Bolton: North Korea ‘Has Not Taken The Steps’ To Denuclearize


White House national security adviser John Bolton said Tuesday that North Korea has not made progress toward denuclearization, a stark assessment of President Trump’s efforts to secure a nuclear agreement with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

“The United States has lived up to the Singapore declaration,” Bolton said in an interview on Fox News, referring to the framework Trump and Kim agreed to during their summit in June. “It’s just North Korea that has not taken the steps we feel are necessary to denuclearize.”

Bolton said the U.S. will not lift economic penalties on North Korea until the country shows greater progress toward disassembling its nuclear and ballistic missile programs.

  1. North Korea denuclearizing is a pipe dream. They will never, ever do so. They will lie about it – they have done that repeatedly over the last few decades – but they realize the only bargaining chip they have on the world stage is their nukes.

    • Your only proof is Fake News who are refusing to give President Trump any credit for it. Don’t you see it with your own eyes yet how they’re lying through their teeth all day long and never ever said anything positive about America’s First Real President? Just because he father and grandfather didn’t doesn’t mean he won’t. Actually, according to Real News they ARE denuclearizing.

      • “…America’s First Real President…”
        Back in 2008 some Democrats were so in the thrall of President-Elect Obama that the mocking reference “Obamessiah” was created.
        Fortunately, Republicans are much more level-headed, right?

        • Logically, if the last few Presidents stole the presidency by fraud (there are loads of evidence to confirm this) (and Obama and Bush I were not even born in the US) doesn’t it make Trump for the first real President of the US? Whatever it is, he’s definitely the first true leader of the US in 100 years or more. You can’t deny that.
