Biden turns down North Korea’s first ballistic missile test when the president insists the launch was just ‘normal business’


Prime Minister Joe Biden considers the launch of North Korea’s short-range missile “as simple as usual” on Tuesday.

The president said he and his defense officials did not consider the North’s launch of some short-range ballistic cruise missiles anything of concern – instead, saying they were disobeying resolution of the Security Council of the United Nations.

When asked by reporters on Tuesday night, Biden has instead coldly played the latest act of aggression.

“We have learned that nothing has changed,” he said.

“No, according to the Defense Department, it’s normal business,” Biden said when asked if he should consider the launch as a provocation.

“There are no new wrinkles in what they did.”

Biden’s passive shrug comes just a week after North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un’s sister warned the United States to avoid “causing a stink” on nuclear power, and said talks would do not continue unless the US is willing to give up sanctions on the isolated country.

The president’s reaction is also in stark contrast to Line “fire and anger” of Trump, where he is in 2017 promised to respond to “unprecedented flames and rage” if North Korea launched a missile – something it did in the end.
