This proves it: Trump puts Americans FIRST!
President Trump is fiercely dedicated to saving America and its citizens.
The Trump administration has sworn to bring American hostages back to the US, and their efforts have been remarkably successful thus far.
In his first year alone, Trump secured the release of 17 Americans who were held as hostages in foreign countries.
Captives in Venezuela, North Korea, Iran, China, and Egypt have found their way home thanks to the masterful negotiation of our Commander-in-Chief.
And now another American has been saved, this time from a country torn apart by a bloody civil war.
From USA Today:
“President Donald Trump said Monday that an American oil worker who was abducted in Yemen in 2017 had been reunited with his wife and children.
Danny Burch, a Texas man, was kidnapped on a busy street in Sanaa, the Yemeni capital, according to a 2017 New York Times story.
Yemen has been locked in civil war since 2015.”
You didn’t hear this sort of news often when Barack Obama was president, did you?
Perhaps it’s because President Trump always puts Americans first … no matter where they are around the globe.
The President tweeted the joyful news to his followers, stating:
“It is my honor today to announce that Danny Burch, a United States citizen who has been held hostage in Yemen for 18 months…
…has been recovered and reunited with his wife and children.“
It is my honor today to announce that Danny Burch, a United States citizen who has been held hostage in Yemen for 18 months, has been recovered and reunited with his wife and children. I appreciate the support of the United Arab Emirates in bringing Danny home…

This is what a REAL leader does; he doesn’t leave his own people to die in foreign prisons or be executed.
Under Obama’s watch, innocent Americans like Otto Warmbier were captured and tortured by hostile regimes.
Remember the tragic tale of Otto Warmbier?
Otto was just 22 years old when he was imprisoned by North Korea for allegedly trying to take a poster from his hotel.
Trump was able to secure Otto’s release, but sadly Warmbier died shortly after returning to the US from injuries he sustained while being tortured.
But Warmbier’s parents thanked President Trump for his tireless efforts to bring their son home, and slammed Barack Obama for barely lifting a finger to intervene on their son’s behalf.
Otto’s father said the Obama administration even told him and his wife to not publicly discuss their son’s brutal imprisonment so as to not “offend” North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.
“We’ve been forced to be quiet,” Fred Warmbier said.
“Do I think the past administration could have done more? I think the results speak for themselves.”
Obama was willing to trade five dangerous Gitmo terrorists to save traitors like Bowe Bergdahl, but couldn’t be bothered to help an innocent college student like Warmbier.
Trump is exactly the opposite:
He’s a President that puts Americans first, and he’ll do whatever it takes to keep them safe.
SHARE if this is EXACTLY what you want from a U.S. leader!
