John Kirby: N. Korea Missile Launches a ‘Big Middle Finger’ to the Trump Admin
KIRBY: "This test is a big middle finger right to the administration and that whole charm offensive that they were on there in terms of trying to woo Kim Jong-un and pat him on the head and say good boy when you haven’t reacted too sharply to anything in the past. Look, this isn’t just about messaging, Pamela. This is about capability. Every time he fires off a missile, whether it’s a ballistic missile or not, he learns, he perfects, he improves his program. This program to him is the ultimate insurance policy. That’s really what he is doing."
