The liberal media is struggling to give President Donald Trump credit for forcing the North Korean regime into making extreme concessions.
During the press briefing on Friday, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders blanked CNN White House correspondent Jeff Zeleny when he questioned how Trump will lead the meeting with North Korea.
“How will the president and the United States be able to verify this before the meeting?” Zeleny pompously asked Sanders. “How will they be able to verify the denuclearization?
“That is something that will be determined through the national security and intelligence community,” Sanders responded. “Certainly not something that I would read out to you guys from here.”
“I think it is really clear that they misplayed it or we wouldn’t be in the position that we are in,” she added, reminding the media Trump is accomplishing a task the Obama administration failed at.
She also reminded CNN that Trump is surrounded by top military generals and experts, which will play a big role in the negotiations.
The president wouldn’t be having to clean up the mistakes of the previous three administrations. The president is getting promises out of North Korea that haven’t been made in any recent years. And again, we are going to continue the maximum pressure campaign to make sure that they follow through on these commitments,” Sanders said.
“The president has an incredible team surrounding him both from national security advisers, secretary of defense, secretary of state, the intelligence community,” she added. “But at the end of the day, the ultimate person to lead that negotiation or that conversation and be at the table will be the president.”
Sanders was referring to Trump announcing on Thursday that he would meet with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un by May.
Through the South Koreans, the North Korean regime said it would be willing to make major concessions in order to have a face-to-face meeting with Trump.
North Korea agreed to denuclearize its program and end all missile tests to have the meeting, which was made possible by the crippling sanctions the U.S. has imposed on the regime.
Trump deserves an enormous amount of credit for getting North Korea to the negotiating table without the U.S. giving up anything in return.
CNN should think twice before questioning Trump and trying to mess with Sanders again.
