The great news was delivered hours after Trump and Melania celebrated the home coming of three American detainees from North Korea, greeting them when they landed at Andrews Air Force Base.
“Some in the media, including CNN’s Chris Cuomo, called the moment the highlight of Trump’s presidency, a sharp break from their usual White House coverage,” reports the Daily Caller.
However, that doesn’t mean other MSM outlets didn’t criticize the moment.
