Sunday, CIA Director Mike Pompeo sat down on “Fox News Sunday” to discuss President Trump’s tough statements on North Korea and praised the Trump administration for their efforts in “uniting the world” as POTUS and company attempts to “denuclearize” the Korean Peninsula.
Director Pompeo stated that there is “no imminent intelligence indicating we’re on the cusp of a nuclear war,” which should come as a massive relief to great number of Americans and Guamanian-Americans that were fearing an impending attack from the Hermit Kingdom.
Pompeo added that:
“The President made clear to the North Korean regime how America will respond if certain actions are taken . . . We are hopeful that the leader of the country will understand [Trump’s remarks] in precisely the way they were intended, to permit him to get to a place where we can get the nuclear weapons off the peninsula . . . That’s the best message you can deliver to someone who is putting America at risk.”
The director also dismissed talk from those in previous administrations who suggested the Trump White House was surprised by a news report that North Korea now has a miniaturized nuclear warhead that can be put on an intercontinental ballistic missile that could hit the U.S.
“It doesn’t surprise me that those who came before us were surprised; they did nothing,” Pompeo said.
