Along with everything else, president trump is working for the return the remaining 3 US prisoners held by north korea
We all remember the tragic case of Otto Warbier, the American student who died after being released last year by Pyongyang
The other three are 64-year-old Kim Dong Chul – who was arrested in 2010 and accused of espionage and spreading christianity before being sentenced to 10 years hard labor – 59-year-old Tony Kim – a professor and aid worker accused of committing hostile acts last April – and 55-year-old Kim Hak Song – who also last year was arrested while working at the Pyongyang University of Science and Technology.
A reporter at the abe press conference asked about the prisoners,
“The fact is that they do have three prisoners. We have been talking about them,” Trump replied. “We’re negotiating now. We are doing our very best. As you know, they’ve been there a long time. And it’s harsh treatment.”
“We fought very hard to get Otto Warmbier back. And when we came back, he was in very, very bad condition. It was a very sad event,” Trump said. “We are likewise fighting very diligently to get the three American citizens back. I think there’s a good chance of doing it. We’re having very good dialogue. We will keep you informed. But we are in there, and we are working very hard on that.”
