Trump complies with North Korean DEMAND in order to keep meeting on schedule…

This report is very confusing – it seems like Trump caved to a Nork demand in order to keep their historic meeting on schedule, but they are not admitting it.

From CNBC:

A training exercise involving U.S. B-52 bombers flying alongside South Korean warplanes was canceled following threats that Pyongyang would withdraw from a highly anticipated summit with President Donald Trump next month, The Wall Street Journal reported, citing U.S. officials.

According to Friday’s report, the officials said South Korea had asked to not participate in an air drill that also involved Japan and the U.S.

The White House referred CNBC’s request for comment about the Journal report to the Pentagon, which said plans for a separate exercise is continuing as planned.

The news came a day after the Defense Department said the U.S. had no plans to scale back the exercises.

Now this goes along with what Trump did to John Bolton after the Norks specifically cited his comments in their angry statement threatening to pull out of their talks. But, as with most things, they’re denying that they changed anything:

When asked if the U.S. Air Force B-52 Stratofortress, a long-range bomber capable of deploying nuclear weapons, was leaving the exercises, chief Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White said Thursday that thescope of the exercises has not changed.

Unfortunately, the administration isn’t known for its strict faithfulness to accuracy or transparency, so it may be that the media is lying or exaggerating, or Trump is…
