Trump Remains Hopeful for North Korea Despite Alleged Repairs at Rocket Site

(ANTIWAR.COM– Asked about reports that North Korea may have repaired a roof and door at a rocket test site, President Trump has said his relationship with North Korea remains “good,” but he’d be “very, very disappointed in Chairman Kim” if the reports prove true.

Trump added that he doesn’t think he will be disappointed, and remains hopeful that a deal is still there to be made. Future talks are expected to be at lower levels, according to most officials, with no timeframe for a third summit yet.

Trump further said that despite reports on the North Korean construction being made by thinktanks, the US government “had a hand” in those reports coming out, suggesting it was some sort of negotiating tactic.

While they clearly wanted to make this report of new work at the site look bad, the reality is that neither a roof nor a re-hung door is definitive proof that North Korea is preparing for new missile tests.

Anti-Media’s independent journalism and analysis takes substantial time, resources, and effort to produce, but we do it because we believe in our message and hope you do, too.
