The president announced that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is bringing Kim Dong Chul, Kim Hak-song and Tony Kim back home with him after meeting with Kim Jong Un. The detainees’ release was a prerequisite for any negotiations with North Korea, so the development is a significant milestone as Trump prepares to engage in talks aimed at the rogue nation’s denuclearization.

Even though the president has countless political and media critics, it seems everyone can agree that the release of the three detainees is undeniably good news.
