President Trump’s National Security Adviser John Bolton on Monday pushed back on a New York Times report suggesting the U.S. may accept a “nuclear freeze” from North Korea in a new round of negotiations.
Bolton Said on Twitter:
I read this NYT story with curiosity. Neither the NSC staff nor I have discussed or heard of any desire to “settle for a nuclear freeze by NK.” This was a reprehensible attempt by someone to box in the President. There should be consequences. https://t.co/TTRPQkksza

The story was printed in the Times’s “News Analysis” section and claimed that in new negotiations with North Korea the U.S. may be willing to tacitly accept the country as a nuclear power.
That approach would enshrine the status quo, stopping North Korea’s nuclear arsenal from growing, but not requiring the dismantling of any weapons the rogue nation may currently have.
This is something the President many many times has said he will not do, saying that North Korea and Iran should never ever have nuclear weapons and that Kim and his country would see an immense wealth of they stop their pursuit of those weapons.
