Nikki Haley: U.S. Athletes Attending Winter Olympics is an ‘Open Question’ Because of North Korea Tensions

Nikki Haley hinted on Wednesday that America’s Olympic athletes might not participate in the 2018 Winter Olympics because of a potential volatile situation with North Korea. The Ambassador to the United Nations spoke to Martha MacCallum of Fox News tonight about the latest international developments pertaining to North Korea and President Donald Trump‘s announcement that the U.S. recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. MacCallum eventually brought up the forthcoming Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea, and she asked Haley whether the event will be safe for American athletes in light of the recent aggression from the rogue nation to the North. “I think those are conversations we are going to have to have, but what have we always said? We don’t ever fear anything, we live our lives,” said Haley. “What we will do is, we will make sure that we’re taking every precaution possible to make sure Continue reading "Nikki Haley: U.S. Athletes Attending Winter Olympics is an ‘Open Question’ Because of North Korea Tensions"

Chris Cuomo Chides Trump’s North Korea Rhetoric: ‘Went From Queens, New York to Queen of England’

CNN’s Chris Cuomo addressed President Donald Trump’s rhetoric on North Korea Wednesday morning, mocking the president for his milquetoast warnings against the rogue regime in response to their latest missile text. After North Korea launched an intercontinental ballistic missile that went higher than previously thought possible, Trump told reporters on Wednesday that “we will take care of it.” It was a far cry from Trump’s previous tone on North Korea’s military ambitions, which include threatening “fire and fury” and to “totally destroy” the country. On New Day, Cuomo found Continue reading "Chris Cuomo Chides Trump’s North Korea Rhetoric: ‘Went From Queens, New York to Queen of England’"

WATCH: North Korean Defector Braves Gunfire in Dramatic Bid for Freedom

A North Korean soldier was caught on video earlier this month when he made a desperate escape from the despotic regime. The United Nations Command released video this week showing a man in a military jeep speeding through checkpoints and heading for the Korean DMZ. The soldier made it to the border village of Panmunjom before crashing the vehicle and running away from border patrol agents who started opening fire. Reports indicate that the defector was shot multiple times as North Korean guards mobilized and tried to stop him. The man went down from his injuries, though South Korean security forces managed to drag him to safety and transport him to a medical center. While the defector’s condition is reportedly stable, doctors found that he was suffering from a serious parasitic infection as they mended his intestinal wounds. This indicates that North Koreans still suffer from humanitarian crises like malnutrition, Continue reading "WATCH: North Korean Defector Braves Gunfire in Dramatic Bid for Freedom"

Greg Gutfeld Rips ‘Humorless’ Critics of Trump’s Kim Jong Un Tweet

As The Five reviewed Donald Trump‘s diplomatic trip through Asia, Greg Gutfeld defended the president for flinging personal insults against Kim Jong Un on Twitter. Gutfeld declared that Trump’s tweet calling the North Korean dictator “short” and “fat” was his favorite part of the tour so far. He went on to bash the “humorless scolds” who have criticized Trump’s tweet, and he used an Animal House analogy to explain “the meltdown on the left”:
“I always talk about the Dean Wormer effect – that’s the head of the college in Animal House – He was humorless and mean. Those are always the Republican, and the liberals are always the people having fun. Trump has flipped this so now that whenever he does something, everybody acts like Dean Wormer. They’re absolutely apoplectic about a very funny tweet that actually lightened the tension. That was a joke that actually probably would Continue reading "Greg Gutfeld Rips ‘Humorless’ Critics of Trump’s Kim Jong Un Tweet"

CNN’s Dana Bash: Trump Insulting Kim Jong Un Like a ‘Third Grader’

Trump Mocks ‘Short and Fat’ Kim Jong Un, Announces China is ‘Upping’ DPRK Sanctions in Tweetstorm

In President Donald Trump’s Saturday night Twitter rant, he referred to Kim Jong Un as “short and fat,” attacked the “haters and fools” who question his coziness to Vladimir Putin, claimed China is “upping the sanctions” on North Korea — without providing evidence — and slammed Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama for their relationships with Russia. “Why would Kim Jong-un insult me by calling me “old,” when I would NEVER call him “short and fat?” Oh well, I try so hard to be his friend – and maybe someday that will happen!” Said the president — capping off his six part tweetstorm tonight.

Trump Pivots on Trade From ‘China is Raping Our Country’ to ‘I Don’t Blame China’

After spending the last two years declaring China is “raping” the United States’ economy, claiming the country’s modus operandi is to “Lie, Cheat & Steal in all international dealings,” and suggesting he alone could “win against China,” President Donald Trump has now changed his tune, reassuring the Chinese that he does not “blame” them for trade issues. During his first trip to China as president, Trump applauded the country’s market methods, saying, “I don’t blame China. After all, who can blame a country for being able to take advantage of another country for benefit of their citizens? I give China great credit.” Rather than using the same anti-Chinese Continue reading "Trump Pivots on Trade From ‘China is Raping Our Country’ to ‘I Don’t Blame China’"
