Trump extends “No Longer a Threat” North Korea’s Economic Restrictions

imagesDespite saying days earlier that North Korea was no longer a nuclear threat, Trump – with no fanfare whatsoever – signed an executive order on Friday and extended for one year the so-called β€œnational emergency” with respect to the nuclear-armed nation, re-authorizing economic restrictions against it.

Nine days after Trump tweeted: β€œThere is no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea,” following the Singapore summit.

So, which is it, Donald?

The Executive Order states that β€œthe existence and risk of proliferation of weapons-usable fissile material” and the actions and policies of the North Korean government β€œcontinue to pose an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the United States”.

Trump lied at a cabinet meeting JUST THE DAY BEFORE, declaring that denuclearization had already begun. Hmm, because his defense secretary, James Mattis, told reporters a day earlier that he wasn’t aware that North Korea had taken any steps yet toward denuclearization, and that detailed negotiations have not yet begun.

Bare-faced liar that every Republican uses to their advantage.Β  Sick puppies all.
