The concerted campaign by numerous mainstream media outlets to undermine US President Donald Trump appears to make the president’s point for him. He has long warned about the inherent left leaning bias that runs through the majority of dominant US newspapers and television media.
It’s not unusual in the US for former intelligence officers and other high ranking officials to keep their top level security clearance after leaving office. But Trump has revoked the security clearance of Obama-era CIA director John Brennan.
That status quo has seen the West facing off against nuclear armed arch enemy Russia for more than 60 years. Not to mention North Korea, and the enemy you have to have…Iran.
Trump, speaking during a joint press conference with Italy’s Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte, said he would meet with the Iranians ‘anytime they want to’. ‘I’ll meet with anybody,’ he said.
But in yet another sign that the historic summit was anything but a failure, North Korea has transferred 55 small, flag-draped cases carrying the suspected remains of US soldiers killed in the Korean War.
The White House has threatened to strip six former officials of their security clearances as Trump considers striking back at critics of his meeting with Putin.
