Thumbs up North Korea Is Releasing US Detainees...

Good job President Trump!

North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un has released three U.S. citizens detained for years in his horrific prison camps, surrendering to another of President Trump?s demands in advance of a planned historic summit between the two leaders whose countries have long been adversaries.

A series of concessions by Mr. Kim, from agreeing to a goal of denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula to freeing the three Americans, has not calmed fears among Mr. Trump?s critics that he will ?wing it? in the talks and potentially empower the communist regime in Pyongyang.

Behind the scenes at the White House, however, the president has marshaled an agile team to hone a fast-paced negotiating strategy and back him up in the nuclear talks, which could be held as soon as this month or by the end of June.

The president?s combative style and the maneuvering by his team from the National Security Council and State Department have reaped early wins, but they are still far from getting Mr. Kim to give up his nuclear weapons.

?We?re in the beginning stages of the work, and the outcome is certainly yet unknown,? Mr. Pompeo, a former CIA chief, said when sworn in Wednesday as secretary of state. ?But one thing is certain: This administration will not repeat the mistakes of the past. Our eyes are wide open. It?s time to solve this once and for all. A bad deal is not an option.?

Let's hope so, but I don't trust Kim.

Whether it happens or not, at least this administration is doing something besides drawing lines in the sand and blowing smoke.

I think if no agreement is made, "bomb the outta them."
