President Trump on Thursday announced 48-year-old Navy Veteran Michael White, who had been detained in Iran for over a year and a half, was on a Swiss plane on his way back to the US. “We expect him to be home with his family in America very soon,” Trump wrote. “I will never stop working to secure the release of all Americans held hostage overseas!”
Joanne White said, “For the past 683 days my son, Michael, has been held hostage in Iran by the (Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps) and I have been living a nightmare. I am blessed to announce that the nightmare is over, and my son is safely on his way home.”
Michael White thanked President Trump when he landed in Zurich.
