Following the latest missile launch from North Korea, which sparked panic as it flew over Japan before splashing down in the Pacific, Trump remained noticeably silent on the topic…until now. In a new tweet this morning, Trump has finally broken his silence saying “talking is not the answer!” to solve the North Korea crisis.
“The U. S. has been talking to North Korea, and paying them extortion money, for 25 years. Talking is not the answer!”
As Bloomberg pointed out yesterday, the delayed Trump tweet on the topic was likely the result of a new process put in place by Chief of Staff Kelly to assure that responses to such crises go through formal White House channels rather than ‘off-the-cuff” tweets.
