“Countries must be held accountable when they break the rules.” Those powerful words were spoken at a press briefing earlier today by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.
Today on the broadcast, we discussed Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s press conference at which he announced the United States will be withdrawing from the 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty with Russia.
Sec. Pompeo cited the continued development of missile systems that pose a direct threat to America and our allies.
As stated in Sec. Pompeo’s address:
"For years, Russia has violated the terms of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty without remorse.
"To this day, Russia remains in material breach of its treaty obligations not to produce, possess or flight test a ground-launched intermediate range cruise missile system with a range between 500 and 5,500 kilometers.”
In his speech, Pompeo pointed out that this decision has not been reached hastily, as the U.S. has given Russia ample opportunities to address and rectify its violations of the treaty.
“In spite of this violation, for almost six years the United States has gone to tremendous lengths to preserve this agreement, and insure security for our people, our allies, and our partners. We have raised Russia’s non-compliance with Russian officials, including at the highest levels of government, more than 30 times.
Yet Russia continues to deny that its missile system is non-compliant and violates the treaty.”
Russia has six-months to return to compliance with the treaty, but it seems unlikely at this moment that they will make any necessary changes.

President Trump always does things differently, and this weekend was no different when he once again made history as the first sitting American President to step foot on North Korean soil.

The situation on the southern border is one of mayhem and an unresolved crisis of ever-increasing magnitude. The inaction by Congress combined with judicial proceedings designed to prevent any action being taken as to border security, and immigration in general, is inexcusable, with stark results.
As we’ve said many times, the crisis at the southern border is real. And it’s getting worse. The President is doing his best to address it. But the Speaker Nancy Pelosi-led U.S. House of Representatives, the leftist governments of certain states, and leftist organizations are doing everything they...
