Trump appears to contradict Bolton on North Korea, expresses 'confidence' in Kim

Source: Washington Post

President Trump appeared to contradict his national security adviser on foreign soil in an early morning tweet Sunday, noting that while some in his administration were “disturbed” by North Korea’s testing of ballistic missiles earlier this month, the president himself was unbothered.

Trump’s tweet was a direct rebuke of his national security adviser, John Bolton, who on Saturday had warned reporters here that there is “no doubt” North Korea’s missile tests violated United Nations Security Council resolutions, adding that Trump is determined to maintain sanctions pressure on the regime until it backs down.

“North Korea fired off some small weapons, which disturbed some of my people, and others, but not me,” Trump wrote. “I have confidence that Chairman Kim will keep his promise to me.”

The Twitter missive is also likely to complicate Trump’s visit with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, with whom he was set to play golf Sunday morning. The Japanese have long argued for a tougher line against North Korea, with Abe pushing hard for no sanctions relief for North Korea.

9. Kim must have stroked...

Donnie's fragile ego, or something else Donnie loves to have stroked. That's all you have to do to get Donnie to lavish praise on you. Butter the orange puffball up a little bit, and he'll be you bestest pal forever. What an asshole.
