Promptly at noon yesterday, on time and according to schedule, President Donald Trump took the oath of office, promising to “protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”
Within minutes of Trump taking office, the White House website announced that the “Trump Administration will pursue the highest level of military readiness. President Trump will end the defense sequester and submit a new budget to Congress outlining a plan to rebuild our military.”
“We will provide our military leaders with the means to plan for our future defense needs. We will also develop a state-of-the-art missile defense system to protect against missile-based attacks from states like Iran and North Korea,” the website announced.
For too long, allied nations have watched and worried as Kim Jong Un brutalized his own people while issuing insane threats to the U.S. and building nuclear capabilities to make those threats more credible. Trump has not only refused to play his game; he has making it clear that America will now make the rules.
With improved missile capabilities, an increasingly dangerous foreign policy, and a clearly unstable leader, North Korea has been a ticking-time-bomb trifecta.
In his annual New Year’s Day speech, Kim spoke proudly of the strides he said his country had made in its nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs. He said North Korea would continue to bolster its weapons programs as long as the United States remained hostile and continued its joint military exercises with South Korea, according to The New York Times.
“We have reached the final stage in preparations to test-launch an intercontinental ballistic missile,” he said. The claims of ICBM readiness appeared to be credible, according to Reuters, and a test launch could be imminent.
Sources said they have detected two missiles, presumed to be prototype ICBMs, on mobile launchers poised for test firing in the near future, according to the U.K. Express.
Although former President Barack Obama was unwilling to increase our missile defense strategy for fear of upsetting Russia, our strong new president has no such qualms.
When he says, “America First,” he means it.
