White House: American oil worker abducted in Yemen reunited with family
UPI, Feb 25, 2019

An American oil worker who was abducted in Yemen in 2017 has been reunited with his family, the White House announced Monday.

President Donald Trump and U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo confirmed that Danny Burch, a Texas man who had been captured while living in Yemen, was recovered and reunited with his wife and children after 18 months in captivity.

"In 2017, U.S. citizen Danny Burch was taken hostage from Sanaa, Yemen. Today he is safe and secure, and is reunited with his wife and children. The family has asked for privacy as they recover from this ordeal," Pompeo said.

Trump and the U.S. State Department also thanked the United Arab Emirates for its support in Burch's recovery.

Here Are The 17 Prisoners Trump Has Freed Since He Took Office
Daily Caller, Feb 25, 2019

Since President Donald Trump took office, his administration has secured the release of 17 prisoners foreign governments had detained.

“We’ve had 17 released, and we’re very proud of that record. Very proud. And we have others coming,” Trump said Saturday evening as he welcomed home Joshua Holt, an American citizen who had been detained in Venezuela for two years without trial.

Unlike his predecessor, the president has managed to bring these prisoners home without freeing terrorists or paying millions of dollars in suspected ransom payments.

“We have others coming. We’re in the midst of some very big negotiations to get others out. In most cases, they’re Americans, but we can try and help other countries too, where there’s injustice. So we’ve been working very hard on it,” Trump said Saturday evening, making references to four Americans held captive in Iran and a North Carolina pastor held hostage in Turkey.

Winning.
I Believe in the United States of America as a Government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a republic; a sovereign nation of many sovereign states; a perfect union, one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes. I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it; to support its Constitution, to obey its laws; to respect its flag; and to defend it against all enemies.
