Sarah Sanders: North Korean missile tests aren't 'bothering' Trump

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in an interview Sunday that recent missile tests by North Korea aren't "bothering" President Trump, despite concerns by some that they violated a United Nations resolution.

Asked by "Meet the Press" host Chuck Todd if Trump agrees with "the prime minister of Japan and his own national security advisor that North Korea has violated a U.N. resolution with these tests," Sanders responded: “Look, the president's focus in all of this process is on continuing the very good relationship that he has with Chairman Kim [Jong Un]. And he feels good that the chairman will stay firm with the commitment that he made to the president and move towards denuclearization"

"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.”

Her comment comes after national security adviser John Bolton said Saturday that short-range missile tests by North Korea earlier this month violated a U.N. Security Council resolution and argued that sanctions against the country must remain in place.

1. more...

“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.

In the interview on Sunday, Todd also pressed Sanders over the tweet's mention of Joe Biden, a 2020 Democratic presidential candidate, asking if people should be concerned that Trump "is essentially siding with a murderous authoritarian dictator over a former vice president in the United States?”

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."

4. Looks like a line was crossed and trump is acting like there was no line.

Bc he's bereft of any idea what to do about it. He stick his thumb in trumps eye and trump acts like nothing happened. Minimizing another missile test. Wow. trump hotels korea? he's in way over his head.
