Trump welcomes freed American after 'ordeal'

President Donald Trump, right, talks as Joshua Holt, who was recently released from a prison in Venezuela, joins him in the Oval Office of the White House, Saturday, May 26, 2018, in Washington. But, with all due respect, for the Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to express laudatory comments about a narco-tyrannical regime than less than a week before Maduro expelled the USA charge d' affairs and his deputy from Venezuela - and did so in a vulgar tirade addressed to the President of the United States - seems incomprehensible to me.

Earlier, President Donald Trump said via Twitter that Holt will arrive Saturday night in Washington, D.C., where he will be reunited with his family at the White House. Orrin Hatch. Holt's wife, Thamy, has also been released, Hatch said.

"Looking forward to seeing Joshua Holt this evening in the White House", he tweeted.

'We have good people working with us, and the folks in this delegation all very sincerely wanted to get Josh out of there, ' he said.

Holt was arrested in June 2016, after he had traveled to Venezuela to marry Thamy.

Until Trump's tweet on Saturday, the US had stopped short of publicly calling Holt a "hostage".

"In most cases, they're Americans, but we can try and help other countries, too, where there's injustice", the President said.

At the White House, Trump told Holt he had been "incredibly courageous".

Holt's Venezuelan wife, Thamara, was arrested alongside him, but was also freed on Saturday and brought to the U.S. with her daughter. He said in a statement that, at Sen.

"We're grateful to all who participated in this miracle", Holt's family said in a statement.

Trump shook hands with Corker's staffer, who played an instrumental role in setting up communications for Holt's release.

In a harrowing recent Facebook post, Holt pleaded for help and for his life, from a Caracas jail.
