“Some of the activity that’s taken place, as you can see from the president’s Twitter isn’t something that’s bothering the president,” Sanders continued on NBC. “He still feels good about the relationship that he has and about Chairman Kim’s commitment that he made to the president.”
“U.N. Security Council resolutions prohibit North Korea from firing any ballistic missiles,” Bolton told reporters in Tokyo ahead of Trump’s arrival. “In terms of violating U.N. Security Council resolutions, there is no doubt about that.”
Trump, however, has not expressed much concern about the recent tests — which come after denuclearization talks at the most recent summit between the president and the North Korean leader collapsed. On Saturday, Trump said he has confidence in Kim.
“I have confidence that Chairman Kim will keep his promise to me, & also smiled when he called Swampman Joe Bidan a low IQ individual, & worse. Perhaps that’s sending me a signal?” Trump tweeted.
Sanders denied that Trump was siding with Kim on “that” but that the two leaders “agree in their assessment of former Vice President Joe Biden.”
“Chuck, the president’s not siding with that. But I think they agree in their assessment of former Vice President Joe Biden,” Sanders said. “Again, the president’s focus in this process is the relationship he has and making sure we continue on the path towards denuclearization.”
