Trump: North Korea is a State Sponsor of Terror

“Should’ve happened a long time ago, should have happened years ago.” – President Donald J. Trump

Using some of the strongest language he has against the brutal and intolerable regime of Kim Jong-Un, President Trump declared his intention to designate North Korea as a state sponsor of terrorism on Monday.

The basis for the US government’s move were repeated threats from Pyongyang to engage in nuclear warfare and the killing of North Korean leader’s estranged half brother in a Malaysian airport in February.

Some inside the administration disputed whether or not North Korea met the criteria to be considered as a state sponsor of terrorism. By legal definition, there needed to be more than one act of terrorism to earn the designation. There was said to be disagreement over whether the brutal and abusive treatment of American student Otto Warmbier, who died of injuries suffered in North Korean custody, constituted terrorism.
