President Trump appeared Sunday on 60 minutes in a wide-ranging interview with Lesley Stahl. Stahl tried to stump the President on various topics around North Korea. Stahl asked if Trump would be lowering sanctions on North Korea.
The press has their panties in a wad about Trump saying he has a good relationship with Kim Jong Un and saying at one time he loves Kim. Because of the good results from North Korea including returning hostages, remains and not firing any missiles Stahl asked about lowering sanctions.
Stalhl began badgering the President about reports of North Korea building more missiles.
President Donald Trump: Let’s say the answer is yes, okay? In the meantime, they haven’t tested a missile. They haven’t tested a rocket. They definitely haven’t done a nuclear test because you know about them real fast. It sort of moves the earth. And we have a relationship now.
Lesley Stahl: One of the things that Kim has asked for is for you to ease the sanctions.
President Donald Trump: We haven’t done that.
Lesley Stahl: Are you prepared to do that? What– what does he have to do–
President Donald Trump: No, No. I–
Lesley Stahl: Before you’re–
President Donald Trump: No I’m not doing it. This isn’t the Obama administration. I haven’t eased the sanctions. I haven’t done anything. I haven’t done anything. We’re meeting. I believe he likes me. I like him. We have a good relationship. It’s very important.
President Trump was referring to Obama and his Secretary of States John Kerry and Crooked Hillary. Their propensity to of lowering sanctions and giving before getting something in foreign relations. The President may also have been referring to the Obama administration sending Iran billions of dollars in cash for hostage release and other negotiations.
It is clear the Trump administration is not the Obama administration. Obama hated the United States and had a love for Muslim countries perhaps like no other American President. President Trump pointed it out once again.
