President Donald Trump claimed on Tuesday that his administration is aware of more than a dozen ballistic missile bases in North Korea, labeling a New York Times report on those sites “inaccurate” and “more fake news.”
“The story in the New York Times concerning North Korea developing missile bases is inaccurate,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “We fully know about the sites being discussed, nothing new – and nothing happening out of the normal. Just more Fake News. I will be the first to let you know if things go bad!”
The New York Times reported Monday on satellite images revealing 16 hidden ballistic missile bases in North Korea that the newspaper wrote were “long known to American intelligence agencies but left undiscussed as President Trump claims to have neutralized the North’s nuclear threat.” The Times reported that Pyongyang has continued to make improvements at the 16 hidden sites even as it has offered to dismantle a ballistic missile launch site amid ongoing denuclearization talks with the U.S.
