US Senator: Trump is Being Played by North Korea

Posted July 24, 2018

North Korea has begun dismantling the facilities at the satellite launch station in Sohae, according to an analysis of commercial satellite imagery released on the 38 North website.

North Korea has carried out a total of six nuclear tests, the most recent of which took place in September previous year.

Both Trump and his secretary of state, Mike Pompeo, have been urging patience since the President held a historic summit with Kim in Singapore last month but the President has privately expressed frustration over the perceived lack of progress in talks, a USA official told CNN.

U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham says that President Donald Trump is being "played" by North Korea and China is pulling Pyongyang back from negotiations with the U.S.

"Simply a photograph, of Kim with Trump, by the flag of the United States, is a major propaganda boost for the Kim regime", King said.

This was in response to a question about Israel demanding a pullout of all Iranians from Syria. The two countries support President Bashar al-Assad's forces in the Syrian civil war.

Last week, Trump said there was "no rush" and "no time limit" on denuclearization negotiations.

Both Pompeo and Trump have argued there is no daylight between the two governments' positions on Pyongyang's nukes.

The president also called the rights issues a "rough situation over there" and said he was ready to "write a new chapter between our nations".

Ending the Korean War was also a key element of the Panmunjom Declaration agreed earlier this year by Kim and South Korean President Moon Jae-in.

"Trump really tried to show the people of North Korea there is an alternative than having the rhetoric and the threats", Scholte said, adding Trump was signaling to the North Korean leader he needs to "open up and improve and that he can't do that unless he cooperates with the United States".

He wants it to strengthen the right to an abortion, a seemingly unlikely event in the Republican-led chamber. Wade eventually reversed. "The kind of cases that will come up will probably be like that", said Russell.

In May, the women's manager at the restaurant where they worked claimed he tricked them into doing so on behalf of South Korea's spy agency, the National Intelligence Service (NIS).

On Twitter, 38 North's founder, Joel Wit, said the images suggested that North Korea may be willing to "give up its space launch programme".

"Restart [U.S. -South Korean] military exercises and put on the table removing our dependents from South Korea as a real, stern warning to North Korea of what happens if they play you".

The Washington Post reported last weekend that Trump, who had said last month that North Korea's nuclear problem was "largely solved", was now privately expressing concern about a lack of progress on the issue. "It is ridiculous to trumpet about the "pain of separated families" while keeping the new "separated families" deliberately created due to the inhumane act of the former conservative regime and while shunning the strong appeal of the (restaurant workers' families)".
