Trump promises Kim Jong Un protection from CIA spying

Source: Yahoo News

President Trump promised he wouldnít allow the CIA to use spies against North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un after reports surfaced that Kimís half brother had been a U.S. intelligence asset before he was assassinated in Malaysia.

Kim Jong Nam was killed in February 2017 ó allegedly while he was en route to meet a CIA contact ó by two women who sprayed a nerve agent in his face. U.S. officials quickly placed the blame for the killing on North Korea.

Trump, speaking to reporters on the White House lawn Tuesday before leaving on a campaign trip to Iowa, was asked about Kim Jong Namís spying, which was first reported by the Wall Street Journal.

ďI donít know, I have not heard about that,Ē the president said, before contradicting himself and assuring Kim Jong Un that his administration wouldnít do anything so underhanded.

21. And in every other state

Where they can find 5,000 mouth-breathers, and that includes the bluest of blue states, such as New York and California, even Hawaii.

I hope that was your point, and not a placist insult of Iowa, which is represented by three Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives and just one Republican, though that one is a nasty piece of work, for sure.

Unfortunately there are a large number of mouth breather Branch Trumpvidians who still kiss that fucker's ass and call it ice fucking cream.

The GOP in this state is in a race to turn this state in to North Alabama. I'm seriously considering leaving when I'm done with school.

11. Why not just share nuclear and long range missile technology with North Korea?

Send Jared over to visit Kim, just like with Saudi Arabia. Unless Trump's lying about being kept in the dark (and when isn't he lying?), now we know why the CIA and other intelligence agencies don't tell the traitorous POS anything.

13. on the same day it's revealed NK had 100s of public execution sites

The Transitional Justice Working Group interviewed 610 North Korean defectors over four years for its report.

It documented decades of killings, for offences ranging from stealing a cow to watching South Korean TV.

Public executions took place near rivers, fields, markets, schools, and sports grounds, the rights group said.

Crowds of 1,000 or more would gather to watch these executions, the NGO said in its report, "Mapping the fate of the dead", released on Tuesday.

The report alleges that family members of those sentenced to death, including children, were sometimes forced to watch the event. The bodies and burial locations of those killed were rarely given to their relatives.

The youngest person to witness a public killing was seven years old, according to testimony.

19. That's a high crime

And the American people now have more of a reason to run from him and the GOP. HE's showing who he really is, not for America for his policies and refusals to stand up to the bad guys in the world. He's protecting a murderer of his own people and a terrorist, instead of this country and its people. He's telling everyone what he is. This is a extreme National Security risk with him in office. Congress is irresponsible by letting him threaten our National Security almost daily now without ANY consequences.

23. Could people appear more guilty of crimes than these folks?

President Harding used to be the one held to the low standard?

Senator Turtle is definitely worthy of high scorn.

History will not be kind.

GREED at just shameful levels.

28. My guess is that he paid so little attention, what he came away with

was the idea that the CIA had whacked KJU's brother, and he was actually saying he wouldn't give an order for the CIA to do so. And he probably also thinks the CIA whacks people on a regular basis.

I really can't believe he'd be SO LAME as to actually say the US isn't going to spy on NK.
