historic summit between Moon and North Korea’s Kim Jong Un, in which the two leaders agreed to work toward eliminating nuclear weapons and reaching a permanent peace deal on the Korean Peninsula — aspirations that the pair embraced without going into detail about how to achieve them.
Unfortunately, here at home, liberal lawmakers refuse to give Trump any credit and continue to bash him. Even stating that these peace talks would have happened on their own, eventually.
As Reported By BBC:
Three Americans released by North Korea on Wednesday have thanked President Donald Trump and his Secretary of State Mike Pompeo for securing their freedom.
The men are flying to Andrews Air Force Base near Washington, where Mr Trump will welcome them early on Thursday.
The White House said they had been freed as a gesture of goodwill ahead of the planned meeting between Mr Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.
Mr. Trump said the venue for the talks would be announced: “within three days”.
“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,” Kim Hak-song, Tony Kim and Kim Dong-chul said in a statement.
“We thank God and all our families and friends who prayed for us and for our return.”
The men were jailed in North Korean labor camps for alleged ‘anti-state activities’. A charge, that in North Korea’s past, could literally mean they did ANYTHING the dictator disagreed with.
