    I don't see Trump's presidency as chaotic. I think some people do not see Trump's overall plan, therefore what he does seems chaotic to them.

    They will never be the same. They will need deep psychological help in dealing with the torture that they endured. I am sure they were beaten mercilessly on a Regular basis. That is the norm in the NK system. I am very glad they are free. However, that was only step one please don’t drop the ball this time as I do not want to read of another suicide of an ex NK detainee.

    “Chaotic Trump presidency”? The liberal media can’t stop their brainwashing effort. This release would never have occurred under Hillary.

    The Democrat party are the most Racist & Fascist group of people on the planet today. They call people "Their brown slaves" like their "me too movement" hero NY Attorney General Eric Schneiderman for example. I've never in my life heard a Republican refer to a person as "Brown" but Democrats I hear referring to people & judging their personality by their skin color, race and/or ethnic grouping everyday. I live in L.A. Ca & I'm a minority so I know what I'm talking about.

      jose N I also heard stocks would crash, the nation would go into a recession, all Hispanics and Muslims would be deported, homosexuals and blacks would get their rights taken away, unemployment would go up, wages would go down, foreign nations would reject Trump, he would start WW3, Trump will be impeached before 100 days in office and the best one, Trump will never become president. Aren’t you tired of being wrong?
