Trump Says No Reason to Resume Military Exercises With South Korea

Aug 30 , 2018

President Trump cast new doubt Wednesday on the future of U.S.-South Korea military exercises, which were suspended earlier this year to smooth the way for now-stalled denuclearization talks with North Korea.

Mr. Trump said in a Twitter message Wednesday that “there is no reason at this time to be spending large amounts of money on joint U.S.-South Korea war games.”

“Besides, the president can instantly start the joint exercises again with South Korea, and Japan, if he so chooses,” he said. “If he does, they will be far bigger than ever before.” The post, written in the third person, was titled “Statement From the White House.”
