Trump Shrugs Off Apparent North Korean Threat

President Trump seems unconcerned about an apparent threat couched as a “Christmas Surprise” from North Korea.

While speaking to reporters just before the Christmas Holiday, the president said “everyone’s got surprises” for him and he’ll “handle them as they come along.”

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un made the threat earlier this month and said the Trump administration is running out of time on nuclear negotiations. The veiled threat came after months of sometimes diplomacy, sometimes bluster and little progress between the two nations. President Donald Trump met with Kim at the Hanoi Summit in late February, which led to working-level talks in Stockholm in October. Trump has consistently framed the negotiations in positive terms, but no concrete agreements have been reached.

The president said he will wait and see what the surprise is.

“We’ll see what happens. Maybe it’s a nice present. Maybe it’s a present where he sends me a beautiful vase, as opposed to a missile test. Right? I may get a nice present from him. You never know.”

Defense officials responded to North Korea’s threat last week. They said the military is at a high level of readiness in case of a missile launch from Pyongyang.

Well, as you now know, Christmas has come and gone, and thus far North Korea has not bestowed any kind of “gift” — threatening or otherwise – to the US or to President Trump.

The U.S. has been unwilling to sharply curtail the crippling economic sanctions that have weighed down the already battered North Korean economy unless Pyongyang completely swears off its nuclear arsenal. Kim has balked, demanding an end to those sanctions before signing off on any disarmament.

    It’s pitiful how the North Korean leaders treat their
    starving population. There is no love for the NK
    people. The NK leadership only loves itself, and appears to only feed itself. Recent photos taken in country illustrate a
    third world country on the brink of collapse. Why does the NK
    leadership not shelve it’s nuclear ambitions to become a member of the world community, and enjoy the benefits that it’s
    People so desperately need. Total insanity. It’s time for a change in leadership.

    Let’s get someone in the White House that knows what they are doing. Trump has no foreign policy experience. Hes a crooked New York real estate broker

    Kim and everyone else in this world has observed the Islamic negotiations thru the years and learned how to play it. Neither will ever give way. No point in trying. Just a waste of time, effort, and money! Protect yourselves, be ready to defend, keep them isolated! And then ignore them!
    On a different note, what do you all think about Trump actually being a a globalistic ploy continuing the idea of creating divsion and confusion, for misdirection of attention, while they carry out their slow methodical undermining of this country?

    Keep up the pressure. Even China is. tired of this DESPOT. Blustery talk is worthless. This despotic regime needs to be overthrown. This WILL happen from INSIDE the country. The people and the military both have to be at the point of revolt. This man cares NOTHING for his people, only for totalitarian control.

    The former leader’s son is a spoiled little guy.
    Maybe Kim jog long found his dads movie collection
    and now he’s living a fantasy Bruce lee style.
    He doesn’t realize his world is about to crumble around him,
    and he will be the first to leave his own country when the shooting starts.
