Trump: South Korea agreed to pay U.S. more to defend from North Korea

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.
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.

The South Korean Embassy in Washington did not immediately return an email seeking confirmation of the payment agreement announced by Trump.
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.

“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!”

If they want our troops there then they need to be paying the majority of the share.

It has nothing to do with NK invading it has to do with SK being afraid and relying on us.

It's funny, the left bitches that we need to cut the military but when it's suggested by Trump we pull our troops out they start whining like little girls that we can't.

Then they hate Trump for actually making others pay to have us protect them.

Talk about hypocrites man.

Oh and not only do they want us to flip the bill but they also want to keep those unfair trade practices going so we get screwed over even more.

How much is Israel paying us to protect them from all those nasty A-rabs?

So, we do not have a DEFENSE DEPARTMENT but rather a Protection-For- Pay- Department?

The issue is not whether or not SK should pay for their own protection.

The issues is whether or not Trump is telling the truth as to whether they have agreed to do so.

The other issues is NK and its leader. Trump trusts Kim. Should he?

You're saying they SHOULD pay more.

Which is fine.

He's saying they AGREED to pay more.

Which is a bald faced lie.

A pure, straight up, lie. To your face. Right to your face.

Go ahead and take it if you want. Most people I know have some self respect.

They paid 850 million in 2018 and are going to pay 924 million this year, that is already agreed to.

How is that not paying more in your eyes?

You have no idea what Trump thinks of Kim, he is our top diplomat so may simply be playing him.

You take everything the left wing media shoves down your throat as the gospel truth and that is sad.
