On Wednesday, Fox News host Shepard Smith disputed President Donald Trump’s suggestion that the nuclear threat presented by the North Korean regime has been largely neutralized.
Following the summit in Singapore, President Trump made some questionable claims about his alleged diplomatic victory.
“There’s no longer a nuclear threat from North Korea. Meeting with Kim Jong-un was an interesting and very positive experience. North Korea has great potential for the future,” the President said.
Smith begged to differ.
“Well, obviously part of that is not right. The nuke threat is very real. The joint statement both President Trump and dictator Kim Jong-un signed yesterday failed to lay out how North Korea will give up their nukes,” he said.
“Or how the U.S. and its allies will check to make sure that North Korea is keeping up its end of the bargain. The North Koreans haven’t admitted what they have, much less when and how they’ll supposedly get rid of them. A clear reading of the facts indicate the president made concessions in return for nothing concrete.”
Jared Kushner sparking ‘confusion’ by routing COVID-19 response through Trump’s ‘corporate allies’: WaPo reporter
Reporter Robert Costa revealed that Jared Kushner has been coordinating the distribution of medical supplies with Republican donors.
The Washington Post national political reporter said President Donald Trump's son-in-law has sparked confusion in those efforts by placing himself in the chain of command, and both Kushner and trade adviser Peter Navarro were contradicting advice from White House medical experts.
"When you ask about the inner circle, it is clear to me," Costa told MSNBC's "Morning Joe," "based on my reporting, that Peter Navarro, more than anyone now, whether it's on urging the president to take a position that's different than Dr. [Anthony] Fauci, or when it comes to the Defense Production Act, nudging corporations, sometimes pushing corporations to do what the White House wants, that Navarro is at the center."
‘Don’t you dare!’ CNN’s John Berman rains hell on Trump official Peter Navarro for suggesting he wants people to die
CNN's John Berman on Monday got into a heated exchange with Trump trade adviser Peter Navarro after he questioned whether Berman actually wanted to see people recover from being infected with COVID-19.
Toward the end of a lengthy interview about the potential merits of treating COVID-19 with anti-malarial drug hydroxychloroquine, Berman told Navarro that "we all want the same thing, which is people to get better."
"I'm not sure we do sometimes," Navarro replied.
"What are you talking about?" Berman asked.
At this point, Navarro fumbled around trying to explain himself, but Berman called him out on it.
Furious Morning Joe goes off on ‘reckless’ Trump in shouting tirade
MSNBC's Joe Scarborough went off on a shouting rant against President Donald Trump's bungled response to the coronavirus outbreak that has killed thousands and shut down the U.S. economy indefinitely.
The "Morning Joe" host lamented that Trump and his administration wasted crucial weeks of preparation that eroded any advantages the United States could have had in fighting the pandemic, and he said the president was still failing his test of leadership.
