President Trump Welcomes Joshua Holt Back To the U.S…

This evening President Trump welcomed home Joshua Holt, a young man who had been imprisoned in Venezuela for nearly two years.  Mr. Holt and his family are from Utah.  The family, the State Department team and a group of U.S. politicians who participated in the negotiations for his release, held a short Oval Office press availability.

Senator Orrin Hatch (Utah), Senator Bob Corker (Chairman of Foreign Affairs Committee), Senator Mike Lee (Utah), Representative Mia Love (Utah) and a number of key State Department officials were present. Toward the end of the remarks President Trump spoke briefly about the latest discussions surrounding a possible summit with North Korea.

      He makes it look easy. It almost makes me wonder if maybe the prior administration didn’t want these Americans released.

        Oh Obummer got some released but only if they were traitors like Bergdahl who he could use to turn loose five high-ranking members of the Taliban.

    It’s just amazing what our president has accomplished in such a short period of time. Who would have dreamed we would see so many freed American hostages in different parts of the world return home safe. imo, none of our previous presidents could have done this successfully.

    May God bless our president, Joshua, and his family.

      So proud of you. I’m Canadian, a terrible problem.
      If any Canadian follows Donald J. Trump or pro PDJT-related websites, we’re designated as radical extremists by RCMP and police.
      We see it in police reports to media. The first issue is always the individual followed PDJT twitter or whatever.
      This is not a joke.

        I understand why my comment is in moderation. Nonetheless, it’s true.
        Any type of senseless very violent act, authorities check the people or websites the individual followed. If Trump is related, they make sure it’s mentioned as the first criterion.
        Terribly tragic.
        If you need further proof, do a web search on last year’s Ottawa Mayor Watson’s Twitter who doesn’t want to give protection to PDJT if he visits Canada. I was floored.

          Everyone’s initial comment requires “moderation” Sunshine…it’s not a Big Brother thing, it’s just a WordPress thing.

          BTW…It’s even worse in England. The owner of this website …https://sweasel.com/… married an Englishman, and moved to his 300 y/o ancestral home in So. England. She was told her citizenship might be in jeopardy if she blogged about “her conservative views”.

        I am an Ontarian and have never heard of that! I adore and respect President Donald J Trump and make it well known on Canadian websites, never had an issue. Now Jihadi Justine Trudope should be classified as a radical extremist and I am not the only one that believes that. Our opposition leader called Trudope out on his giving money to Omar Kadhar and his other muslim friend where he vacationed. It was Andrew Shear and I will be voting for him. These exchanges happened in Parliament. Sunshine I am sorry but have no idea where you have come up with that?

      It was actually quite touching to hear Senator Hatch’s comments toward President Trump – tells him he loves him and calls him “boy” – “We love you, boy” – so ironic to hear our 71 year old being called that, but I guess Hatch is quite a bit older. It just struck me as a sincere moment from one older man to another – and you could tell President Trump was very touched. I don’t usually like Hatch, but his comments here were very nice.

        Just my observation – I think they were a bit overwhelmed. Josh’ s mother was sincere in her thanks but remember they haven’t been dealing with the President. They’ve been dealing with the Congressional Reps and State Dept. I saw no problem with how they responded. Not everyone can come thru that emotional turmoil and remember what to say in such a high pressure situation (cameras, press, VIPs. )

Trump’s ability to be civil towards those who have treated him poorly is miraculous. I hope they are ashamed of themselves…

    When Trump announced on Twitter that Josh was coming home, earlier today, I saw nothing but terrible comments from liberal losers in reply. It turned my stomach. “Oh, just a photo op,” and “What about the 1500 immigrant children missing” and just total trash being said. People even said, “Why don’t you let the man go home to his family in UT first before making him appear at the White House?” and I just….got so disheartened.

    But then, we see photos like this, and I read comments from my fellow Treepers, and I feel happy again.

    Gosh but I hate what the haters do. But I sure do love our President. And you guys. xo.

