President Donald Trump announced Monday that Danny Burch, a United States citizen who was being held hostage in Yemen, has been released and reunited with his family.

From Daily Caller:

“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,” Trump tweeted. “I appreciate the support of the United Arab Emirates in bringing Danny home.”

Burch moved to Yemen in 2003 to work in the oil industry and live with his Yemeni wife and three children. He was allegedly kidnapped in “broad daylight” in 2017 after dropping his children off at school.

By securing Burch’s release, President Donald Trump has extended an already successful record on hostage negotiations.
