Joe Biden Receives First Unwanted North Korean ‘Gift’ of his Presidency

Here we go again.

Sure, Joe Biden’s presidency has been off to a bit of a strange start, what with the end of a pandemic rolling in and a number of mass shootings and a worsening border crisis drifting alongside, souring all the good news surrounding the reopening of our economy.

Now, on top of that mess, Biden is dealing with some misbehavior from the Far East.

North Korea fired at least one missile over the weekend, two U.S. officials told NBC News Tuesday.

It marks the first report of such activity since Joe Biden was sworn in as president.

Officials declined to say what type of missile was fired or where it landed. It was unclear why South Korea’s government had yet to comment on the missile launch. Officials in Seoul typically issue statements after North Korean missile or nuclear tests, and the North Korean government has been known to brag about them, as well.

Biden didn’t seem too terribly concerned, and those within his administration appeared to brush the maneuver aside wholeheartedly.

Asked by reporters what he could say about the incident, Biden said, “We have learned that nothing much has changed.”

A senior administration official told reporters that the type of weapon that was fired over the weekend is not covered by United Nations resolutions. “While we take all military activity seriously,” the official said, the test falls under “the category of normal military activities” by Pyongyang.

Biden’s predecessor, former President Donald Trump, had opened up a series of dialogues with North Korea during his first term in office, even going so far as to become the First American President to step foot in the DPRK in decades.