      Let the Left spew it’s hate… its the act of a dying and discredited movement that has metastasized into the cancer that tried to destroy America but now under Pres. Trump about to implode. As Thomas Wictor has pointed out in his tweets, “A Demon is loudest before it departs.”

      The venom the Left throws is all they have now. Antifa their militant wing is now discredited and silent while trying to figure what their gender of the day is. The Democrat leadership is tired and elderly with the closest thing they have to new blood is the Drooling son of a Kennedy, a political family that relies on imagined legacy paved by lies and suffering.

      For the first time in my life since I was a child during the Reagan Administration I can feel America get STRONGER! We are winning! So let the Left hate, because the future is OURS. Because Pres. Trump is literally making the world BETTER by being UNASHAMEDLY AMERICAN AND PROUD! So be proud and unashamedly and don’t let anyone on the Left discourage you from enjoying Twitter, and most importantly don’t be afraid to fight back in this battle field of ideas!

    It is so nice that our people are being returned home.

    I’ve been to foreign countries….on my very best behavior cause stuff is different than here for sho. Some government representatives are very confrontational and feeling like a target instead of a visitor is not a good feeling. I was at a marketplace and government jeeps drove by and all the shopkeepers left to throw rocks and chase the jeeps. Didn’t know what they were screaming, but I got the idea real quick.

    In my entire life, I have never seen a President live on television on a Saturday night. He works all the time and desperately needs our prayers. He has so much courage and kindness and love and strength. Senator Hatch is in awe of PDJT and gave the most tremendous statement of support to President Trump. It is not even worth talking about the previous Administration which was so weak, feckless, and ineffective.

  14. To hear all the emotion & to hear Senator Hatch speak was just WOW! There was a real true effort & love behind this. Same with the 3 hostages from North Korea & Otto. You could hear the tears in their voices & it brought tears to my eyes, how people can not hear or see this well it would be simply because of fake news. I know Senator Corker & President Trump have had their differences but there was ZERO animosity here & you could hear his appreciation for everything President Trump did. All of them & the family were so thankful.
    I was not familiar with Congresswoman Mia Love, So I looked her up & she is a Republican. I have to wonder how the democrats feel knowing they have not been involved in any of this. It is truly sad. All of these people sat in these countries not knowing what was going to happen to them during Former President Obama time in the White House & now not a single democrat has been involved (if i’m mistaken please correct me), how does that make people voting for Democrats feel? If you or someone YOU LOVE is taken hostage? It scares the daylights out of me, knowing that one group of people has been unwilling to do anything. What did President Trump say 17 hostages now released, and Mia Love said she has complete confidence in our President & so should the people (or something close to that).
    Thank you, this was wonderful to watch as has just about every day since President Trump announced he would be running!

    I was held against my will in a corrupt socialist state until I was in my mid 50’s, watching my normally healthy optomistic self deteriorate.
    After years of playing along and pretending to believe the constant indoctrination, I was able to hide away a little food and money to make my escape.
    When the time was right, I quickley and quietly moved in the shadows from tree to tree over 250 miles to the east where I finally crossed the border into Nevada where I’ve been since.
    Now, the corruption here is just as bad and they don’t even try to hide it but if a bunch of people kick in my door in the middle of the night with the intent of doing me harm, I can thunk them without having to worry about spending the rest of my life in prison for violating the rights of a “protected” class.

      Mormons have as a requirement to take (I think it is 2 years) time to go out into the world to present the Mormon point of view. What Mia Love said about Trump having their backs will ring in the halls and nomes of every Mormon.

      There is no way to understate the importance of this issue. It will never be forgotten in that community.

        MVW – the LDS Church provides their youth with an opportunity to serve as missionaries beginning at age 18, but it is not a “requirement” as you suggest. However, you are correct in your statement that the importance of knowing President Trump and the United States will support them if needs be is HUGE, as missionaries are posted all over the world.

Harry, with all his SJW activism, should surely see that freedom of speech should be available to ALL UK citizens. You can’t have it both ways – good for muslims but not anyone else. Come on, Harry! Man up on this one and do what is right!
