Evidence Emerges That North Korea Is Again Using A Nuclear Reactor That Was Shuttered During Trump Presidency


Evidence has emerged that Kim Jong Un’s North Korean regime is again using its Yongbyon nuclear reactor that produces plutonium, according to the United Nation’s atomic agency. That reactor became non-operational during President Donald Trump’s presidency, when Trump took a hardline stance against North Korea and gained concessions from Jong Un (whom he called “Little Rocket Man”) while avoiding nuclear war. But the North Koreans clearly do not have the same respect for Biden’s regime that they showed to President Trump, and now “Sleepy Joe” Biden is presiding over another potential crisis.

The Wall Street Journal reports: “North Korea appears to have resumed operation of its plutonium-producing reactor at Yongbyon in a move that could enable the reclusive country to expand its nuclear-weapons arsenal, the U.N. atomic agency said. The development, disclosed in the agency’s annual report on North Korea’s nuclear activities…The Yongbyon reactor appeared to have been inactive from December 2018 until the beginning of July 2021, the report noted. It added that signs that the reactor is now being operated coincide with indications that North Korea is also using a nearby laboratory to separate plutonium from spent fuel previously removed from the reactor.” (Wall Street Journal passage concludes)

Meanwhile, as NATIONAL FILE’s Andrew White reported: “During an event in which Joe Biden presided over the bodies of fallen US Marines during the dignified transfer ceremony at Dover Air Force Base, the President appeared to check his watch, drawing national outrage as many viewed the move as inconsiderate and selfish given the circumstance and setting. In the middle of a dignified transfer ceremony for the fallen US Marines that were recently killed in Afghanistan, Joe Biden appeared to check the time on his wrist watch, drawing outrage from many who viewed the move as incentive, inconsiderate, and selfish.”
