Secretary of State Says North Korea Still a Threat

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said North Korea is still a threat months after President Trump declared that the country no longer poses a nuclear threat to the U.S. following a historic summit with Kim in Singapore. CNN reports, “‘Do you think North Korea remains a nuclear threat?’ CNN’s Jake Tapper asked Pompeo Sunday on ‘State of the Union.’ ‘Yes,’ Pompeo replied.” Pompeo’s comments come ahead of a planned summit between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un this week. This second summit will take place in Vietnam in which Trump will likely try to convince Kim to abandon his nuclear program.

Meet the Writer: Charlotte Kohlberg

As an aspiring writer with an intense passion for music, Charlotte Kohlberg’s journey into music journalism was a perfect fit. Born in Palo Alto, California, Kohlberg’s love of music started with the pop punk princesses of the early 2000s — P!nk and Avril Lavigne. After majoring in art history at NYU, she took an interest in music marketing and A&R work. But a chance meeting with a music journalist in the Bay Area led her on the path to music journalism. Since then, she has been working for the Knockturnal, an entertainment website operated out of New York. Read more in Tim Coffman’s report for CMN.
