North Korea: Trump Undermining Peace Efforts With Hostile Acts

US seeks talks, but keeps seeking more UN sanctions

North Korea’s UN Mission issued a statement on Wednesday criticizing the Trump Administration, saying that while continuing to publicly court dialogue with North Korea, they continue to take hostile actions against them.

This comes after President Trump’s weekend visit with Kim Jong Un, along the demilitarized zone. Just a day before that visit, the US was involved in a joint letter calling for all UN member states to expel all North Korean workers. 

The US call for this expulsion came with a US allegation that North Korea had violated a cap on petroleum imports. The State Department ordered this the same day that the US proposed Trump’s visit to meet with Kim.

This confusion about US intentions has been a recurring problem for North Korea, as while on the one hand Trump has repeatedly talked up diplomacy and predicted very positive results, US actions have told a very different story, and an expectation of a worsening situation.

It is this same divide which has informed the diplomatic problems so far, as North Korea has seen its agreements met with more and more US sanctions, and wonders if the US ever intends to deliver anything else as part of an agreement.

The Donald was so nice. Laying praise on Mr Kim. Smiling. Calming walking the line for the – I’m the 1st President – photo. Perfect US scam. North Korea only had to refuse to look the winner.

Kim should have known better; US has a history of betrayal and reneging.

Well, thats the Trickster Tumpeters job.

His Masters, the Rats, simply MUST have WAR, WW 3 in fact.
The Rat Pack have been planning WW 3 for generations!
Do you think the Rats will allow humanity not wanting the slaughter, and their desire for peace, to interfere with the Rats lust for more loot, control freak power and innocent shed blood?
