An Israeli intelligence report concludes that the U.S. ‘retreated from its position’ on several key issues during talks with North Korea.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says it’s ‘insulting’ and ‘ridiculous’ to even ask questions about the details of the deal Trump made with North Korea.
By calling U.S. military exercises with South Korea ‘provocative,’ Trump is repeating the talking points that a brutal dictator has used to smear America for decades.
Bruce Klinger, the former Central Intelligence Agency deputy division chief for Korea, on Tuesday called Donald Trump’s “historic” agreement with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un “disappointing”…
There was that time when Sen. Ted Cruz and other Republicans lambasted Obama for visiting Cuba while there were still political prisoners in that country.
Trump’s already making excuses for himself in case his summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un turns out to be a huge bust.
The Pyongyang government, which had candidly expressed its “repugnance” for Bolton, called the vice president “a political dummy” whose comments were “ignorant and stupid.”
You may not have noticed. There’s no reason why you should have, fixated as we all are on the daily torrent of presidential tweets and the flood of mindless rejoinders they elicit.
He even taunted eager reporters with its contents, saying, “Oh, would you like to see what was in that letter.” He even pretended to take bids to reveal what it said.
Trump later announced that the summit with Kim scheduled for June 12 in Singapore is back on after he had canceled the meeting last week.
Trump hosted North Korea’s top envoy at the White House, but he didn’t bother to talk about the country’s gross human rights abuses.
According to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, it looks like Trump’s letter ‘cancelling’ the North Korea summit was just a bad attempt to save face.
When, in early March, Donald Trump agreed to meet North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, the Washington foreign policy elite nearly suffered a collective heart attack.
North Korea has reportedly agreed going into the talks to accept the U.S. military presence, but it remains to be seen if the U.S. will agree to alter its military posture and force structure from one of war preparation to a goal of non-aggression.
On Dec. 14, 2016, one month after his election, President-elect Donald Trump had a call with the prime minister of Vietnam. At a time when foreign governments were scrambling to contact Trump, the conversation was a victory for the Vietnamese. State television broadcast footage of the call, with the prime minister surrounded by other smiling officials.
Trump has spent more than a year provoking North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un with childish taunts, but on Tuesday he declared the brutal dictator “very honorable.” At an expanded bilateral meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron, Trump spoke before cameras on a variety of subjects, including his upcoming summit with Kim.
Anytime two enemies sit down to resolve their differences peacefully rather than through war, hopes rise that reason will prevail and compromise will emerge. On Twitter, Trump assured everyone, “Denuclearization will be a great thing for World, but also for North Korea!” It’s tempting to think that his combination of insults, threats and economic pressure has caused the North Koreans to see the error of their ways.
It was bad enough that Trump falsely claimed that North Korea had promised to “denuclearize” ahead of the upcoming summit. But when asked about it later, White House legislative affairs director Marc Short didn’t even know what the word meant.
