President Donald Trump continues to show he’s losing touch reality. Last week, White House insiders said “he seemed to go crazy,” when he claimed that President Andrew Jackson could have stopped the Civil War. (Johnson died 16 years before the war started.) Now the Business Standard News has received information Trump has made bizarre statements about assassinating the leader of North Korea, Kim Jong-un.
According to a White House leaker, Trump was frustrated the CIA didn’t have a “Jason Bourne” type assassin who could sneak into any country and kill the leader, while operating off the books. (Jason Bourne is the fictional amnesiac spy played by Matt Damon in a series of action movies.)
Bloomberg also reported Trump flew into a rage when National Security Advisor Gen. H.R. McMaster contradicted him on South Korean’ defense issues.
“Trump was livid, according to three White House officials, after reading in the Wall Street Journal that McMaster had called his South Korean counterpart to assure him that the president’s threat to make that country pay for a new missile defense system was not official policy,” said Bloomberg’s Eli Lake. “These officials say Trump screamed at McMaster on a phone call, accusing him of undercutting efforts to get South Korea to pay its fair share.”
