Trump Frees Another American Hostage
Another American in prison by a terrible regime has returned home. The Trump administration secured the release and President Trump was there to welcome the prisoner home.

According to The Daily Caller:

The Trump administration has secured the release of an American who has been held prisoner in Venezuela for two years without trial.

Joshua Holt, a 26-year-old Utah native, and his Venezuelan wife Thamy returned to the U.S. Saturday evening for a tearful reunion with Holt’s mother and father. Sen. Orrin Hatch, a Republican representing Utah, tweeted a video of the touching moment. His mother held her son tight while his father joked, “Need someone to mow the lawn. It’s about time!”

At a press briefing at the White House, Holt told President Donald Trump who praised Holt for his bravery during a “tough ordeal,” that he is “overwhelmed with gratitude.”

Trump pointed out that his administration has secured the release of 17 prisoners from countries like Egypt, North Korea, and now Venezuela. The president thanked Sen. Bob Corker, Rep. Mia Love, Sen. Hatch, and Rep. Mike Lee for their role in getting Holt home.

  This news comes on the heels of the release of three American prisoners held in North Korea. Trump was there to welcome them home with open arms as well.
