A Utah man who has been incarcerated in a Venezuelan jail since 2016 was on a flight home to the U.S., Venezuelan officials said Saturday.
Joshua Holt, 26, has been jailed in Venezuela after he traveled to the South American country in the summer of 2016 to marry Thamara Candelo, whom he met on a website for Mormon singles. The two planned to return to the U.S. after getting married, but where jailed in El Hilcolde on what human rights groups said were largely trumped-up charges.
Good news about the release of the American hostage from Venezuela. Should be landing in D.C. this evening and be in the White House, with his family, at about 7:00 p.m. The great people of Utah will be very happy! President Donald Trump said in an early morning tweet.

why was he released
He may be coming back with a few less gold fillings.
The jackwagon Senator Hatch could not even thank Trump when he took credit for the release.
That is the question.
I remember this guys video from last week.
Hopefully he has learned his lesson about traveling to shithole countries in the future.
He is lucky to be coming back, at all. Im surprised they didnt toss him in the stew pot long ago.
No kidding. Pretty much visiting anywhere outside of the USA just isn't worth the trouble or risk. There's more than enough to see here to fill 1000 lifetimes.
I especially have no sympathy for amateur "Soldier of Fortune" fanboys who set out as "independent contractors" to shiite holes like Iran, Pakistan, or Afghanistan. If they are lucky they are killed outright. Most will die a slow death of years of imprisonment in conditions worse than hell.
And what of the hot mormon number he was going to marry? Or was it a lark on her part, just to lure the gringo down there and get him thrown into the pokey?
“Hopefully he has learned his lesson about traveling to shithole countries in the future.
Dumshit will probably want to go to North Korea next.
“Pretty much visiting anywhere outside of the USA just isn’t worth the trouble or risk. “
That goes for a good chunk of USA as well.
