President Trump said today that the United States has been paying “extortion money” to North Korea for the last 25 years. Obama and George W. Bush and Bill Clinton are all part of this massive failure.
“The U.S. has been talking to North Korea, and paying them extortion money, for 25 years,” Trump tweeted.
“Talking is not the answer!”

Trump’s tweet comes right after the Pentagon confirmation that North Korea launched a missile that flew over Japan’s airspace. It was a concrete signal to the Trump administration that North Korea won’t back down.
Trump isn’t afraid of North Korea and even warned that their threats would be met with “fire and fury.”
North Korea, in response, threatened to fire a missile into Guam earlier in August. According to North Korea media, its latest missile launch over Japan is a “prelude” to an attack on Guam.
Bill Clinton couldn’t handle the problem.
Speech by Bill Clinton on 21 October 1994 on how the world is a safer place based on the “good deal” with North Korea, preventing it from obtaining nuclear weapons. On October 9, 2006, North Korea announced that it had successfully conducted its first nuclear test.
Trump is correct. Our past few presidents have been giving extortion money to the North Korean government. This must stop.
Share this on Twitter and Facebook if you support Trump’s fight against the bullies in North Korea. We will never back down!
