    The hilarity continues!

    AP FACT CHECK: Trump bobbles facts on NKorea history, nukes

    Oh that silly Trump...making up stuff just to hear himself talk or type...whadda guy! What a leader! In his mind he is the only person who ever did anything...ever. If it weren't for him Earth wouldn't spin.

    THE FACTS: The five-hour nuclear summit gave the two leaders an opportunity to express optimism and make a show of their new relationship. But it didn’t nail down how and when the North might denuclearize, or the nature of the unspecified “protections” Trump pledged to Kim and his government. Trump has insisted that strong verification of denuclearization would be included in a final agreement that his team would sort out with the North Koreans later.

    Trump is also wrong to say there was an assumption before he took office that the United States would go to war. President Barack Obama had used sanctions to no avail to try to halt North Korea’s nuclear program. But it wasn’t until after Trump took office that North Korea’s testing of an intercontinental ballistic missile and rhetoric between the two leaders ramped up talk of war. Fears of conflict were particularly acute after Trump dubbed Kim “Rocket Man” and Kim vowed to “tame the mentally deranged U.S. dotard with fire.”
    THE FACTS: He’s wrong in suggesting his administration is the first to start on denuclearization with North Korea. The Bill Clinton and George W. Bush administrations both did so.
    THE FACTS: His numbers are incorrect. The Clinton administration, which he calls a “regime,” and the Bush administration combined provided some $1.3 billion in assistance from 1995 to 2008, says the Congressional Research Service, a nonpartisan arm of Congress. Slightly more than half was for food aid and 40 percent for energy assistance.

    He’s also wrong in saying “nothing happened” in return. North Korea stopped producing plutonium for eight years under the 1994 agreement. Just how much was achieved, though, is in question, because of the suspicions that emerged later that North Korea had been secretly seeking to enrich uranium.

    Trans needs to find a hobby (besides trolling the internet and having a meltdown every day over President Trump).

    Try fishing - Monello finds it very relaxing.

    AP Fact Checking OPINION Articles

    We’re tempted to suggest a conspiracy here — but it’s just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply can’t conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.

    It should be clear to anyone above a 2nd grade reading level that that is an opinion piece and NOT a fact-check.

    It should also be clear by now that AP is agenda-driven and not unbiased straight news.

    What was incorrect, fact-wise, in the article? Just curious.
