Trump Reaffirms North Korean Nuclear Threat After Saying It Was Gone
President Donald Trump told Congress in a letter on Friday that North Koreas provocative, destabilizing, and repressive actions…continue to constitute an unusual and extraordinary threat to the United States. The letter, which notes the countrys pursuit of nuclear and missile programs, comes just over a week after Trump boasted on Twitter that there is no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea. Everybody can now feel much safer than the day I took office, he said. Trump told Congress in the letter that he plans to extend the national emergency with respect to North Korea and the restrictions it imposeswhich were put in place under George W. Bush in 2008 and amended multiple times sincefor at least one additional year.
