Vice President Mike Pence slammed the mainstream media for ignoring the amazing story of the return of remains of U.S. soldiers killed during the Korean War.
Pence suggested that the media needs to get out of their left-wing bubble and talk to real Americans for a change.
“I think there’s a lot of people in the so-called mainstream media that would do well to spend a little bit more time traveling across this country and listening to the American people,” Pence said on Thursday’s “Fox & Friends,” according to the Washington Examiner.
“Because, frankly, as I travel on behalf of this administration, meeting with groups large and small, I sense a great enthusiasm across the country,” Pence continued. “People see when it comes to President Donald Trump, it really has been a year and a half of promises made and promises kept.”
The remains were returned after President Donald Trump began opening negotiations and diplomatic relations with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un this year. The return of the remains was part of a four-point joint declaration signed by Kim at the historic summit in Singapore in June.
But Pence is right. The media has practically ignored this amazing story. Here we have the reclusive North Koreans who American presidents have been unable to approach meaning thousands of American missing have been languishing across the frozen North Korean border tantalizingly just out of reach for over sixty years, now.
Yet, President Trump has been able to break that ice and open some communications, at least enough to get this first set of remains back.
But, because this is a Trump victory, the hate-filled, left-wing media refuses to tell the story of the return of these brace American soldiers! The media is giving short shrift to these soldiers just to satisfy their hate for Trump.
It is disgusting, certainly.
The North Koreans returned the remains in 55 flag-draped caskets early this week. The remains will go to the U.S. military’s Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency for identification including DNA tests with DNA supplied by family members of soldiers reported missing during the 1950-1953 war.
There were about 7,700 soldiers declared missing during the war and about 5,300 still need to be found and identified, according to government records.
