Former Joint Chiefs of Staff Mike Mullen speaks out about the growing threat of North Korea’s nuclear program.
In direct violation of U.N. sanctions, new reports claim Russian tankers may have supplied fuel to North Korean tankers on at least three separate occasions. In a report published by Reuters Friday, Western European security sources said Russia has been providing an economic lifeline to the rogue state. The sources cited intelligence and satellite imagery to confirm the existence of ship to ship fuel trade between Russia and North Korea.
North Korea says it will not give up it’s nuclear agenda, unless the U.S. stops it’s ‘blackmail’. In a threat made by the isolated regime earlier this Saturday morning, state media said they will never give up their missile program until the U.S. and allies stop conducting war drills near North Korea. The dictatorship went on to say they had taken steps to boost their nuclear capabilities and self-defense.
As President Trump calls out China once again for potentially violating U.N. sanctions by providing oil to North Korea, satellite imaging suggests that the rogue regime is preparing for another ballistic missile test. Though China has been more compliant with sanctions on North Korea under the new administration, historically the country has been hesitant to act against it’s troublesome neighbor.
It’s no secret the president has an adversarial relationship with the mainstream media, but he says that will change when they start covering him fairly. One America’s Alex Salvi has more on the president’s latest sit-down with The New York Times.
