Bon voyage, Rivage-Seul

Since Mike Rivage-Seul seems to have so much dislike for President Donald Trump and the United States, I would like to start a campaign to fund him on a year-long trip to North Korea. Then he may see the United States more favorably, but I doubt it.

Before leaving, he must stop in Ohio to meet the parents of Otto Warmbier, the 22-year-old arrested in North Korea for stealing a poster. In a CNN interview, Fred Warmbier said his son’s teeth had been rearranged, he had a large scar on his foot, he was blind and had severe brain damage. He died a few days after he was returned home.

Rivage-Seul said Trump is endangering the lives of 25 million North Koreans and indicated he belongs in the same class as Hitler. But the United Nations just voted to put sanctions on North Korea, and China is going to start restricting oil sales, so Trump and the U.S. are not the only ones concerned. Kim Jong Un is also flying missiles over Japan and threatening a nuclear test in the Pacific Ocean, thereby endangering the 127 million people of Japan.

Rivage-Suel, we’ll fund your trip. Good riddance.
