Three Americans held in a North Korean prison will be released today, Rudy Giuliani, a member of President Trump’s legal team, said Thursday.
“We got Kim Jong Un impressed enough to be releasing three prisoners today,” the former New York mayor told Fox & Friends.
President Trump, at a National Day of Prayer event at the White House a short time later, did not mention Korea directly but said “you’ll see some very good announcements very shortly.”
Giuliani made his proclamation hours after President Trump made reference to the three Americans in a tweet that reflected optimism the case of the Americans would soon be determined.
“As everybody is aware, the past Administration has long been asking for three hostages to be released from a North Korean Labor camp, but to no avail,” Trump tweeted. “Stay tuned!”
