Trump: South Korea agreed to pay U.S. more to defend from North Korea
No facts and figures, of course, and no confirmation from South Korea. We don't know whether or not Trump is once again spouting nonsense.President Donald Trump on Wednesday announced South Korea “has agreed to pay substantially more money” to the U.S. government “to defend itself” from Kim Jong Un’s regime in North Korea, which harbors nuclear ambitions and has escalated regional tensions with a series of recent missile launches.
And one must wonder why it's necessary to protect SK from the smart Kim who will do the right thing. Surely, we can trust such a leader.The South Korean Embassy in Washington did not immediately return an email seeking confirmation of the payment agreement announced by Trump.
“Chariman Kim has a great and beautiful vision for his country, and only the United States, with me as President, can make that vision come true,” Trump wrote online. “He will do the right thing because he is far too smart not to, and he does not want to disappoint his friend, President Trump!”
