Trump: ‘No Longer a Threat’ North Korea Still an ‘Extraordinary Threat’

Trump: ‘No Longer a Threat’ North Korea Still an ‘Extraordinary Threat’ June 23, 2018

When he came back from the photo op with Kim Jong-un, Trump declared that North Korea’s nuclear program was “no longer a threat.” He had fixed the problem once and for all and “everybody can now feel much safer.” Here was his Tweet from last week:

But then on Friday, the White House announced that they were extending an old executive order dealing with North Korea and justified it by the “unique and extraordinary threat” that his nuclear program still poses to the United States:

“The existence and risk of proliferation of weapons-usable fissile material on the Korean Peninsula and the actions and policies of the government of North Korea continue to pose an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security, foreign policy and economy of the United States,” read the notice, delivered through the press secretary on Friday.

Humpty Trumpty strikes again. Reality is whatever he declares it to be at any given moment and if that contradicts what he said 10 minutes ago, then both are true simultaneously, or sequentially. Who are you going to believe, Trump or Trump? It’s almost like he’s just full of crap, isn’t it?
