Earlier Wednesday, the president announced that, as a goodwill gesture ahead of a historic summit, North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has agreed to release three Americans he was holding as prisoners.

The three — Kim Hak-Song, Kim Dong-Chul and Kim Sang-Duk, who is also known as Tony Kim — are on a plane with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo heading back to the U.S. at this very moment.

“I am pleased to inform you that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is in the air and on his way back from North Korea with the 3 wonderful gentlemen that everyone is looking so forward to meeting. They seem to be in good health. Also, good meeting with Kim Jong Un. Date & Place set,” President Donald J. Trump tweeted upon hearing the news.

“Secretary Pompeo and his ‘guests’ will be landing at Andrews Air Force Base at 2:00 A.M. in the morning. I will be there to greet them. Very exciting!” he added.

“I appreciate Kim Jong-un allowing this to happen,” Trump later said during a Cabinet meeting at the White House, adding that he will announce a location, date, and time within days.

Pompeo had previously met with Kim over the Easter weekend when he was still the CIA director. Those talks were aimed at breaking the ice, so to speak, and to set the stage for future talks designed to denuclearize the Korean peninsula.

Kim’s been on a charm offensive of late, which is in part what has led to the upcoming summit with Trump. It’s not at all clear what will come of all of this, as Kim has been regularly traveling to China to meet with his benefactor, President Xi Jinping, ahead of talks with Trump and South Korean President Moon Jae-in, the latter of which has already taken place.

But one thing is certain: Trump has made far more progress in bringing a lasting peace to the Korean peninsula than any of his predecessors.

And if he can convince Kim to get rid of his nuclear weapons in exchange for the lifting of economic sanctions and integration back into the international community, Trump and his team will have pulled off a diplomatic coup so dramatic it will make everyone on Obama’s foreign policy team look like chumps.

Much will have to happen. We have a long way to go, for sure.

But we’re closer now than we’ve ever been, and it’s thanks to Trump.
