President Trump Has FREED Another U.S. Hostage, This One From Yemen!


Amazing job, Mr. President!

Since the Mainstream Media likely won’t give this much coverage, we will!

President Trump has done it again, freeing yet another hostage.

And it wasn’t by paying ransom or releasing 5 of their prisoners in exchange (who would do that?)

Here was the official announcement from our Commander in Chief:

Here's more from the BBC:

Danny Burch "has been recovered and reunited" with his family, Mr Trump said on Twitter, thanking the United Arab Emirates for its assistance.

Mr Burch works for the Yemeni Safer oil company. He was abducted after taking his children to school. 

Since 2015, Yemen has been locked in a brutal civil war.

His Yemeni wife said he was seized in the Yemeni capital Sanaa in September 2017 after dropping his children off at an event.

"They did it in broad daylight in front of everyone," Nadia Forsa told the New York Times at the time.

His brother told KLTV-News shortly after the kidnapping that Mr Burch had moved to Yemen in 2003 to work in the oil industry.

"His wife's there, he's got three children there, and I think even if he gets released, he'll stay," said Ronald Burch, adding that he had not spoken to his brother in 15 years and that he knew about the danger of kidnapping in the region.

"He knows as well as we do that that's the price of where he's at," he told the east Texas news station.

Media captionWhere the fighting in Yemen has stopped... but not the suffering

Reuters news agency reported in late January that he was taken to Oman aboard a flight along with other senior members of the Houthi leadership.

The Iran-backed Houthis have been fighting the US-supported government in the south of the country since 2015.
