DAILYKENN.com -- Three Americans of Korean descent wre greeted by President Donald Trump in an amazing PR coup that the mainstream media will minimize.
There are true refugees.
So what can we expect from the media?
Once again we discover that the horrific racist, Trump, is exerting his alt-right agenda by extracting Koreans from their native homeland . . . or something akin to that.
From Washington Post ▼
Three Americans held captive for more than a year in North Korea arrived at Joint Base Andrews outside Washington well before dawn Thursday to a hero’s welcome featuring President Trump, Vice President Pence and first lady Melania Trump.
Shortly before 3 a.m., in pitch black skies, a U.S. government plane made its approach to the runway with Kim Dong-chul, Tony Kim and Kim Hak-song, having been preceded by a jet carrying Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. A large American flag suspended by two fire engine cranes was arranged on the tarmac, which was lit by banks of spotlights.
The plane carrying the three Americans pulled up in front of the giant flag. The president and first lady boarded the plane, while the Pences and Pompeo waited on the tarmac. Then Trump emerged followed by the three men, one of whom raised his arms in triumph and relief as he exited the plane. The men walked down the staircase slowly but without assistance. And after the three shook hands with the other U.S. officials, Trump led the group toward the assembled media to make remarks.
“We want to thank Kim Jong Un, who was really excellent. . . . The fact we were able to get them out so soon was a tribute to a lot of things including a certain process that is taking place right now,” Trump said.
“This is a special night for these three really great people,” he added.
The arrival of the men was the culmination of a whirlwind 20 hours since the three were freed in a dramatic diplomatic moment that White House officials described as a “positive gesture of goodwill” from Kim Jong Un’s regime ahead of his planned summit with Trump.
