At that time, Trump was talking about the past events that heard the high-level reports of the US Army Sade. He did not mention the exact time, but revealed that he had asked the generals present, How much did it cost to deploy the Sadd system to protect South Korea, and by whom? South Koreas SBS television reported that Trump was surprised to hear that the United States was spending $1 billion on this, and immediately said that Sade should be withdrawn from the United States deployment. In this regard, the U. S. military high-level voiced opposition, explaining that this is the Obama administration has reached an agreement with South Korea, but Trump repeatedly stressed that I do not care. South Koreas SBS television station said Trumps remarks and fear: Trump in the White House disclosed roughly the same content. Trump, after hearing reports from the National Security Assistant on the deployment of Sadd, demanded that Sadd be withdrawn from South Korea and deployed in Portland. It was reported that Trump also deliberately highlighted South Koreas rich country status at the rally, saying that he had bought Samsung and LG TV many times before. He said, we like Korea very much, and we are stationing a large number of troops there, but they have not paid. Korean media said that this is actually advocating South Koreas security free ride theory. (Wang Wei, our newspaper reporter) this article is from the Global Times - World Wide Web.

The South Koreans are really depressed. The United States forcibly deployed Sade. As a result, South Korea was beaten by the Chinese. Now the United States also asks South Korea to pay the Sade fee? Poor Korean

Well, nobody debates South Korea's need for missile defense. In fact, it is hard to find any country in the world which has a better justification for missile defense systems. According to the South Korean government, the installation of U.S. THAAD units is only a temporary solution until SK's own air and missile defense system comes online.

The Chinese government has been against the installation of these U.S. air defense systems in South Korea since 2016. Why the Chinese are against THAAD in South Korea is not clear. THAAD (Terminal High Altitude Area Defense) is not an offensive weapon, and it's sole capability is to destroy ballistic missiles. It is not an offensive missile system that could be used to strike a city, for example.

What is your evidence that the United States forced the THAAD deployment upon South Korea? Why would they need to forcibly deploy them? It is in the best interest of South Korea to protect themselves with U.S. anti-missile technology.

China’s domestic news media said that Americans are not being attacked by North Korea’s missiles in order to protect South Korea.
I'm not sure what you are trying to say here. I think you are saying that Chinese news is saying that America is using North Korea as an excuse to install missiles in South Korea. If that's not what you mean, please explain further.

We can examine that claim. First off, if I'm not mistaken, Chinese domestic news is heavily influenced and/or controlled by the Chinese government, so it is natural that such media would mimic the government's stance. The deeper question is: why is the Chinese government against the United States installing anti-ballistic missile systems in South Korea?

Because installing the Saad system in South Korea is an impolite behavior in China, and it has the meaning of peeping at the Chinese army.
Impolite? Why?

Peeping at the chinese Army? The United States already has satellites which are "peeping at the Chinese army" virtually 24/7. What "peeping" is THAAD doing that isn't already being done?

Suppose it was a South Korean system performing the same duties at the same location, would that be equally impolite?
