North Korea Has Launched Two Projectiles, Despite Promises To Trump Not To Continue

North Korea launched at least two “unidentified projectiles” early Thursday morning, South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff said. This despite Trump saying how much he loves his boyfriend Kim.

The projectiles reportedly flew around 267 miles and were fired from the Wonsan area on North Korea’s eastern coast.

“Our military, in preparation for additional launches, is maintaining (its) readiness posture by monitoring related movements,” an official in the South Korean Joint Chiefs of Staff office told CNN.

This is the first projectile the country has fired since May when North Korea tested short-range missiles and other rockets.

President Trump became the first sitting U.S. president to step into North Korean territory when he crossed the demilitarized zone into the country on June 30.

Trump first met with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to negotiate the country’s denuclearization on June 12, 2018.


Earlier this year, a second summit between Trump and Kim broke down over “excessive North Korean demands” for sanctions relief in exchange for surrendering part of its nuclear capabilities.
