Trump on Reports of North Korea Rebuilding Missile Launch Site: ‘Very Disappointed’ If That’s Happening

On Wednesday, President Donald Trump expressed disappointment over the reports that North Korea is rebuilding one of their key missile launch facilities.

As Trump took questions in the Oval Office, a reporter asked him about the activity picked up around Tongchang-ri, a launchpad and engine testing site that the North Koreans claim is used for space exploration.

Trump’s response:

“It’s too early to see. We’ll see. We have to solve a problem. We have a very nasty problem. We have to solve a problem. The relationship is good. I would be very disappointed if that were happening. It’s a very early report. We’re the ones that put it out. I would be very very disappointed in Chairman Kim. I don’t think I will be, but we’ll see what happens. It will ultimately get solved.”

The news comes after Trump and Kim Jong Un failed to reach an agreement during their denuclearization summit last week in Vietnam. Trump had a press conference after talks were over, during which he took Kim at his word about having no knowledge of how Otto Warmbier was treated, and that North Korea won’t do any more missile or nuclear tests.
