Left Throws a Fit Over Trump's "Big Button" Comment, SK Says It Worked


Earlier this month, North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un taunted the United States in a New Year’s speech, claiming he had a “nuclear button” on his desk and was ready to use it at any moment.

Then President Donald Trump responded:

Of course, liberals threw a fit over the comment.

But this kind of tough rhetoric isn’t just an off-the-cuff comment. It’s intentional pressure that is working against North Korea. When someone is threatening you and your people, they need to realize that you aren’t going to back down, especially when the person doing the threatening is a murderous dictator.

Now, even South Korea’s president has admitted Trump’s strategy is working.

“North Korea agreed on Tuesday to send a delegation to next month’s Winter Olympics, which are set to begin next month in Pyeongchang, South Korea. The rival nations’ talks are the first sign of a possible thaw in their relationship,” Fox News reported.

Do you approve of how President Trump is handling North Korea?

This is the first time in two years that talks between Seoul and Pyongyang have occurred, and South Korean President Moon Jae-in said that President Trump deserves “big credit” for it.

South Korea’s Special Adviser for Foreign Affairs and National Security, Chung-in Moon agreed. “I agree 100 percent. Were it not for President Trump’s pressures, North Korea would not have come to South Korea. President Trump deserves credit,” he said.

He also said that despite the tough rhetoric from North Korea, they are “desperate” to have talks with the U.S. The only way that will happen is through South Korea. “North Korea is desperate to have talks with the U.S., but there are communication difficulties. What was the choice? You can go to Washington through South Korea,” he said.

Additionally, the adviser said that he would keep the tough line established by the United States. “South Korea will go in tandem with the United States in dealing with North Korea,” he explained.

And that’s really good news. Trump has kept up the pressure on North Korea by sanctions and by tough rhetoric. And it’s the same tough rhetoric that has been driving liberals crazy since Trump joined the campaign trail.

As South Korea’s president said, these pressures are working, despite the backlash from liberals. The combination of tough rhetoric, showcasing our military superiority, and sanctions have put enough pressure to get North Korea to come to the table.

Finally we now have a president who doesn’t go around the world apologizing for America like Obama did. Instead, we have one who will do whatever it takes to defend the lives and liberty of his fellow Americans.
