President Trump greeted three American prisoners freed by North Korea Thursday morning, marking a significant diplomatic milestone between the longtime adversaries.

Shortly after, Trump and first lady Melania Trump boarded the plane to meet the Americans before accompanying them to the tarmac. 

"The fact we were able to get them out so soon was a tribute to a lot of things," President Trump said to a crowd of journalists. "I just want to say, this is a special night."

This is a historic moment for America and is further proof of the negotiation skills of Trump and his administration.
