John Bolton, O’Brien’s predecessor as nationwide security consultant, just recently informed Axios the administration is bluffing about stopping North Korea’s nuclear aspirations and must prepare to make a public admission its policy stopped working terribly.
O’Brien stated he stays confident about Kim’s choice — up until now — to avoid releasing a nuclear test throughout the Christmas and New Year timeframe.
Kim “guaranteed to send out a Christmas present. The president recommended he send him a vase. We didn’t get a vase or any other sort of Christmas present. That seems favorable,” O’ Brien informed Axios .
“All we understand is we were informed we were going to get a Christmas present and the Christmas present didn’t come. Therefore I believe that was a motivating indication. Once again, that does not imply we will not see some sort of test in the future,” O’Brien included.
