Experts credit Donald Trump for the success of North Korea’s missile program.

People complaining that Trump has not accomplished a single thing while in office.

Yes he did, see?

Courtesy of NYT:

As North Korea fired off a series of missiles in recent months — at least 18 since May — President Trump has repeatedly dismissed their importance as short-range and “very standard” tests. And although he has conceded “there may be a United Nations violation,” the president says any concerns are overblown.

Kim Jong-un, North Korea’s leader, Mr. Trump explained recently, just “likes testing missiles.”

Now, American intelligence officials and outside experts have come to a far different conclusion: that the launchings downplayed by Mr. Trump, including two late last month, have allowed Mr. Kim to test missiles with greater range and maneuverability that could overwhelm American defenses in the region.

Japan’s defense minister, Takeshi Iwaya, told reporters in Tokyo last week that the irregular trajectories of the most recent tests were more evidence of a program designed to defeat the defenses Japan has deployed, with American technology, at sea and on shore.

Mr. Kim’s flattery of Mr. Trump with beguiling letters and episodic meetings offering vague assurances of eventual nuclear disarmament, some outside experts say, are part of what they call the North Korean leader’s strategy of buying time to improve his arsenal despite all the sanctions on North Korea.

The rapid improvements in the short-range missiles not only put Japan and South Korea in increased danger, but also threaten at least eight American bases in those countries housing more than 30,000 troops, according to an analysis of the missile ranges by The New York Times. Such missiles, experts say, could be designed to carry either conventional or nuclear warheads.

So Trump has been asleep at the wheel while North Korea developed the technology to attack bases occupied by American soldiers. 

But hey, at least he got some nice letters out of it. 

Pundits and experts did not hold back in their condemnation of Trump’s failure to recognize the threat posed by these missile tests.

I can’t believe I am saying this but I think I prefer the Republican presidents who were super susicious of places like North Korea and Russia.

At the very least their paranoia meant that nobody pulled any sneaky shit on America during their watch.

    No doubt Warren has a plan for this. Just throw 3 trillion dollars at Kim and problem solved.

    Balash told the Post he is joining the Papua New Guinea-based company Oil Search
    Balash had been one of the Trump administration’s biggest advocates for drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, a portion of which Congress voted to open for oil development under the
    Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017.

    I don’t believe for one minute that Kim sent any ‘beautiful letters” to little donnie. trump is too vain, if he really had received a letter, he would have shown it to the press, not wave around an empty envelope.

    Also when little donnie says, maybe I’ll show it to you soon, he has got nothing to show. same with I’ll show you my tax returns, when you see my financials, we will be releasing melanomia’s immigration papers. It is all smoke and mirrors.
