Fake News: Chinese Troops Are Not Massing On North Korean Border

Daily Caller:

There “is no evidence” at this time of any significant troop movements along the Chinese-North Korean border, despite reports suggesting otherwise, the Department of Defense told The Daily Caller News Foundation Monday.

Multiple media outlets are reporting that has deployed 150,000 to the border for “unforeseen contingencies” believed to be the possibility of a U.S. pre-emptive strike on , such as the one President Donald Trump ordered on Syria last Thursday.

U.S. Pacific Command refused to comment on foreign troop movements; however, they did tell TheDCNF that the first they had heard of Chinese troop movements along the border was when a reporter called for comment.

China’s foreign ministry called such reports “pure fiction,” with Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokeswoman Hua Chunying saying, “I have no idea where these reports are coming from.”
