North Korea Says It Will Move Forward With Strike On Guam Waters

President Trump’s warning against continued military provocations from the North Korean government has fallen on deaf ears. According to U.S. press sources, the country’s state media is reporting to the Korean nation that their plan to fire four missiles towards Guam will be prepared for approval from Kim Jong Un within days.

North Korea has persisted in posturing about its technical capabilities by displaying missile launches that Washington fears may eventually prove capable of reaching U.S. soil for years. While Guam is situated closer towards the Asian Pacific than the U.S. mainland, it is by political standards, U.S. territory. North Korea has already upset the past several U.S. Presidents over its dramatic responses to the joint exercises the U.S. and South Korea execute off of its waters, as allies Japan and Taiwan sit dangerously close to the rogue state.

Kim Jong Un is allegedly planning launches that will send intermediate-range missiles over Japan so that they may come 18 to 25 miles within range of Guam’s coast. Such a missile would close a distance of around 1,850 miles.

Trump accidentally Revealed His Summer Vacation Plans

It looks like President Donald Trump will be headed out on vacation and away from the White House, yet again.

The FAA released a notice that restricts flights over Bedminster, NJ from August 4-21 due to “VIP movement.”

Axios noted that this is likely because Trump will be vacationing at his Trump National Golf Club in the town. Trump recently indicated he much prefers the golf club to the White House, which he reportedly called a “real dump.”

The FAA notice said aircraft within a certain “inner core” around Bedminster are prohibited except for “Approved law enforcement, military aircraft directly supporting the United States Secret Service (USSS) and the office of the President of the United States, approved air ambulance flights, and regularly scheduled commercial passenger and all-cargo carriers operating under one of the following TSA-Approved standard security programs/procedures.”

Axios also noted that Trump frequently complained about the length of his predecessor President Barack Obama’s vacations. August is a slow time for government officials and if the FAA notice is an indicator, Trump will be gone on vacation for as long as Obama was last year when he visited Martha’s Vineyard, Axios said.

Trump himself took to Twitter numerous times during Obama’s presidency to make his point.

Trump also complained about Obama spending time golfing or campaigning, though Trump has been golfing at least 43 times since he was inaugurated and has also held several campaign rallies for his 2020 reelection bid (though he has only been president for a little more than six months).
