In South Korea, Trump Threatens War, Promotes NJ Golf Course

HeadlineNov 08, 2017

President Trump told assembled leaders of South Korea’s government Tuesday that the United States stands ready to attack North Korea over its nuclear weapons program. Trump made the threat in a speech to South Korea’s National Assembly, in which he blasted North Korea over its human rights violations.

President Donald Trump: “The time for excuses is over. Now is the time for strength. If you want peace, you must stand strong at all times.”

To the shock of many, Trump also used his speech to promote his golf course in Bedminster, New Jersey, and he pressed South Korea to purchase billions of dollars in U.S. weapons. Trump’s South Korea trip continued to draw protesters, including hundreds who gathered as Trump toured the U.S. Army base Camp Humphreys.

Lee Eun-woo: “We do not want Trump to visit South Korea, because he keeps on talking about war in the Korean Peninsula and putting pressure on commerce and forcing weapons trading. How can we welcome someone like this to Pyeongtaek and South Korea?”

Earlier today, Trump arrived in Beijing for talks with Chinese President Xi Jinping, ahead of planned stops in Vietnam and the Philippines.
