Conciliatory move comes ahead of Trump-Kim summit.

In what many are calling a win for US President Donald Trump’s tough approach to North Korea, the communist state says they will release three US citizens held prisoner in the country.

As first reported by the Financial times, a South Korean activist said the detainees would be released, something backed up by former New York City Mayor and current member of Trump’s legal team Rudy Giuliani.

The detained Americans are Kim Dong Chul, Kim Hak-song and Kim Sang Duk.

US National Security Advisor John Bolton had called for the release of the three detainees ahead of Trump’s meeting with Kim Jong-Un.

Trump hinted at the release in a tweet:Moon-Trump-hold-longest-ever-phone-call-after-inter-Korean-summit

“As everybody is aware, the past Administration has long been asking for three hostages to be released from a North Korean Labor camp, but to no avail. Stay tuned!”

Toughness gets results

While many elites like to think that problems are solved by everyone holding hands and singing kumbaya, the truth is that toughness is often necessary. Trump showed a greater willingness to use American military power when it comes to North Korea, and his approach has strongly contrasted with that of previous US presidents.

Now, the Korean Peninsula is closer than ever to peace (though nothing can be taken for granted when dealing with a communist regime), and the North is making conciliatory moves like a prisoner release and ending nuclear weapon tests.

Threatening language between the U.S. and North Korea is flaring. After Trump vowed to respond with “fire and fury” if Pyongyang continued to threaten the U.S., the North’s military said it is finalizing a plan to fire four midrange missiles to hit waters near the strategic U.S. territory of Guam.

This is an important lesson for all those ‘leaders’ like Trudeau who fail to realize that without the threat of action behind them, words are empty and fail to get results.
