Trump Jeopardizes Reporters By Canceling Summit While They Are In N. Korea

Source: PoliticusUSA, by Jason Easley

*****



The White House could have waited to release the letter until after the journalists had safely gotten out of North Korea.

In 2016, a BBC crew was detained and expelled from North Korea. In 2017, the regime sentenced South Korean journalists and their publishers to death in absentia because they wrote a book about North Korea.

North Korea is not a safe country for journalists. Trump risked the safety of journalists because he had to throw a tantrum because Kim Jong-un insulted Mike Pence. This is not how foreign relations should ever be conducted, but as usual, Trump shows a total disregard for anyoneís life but his own.

Trump isnít just failing. His failures are jeopardizing innocent lives.

I cant get the new animated stuff yet being here in the States. Brent Butt is the creator, he makes me laugh. The show is silly, almost dumb, but sometimes I need that.

7. That's why I don't serve on juries!

I have no idea what most people mean!

And I lost my sense of humor back sometime in November 2016.

9. Trump is probably more fearful of the press

than Kim - Kim has never had to deal with a free press.

10. It didn't help that he thanked him profusely for releasing the hostages.

Now Kim has an incentive to take more! Trump is not just a fool, he's a dangerous fool.
