Trump: That’s ‘Fake News’

(TheProudRepublic.com) – In yet another scandal involving the mainstream media and their never-ending persecution of Donald Trump, the former president has forcefully rejected a Politico report suggesting that if re-elected in 2024, he will shift his North Korea policy.

The report, based on anonymous sources, claims that Trump would ease his stance on North Korea’s denuclearization and consider a “freeze” in exchange for loosening sanctions.

Trump labeled this report as “Fake News,” accusing it of being a product of misinformation spread by Democrat operatives.

In a statement on his social media platform, Truth Social, Trump emphasized that the report was fabricated and aimed to mislead.

He acknowledged his good relationship with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un but categorically denied any softening of his views on North Korea’s nuclear weapons program.

Trump’s rebuttal comes amid claims by an anonymous source quoted by Politico, who suggested that Trump’s primary focus was securing a deal with North Korea without clear specifics on the nature of such a deal.

This contrasts with Trump’s assertion in April that his diplomatic efforts with North Korea helped avert a “nuclear holocaust.”

He has repeatedly emphasized the significance of his engagement with Kim Jong Un, including their historic meeting in 2019, which marked the first time a sitting U.S. president met with a North Korean dictator.

The former president recalled the initial tensions with North Korea and how they evolved into a willingness to engage in dialogue.

He expressed confidence that his administration would have successfully addressed the North Korean issue early in his second term had he been re-elected.

This ongoing discussion about Trump’s foreign policy approach, particularly towards North Korea, highlights the complexities of diplomatic negotiations and the diverse perspectives on how best to handle such sensitive international issues.

Trump’s dismissal of the Politico report as “Fake News” reflects his consistent stance against what he perceives as biased media reporting and misinformation.
