CLARIFICATION. Pompeo: No Sanctions Relief for Pyongyang Until After Denuclearization

Source: The Daily Beast



Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has pushed back against North Korean state media claims about the White House offering sanctions relief, saying Thursday that any concessions will be made only after denuclearization. Speaking at a press briefing with Japanese and South Korean foreign ministers in Seoul, Pompeo said President Trump was “incredibly clear” with North Korea’s Kim Jong Un about U.S. demands. “We’re going to get denuclearization,” Pompeo said, “and only then will there be relief from sanctions.” Despite concerns over Trump’s abrupt change of tone on Kim, Pompeo said the president’s recent comments on North Korea have been made “with eyes wide open.” Trump left many shocked following his meeting with Kim in Singapore this week by praising the dictator and shrugging off his numerous alleged human-rights abuses.

1. Denuclearization

Tell that sh*t to North Korea, not the American people. Stop bragging, just do it already. If you can.

4. Be careful Mike! Don't suggest anything that contradicts Delusional Dear Leader's narrative or..

you may be handed your hat, shown the door (like so many before you) and REALLY nasty tweets trashing you soon to follow.

Remember, the Great Donald says 'Kim of The North' is a good guy, we can all sleep soundly because NK's nuclear threat is OVER (because of him, of course) and there soon will be wonderful TRUMP Resorts dotting the beautiful, white sand beaches of North Korea!

Get with the program Mike! Oh and don't forget to trash the Press and call them the GREATEST ENEMY to the American people, like your boss does!

(In times like this, there just aren't enough barf smilies... )
