Good Job, Mr. President
The Liberal Left just can’t say the words “Good Job Mr. President”. Shortly after President Trump announced that the Americans held hostage by North Korea had been released and were on the way home with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo several Democrats immediately started down playing the release.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer bizarrely attacked the Trump administration Wednesday over the successful release of three American prisoners; suggesting the hostages were used as “bargaining chips.”
Schumer offered his scathing critique just hours after Secretary of State Mike Pompeo left the Korean peninsula with the three prisoners by his side; saying “No regime has the right to hold American citizens in captivity without cause, and under no circumstances should American citizens be viewed as bargaining chips.”
What! What! Where did Schumer get the idea that President used the hostages as Pawns in a Chess Game?Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-Tex.), commended Trump and Pompeo for their efforts. But, he added, “Let’s also remember that we have gotten to this point with North Korea before and things fell apart.”
But? Why is there always a But?
Melissa Hanham, a researcher at the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies, in Monterrey, California said “It definitely reinforces Trump’s credibility and gives him something tangible and quantifiable as a step forward but the world should take pause before celebrating, because it is one step in a very long and fraught relationship that will unfold over time.”
Take pause before celebrating? Are you crazy, we just got our people back.
Yet another Liberal stated, “The release of three Americans is a small price for Kim to pay to secure a meeting with the U.S. president. While the move gives Trump the first real win from his decision to break with decades of diplomatic orthodoxy and grant the summit, it says little about Kim’s willingness to surrender his nuclear weapons program”.
The three hostages released are Kim Dong-chul, Kim Sang-duk and Kim Hak-song, who were arrested in North Korea and sentenced to around a decade each of hard labor.
Pompeo and the detainees will be landing at Andrews Air Force Base at 2:00 A.M. Thursday, Washington time.
President Trump said. “I will be there to greet them. Very exciting!”
Trump didn’t disclose the date and location of his planned summit with Kim, but the release of the American detainees was heralded as a significant diplomatic signal by Pyongyang. The move allows the two sides to focus on what if any deal can come from the first-ever meeting between a sitting U.S. president and North Korea’s leader.
