CNN is reporting that North Korea has stepped back from their threats against Guam, and the network is even willing to give some of the credit to President Trump’s amped-up rhetoric. Mark Hertling, CNN’s chief military contributor, said it’s “very possible” that POTUS does deserve the recognition. Many in the mainstream media panicked when it seemed like his “fire and fury” statements were more out there than they would have wanted. So all the more reason to believe them now, if they’re saying this strong rhetoric may have won a small victory against the Kim Jong-un regime.
