    "After a year in which he tested a hydrogen bomb and an ICBM, threatened to destroy the United States, and called President Trump “a dotard,” Kim Jong Un, at the gracious invitation of the president of South Korea, will be sending a skating team to the “Peace Olympics.”

    An impressive year for Little Rocket Man."

    Reminder, this would not be happening without Bill Clinton:
    "Two American aerospace companies damaged U.S. national security when they provided Chinese space engineers with technical rocketry data that could have assisted Beijing's ballistic missile program, a House committee concluded yesterday in a classified 700-page report."
    "President Bill Clinton on Friday defended a controversial satellite deal with China, even as White House officials delivered documents to the House International Relations Committee about the arrangement.

    The president said the deal to launch U.S. satellites on rockets owned by other nations was 'correct' and 'based on what I thought was in the national interest and supportive of our national security.'"
    "In a May 1996 letter co-signed by two other aerospace executives, Schwartz urged Clinton to promptly implement a decision to transfer the export licensing of commercial satellites from the State Department to the Commerce Department. The Commerce Department, by law, must also represent business interests as it considers export licensing decisions. Clinton ultimately gave the companies what they wanted.

    In 1994, Schwartz also pushed hard for a seat on a coveted trip to China led by Commerce Secretary Ronald Brown. Schwartz met in Beijing with a top Chinese telecommunications official, which led to Loral's winning a deal to provide cellular telephone service to China, an agreement that will soon be worth $250 million annually"
    "In the aftermath of three failed satellite launches since 1992, U.S. satellite manufacturers transferred missile design information and know-how to the P.R.C. without obtaining the legally required licenses.

    This information has improved the reliability of P.R.C. rockets useful for civilian and military purposes. The illegally transmitted information is useful for the design and improved reliability of future P.R.C. ballistic missiles, as well."
