Rehearsal for any military action with the US and South Korea doesn't Kenneth Freeman at the cost saving issue that the US would save a lot of money. The beaches we paid to have key portion of the bill factory doesn't ship them. In. I guess the president also said that the sanctions stay in place in the short term arm. Any talk of aids specifically for the North Korean people are movement on those types of issues. And I yet I think they're leading to even if verifiable portion of this commitment by Kim Jong it's. Present did say he talked about human rights with the North Korean leader but they wanna talk more about that issue. In the future they used pressed on how he could say that you know in the very talented given that he's been accused of ordering the killings of the family members that he's the descendant of presidents didn't back down he says he's talented he takeover situation after his father passes away.
