RUSH: The Trump White House not even thinking about slowing down over the Thanksgiving holiday. Sarah Huckabee Sanders just tweeted that North Korea has been placed on our list of state sponsors of terrorism. She writes, I would like to remind Kim Jong-un that as of November 8th, 2016, the United States ended its policy of sending the countries on that list pallets of cash.
Ho-ho-ho! Do you know what thats about? Tell me. Whats that about? (interruption) Exactly right. Obama sent pallets of cash, unmarked cash, in military turboprop jets, pallets of cash to the Iranians in order to free some American hostages the Iranian mullahs were holding! It was also part of the Iran nuke deal. The regime, Obama Regime denied this, of course.
But I love this. Sarah Huckabee Sanders would like to remind Kim Jong-un that as of November 8th, 2016 thats when Trump was elected America has ended its policy of sending the countries on the state sponsors of terrorism list pallets of cash. Here is Trump himself today at the White House during a cabinet meeting.
THE PRESIDENT: Today in the United States is designating North Korea as a state sponsor of terrorism. Should have happened a long time ago. Should have happened years ago. In addition to threatening the world by nuclear devastation, North Korea has repeatedly supported acts of international terrorism, including assassinations on foreign soil.
RUSH: Whoa! Folks, this is not in the sexual harassment wheelhouse and all that, but this is big. This is America standing strong. This is America leading, this is what it looks like. And its gonna make liberal snowflakes very nervous. Its going to frighten them. Its gonna make them feel offended and scared and make them think that Kim Jong-un might rightfully attack us because Donald Trump is provoking him!
You know theres actually a story thats been lurking out there for a while, is Trump suited, is Trump qualified to be able to launch nuclear weapons? Should we deny Trump the right. And then somebody had to say, Sorry. Theres nothing you can do about it. Hes president. We actually had some military people joining this cause that Trump is unsuited for nuclear launch code responsibility.
From what I remember Obama just gave them the money.
Had nothing to do with American hostages. The hostages had to stay in Iran at that point.
