CNN’s Tapper tears into secretary of state

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson will reportedly travel to Asia next week without any press, and CNN anchor Jake Tapper is not happy about it.

Tillerson will arrive in Japan on March 15, travel to South Korea on March 17 and visit China on March 18-19, according to Reuters. While he’s there, the secretary is slated to discuss North Korea’s recent missile tests and the United States’ economic and national security interests in the region.

North Korea, which has frequently promised to obliterate the U.S. and South Korea, launched more than 20 long-range missile tests in 2016 and has conducted at least five nuclear tests over the past decade, defying United Nations sanctions against them. In January, North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un said his country was in the “final stage” of preparation to test an intercontinental ballistic missile.

So when Tapper learned that Tillerson wasn’t taking traveling press on the Asian trip next week, the CNN host took to Twitter to lambaste the decision as “insulting to any American who is looking for anything but a state-run version of events.”

    You need to straighten out your corruption in your paper, and while you are at it start being truthful instead of cheating and lying about everything.
    Better yet get the He** out of the reporting all you do is lie for the treacherous Democrats.
