Donald Trump spent the early hours of Thursday morning loitering on the tarmac of Joint Base Andrews to greet three Korean-American prisoners, who hours earlier had been released by North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

The president personally greeted Kim Dong Chul, Kim Hak Song and Tony Kim, who landed on U.S. soil just after 2 a.m. ET. The trio flew home with Mike Pompeo after the secretary of state traveled to Pyongyang to secure their release — part of the ongoing rapprochement that will culminate in a summit next month between Trump and Kim.

Trump said he “very much appreciated” that Kim had released the prisoners as an act of goodwill ahead of their meeting.
