And the S&P 500 surges to all-time record highs after the latest North Korea ICBM launch. Here’s more…
President Trump just gave a press conference on a number of topics and answered a few questions from reporters.
He ended by saying that “two hours ago, everything changed”.
Here’s what went down a couple of hours ago. After more than a month since the last launch, North Korea is at it again, and they have launched another missile.
Here’s Fox News:
North Korea fired an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) around 1:30 p.m. ET on Tuesday, the first such launch from the rogue regime in more than two months, a U.S. official confirmed to Fox News.
The missile, believed to be an ICBM by the Pentagon based on initial assessments, was launched from Sain Ni in North Korea and flew roughly 620 miles before landing in the Sea of Japan.
South Korea’s Yonhap News Agency, which first reported the launch, said the missile launch happened around 3 a.m. local time in North Korea. South Korea’s military had reportedly staged a “precision strike” missile exercise in response.
