Yesterday ahead of President Trump's meeting with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, NBC News reported the issue of human rights would not be discussed at the summit as an issue.
U.S. won't bring up human rights at North Korea summit, two administration officials say. https://t.co/01Rkpik6Nb— NBC News (@NBCNews) June 11, 2018
But it turns out, the issue was discussed and will be again in the future.
"It was discussed. It will be discussed more in the future -- human rights," Trump said. "It was discussed. It was discussed relatively briefly compared to denuclearization. Well, obviously, that’s where we started and where we ended. But they will be doing things, and I think he wants to do things."
North Korea's human rights abuses are the worst in the world, as detailed by a 2014 United Nations investigation.
"Inmates are imprisoned, usually for life, in camps without ever having been brought before a judge... They have never been charged, convicted or sentenced... [Many] are incarcerated based solely on the principle of guilt by family association. Some are even born prisoners."— Ryan Struyk (@ryanstruyk) June 12, 2018
"The living conditions in the political prison camps are calculated to bring about mass deaths. Forced to carry out grueling labour, inmates are provided food rations that are so insufficient that many inmates starve to death."— Ryan Struyk (@ryanstruyk) June 12, 2018
"The death toll is further exacerbated by executions, deaths from torture, the
denial of adequate medical care, high incidence of work accidents, lack of shelter and lack of appropriate clothes... the camps have the objective of
gradually eliminating the camp population."— Ryan Struyk (@ryanstruyk) June 12, 2018
"The intentional killings... through summary executions, beatings, infanticide, deliberate starvation and other illegal means, all amount to the crime of murder... The prisoners are often so weakened from malnourishment and disease that they are literally worked to death."— Ryan Struyk (@ryanstruyk) June 12, 2018
"Rape is regularly committed in the political prison camps of the DPRK. They are a product of the environment of the prison camps and the impunity generally enjoyed by camp officials... In other cases, women are pressed into 'consensual' sexual relations."— Ryan Struyk (@ryanstruyk) June 12, 2018
"The imposition of forced abortions on female inmates who become pregnant without authorization not only results in immediate physically harm, it also interferes with the victim’s reproductive rights and causes severe emotional suffering."— Ryan Struyk (@ryanstruyk) June 12, 2018
"Hundreds of thousands of inmates have been exterminated in political prison camps and other places over a span of more than five decades... This raises the question of whether genocide or an international crime akin to it has been committed."— Ryan Struyk (@ryanstruyk) June 12, 2018
"During the period of famine, ideological indoctrination was used in order to
maintain the regime, at the cost of seriously aggravating hunger and starvation... It also delayed international assistance that, provided earlier, could have saved many lives."— Ryan Struyk (@ryanstruyk) June 12, 2018
"These crimes against humanity entail extermination, murder, enslavement, torture, imprisonment, rape, forced abortions and other sexual violence, persecution... the forcible transfer [and] the enforced disappearance of persons and... knowingly causing prolonged starvation."— Ryan Struyk (@ryanstruyk) June 12, 2018
During the State of the Union, President Trump highlighted the story of Ji Seong-ho, who escaped from a North Korean labor camp.
Trump calls North Korean defector an inspiration
Did Obama talk about human rights in his Iran deal?
Ryan Struyk (@ryanstruyk) appears to be on the CIA payroll
NBC like all major brands is fake news
Lets send Jim Acosta over to NK and see for herself the manner of love NK has for Man
No one demanded Albright talk human rights when she was wined and dined by NK
or when China got permanent most favored nation status.
Watched the interview Trump gave with Georgie Step-on-a-lot-of-us. All you needed to see was the body language. Trump was riding his chair like it was a horse, while Georgina had her legs and thighs tightly entwined. I was hoping to see Trump lean over and grab the stinking little leftist twit by its throat.
Amazing accomplishments and all in 1.5 years in office, but I’m still waiting for the brass ring, the Golden trophy: The arrest, indictment and imprisonment of Hillary F. Clinton. He accomplishes that he will without question be the greatest POTUS in history. As it is now, as long as she remains free this country will never have equal justice under the law.
Build the wall, put Clinton behind a prison wall and kick the alien invaders and their children on the other side of the American wall.
Now that would have been a sight
Yes he did!
He wanted to know how he could impose the authoritarian measures that Iran has.
That would be treating him a little too roughly.
He should have slapped the little punk, and when Georgie looked shocked, slapped him again.
North Korea’s record on human rights is appalling to say the least. At this point in negotiations this is of no relevance. If North Korea gives up her nuclear programs and becomes a nation of peace and prosperity the horrible history of human rights violations will stop. They would have zero motive to maintain their Gulag.
The key to peace is prosperity in North Korea. South Korea can do this for the North with the aid of Japan and the United States. Everybody wins. Kim gets to be dictator for life, until he discovers capitalism is better than dictator for life. We do not need to fight another ugly war on the Korean Peninsula, and most importantly a nation is set free.
It will not happen quickly but it will happen if Kim agrees to the deal and allows The West to come into North Korea and invest and build their impoverished nation and he gets rid of his nukes. Everybody wins! Trump did write a book, “Art of the Deal.”
MAGA “go Trump you magnificent bastard.”
The Koreans are some of the absolute most hard working industrious people on earth as South Korea is an example. The same can be done in North Korea.
“North Korea’s human rights abuses are the worst in the world”
We numbah one! We numba one! OK. We talked about human lights, mistah Tlump.
Let’s not forget her hanging.
