Trump Reverses Sanctions on North Korea after Treasury Announces Them

March 22, 2019 (EIRNS)—President Trump this afternoon reversed a set of sanctions which were imposed March 21 by the Treasury Department on China and North Korea.

Trump’s tweet, posted at 2:22 p.m. EDT, reads: “It was announced today [sic] by the U.S. Treasury that additional large scale Sanctions would be added to those already existing Sanctions on North Korea. I have today ordered the withdrawal of those additional Sanctions!”

AP reports that White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said that Trump “likes Chairman Kim and he doesn’t think these sanctions will be necessary.” National Security Advisor John Bolton had strongly endorsed the new sanctions.

The fake news media are hysterical. The “Failing New York Times” reported that Trump’s action is a “remarkable display of dissension within the Trump Administration and represented a striking case of a White House intervening to reverse a major national security decision made only hours earlier by the President’s own officials.”

The President is definitely on the move, as also shown by his exposure of John McCain’s criminal role in spreading the fake MI6 dossier to the FBI, “for very evil purposes.”
