No more of Obama’s ‘little red lines’. Trump promises consequences.
President Donald Trump revealed what could end up happening in the tense standoff between the U.S. and North Korea in a new interview.
“There is a chance that we could end up having a major, major conflict with North Korea,” Trump told Reuters. “Absolutely.”
Trump clarified that he still prefers to come to a diplomatic resolution with North Korea, but added achieving that with Kim Jong-un’s regime is “very difficult.” — IJR
Kim has been showing a lot of bluster lately. And America has been pushing back.
China, for their part, is trying to use their influence to reign him in.
Will it work? It depends on what kind of a man Kim is, and how things unfold both domestically within North Korea, and Internationally.
Trump isn’t itching for a conflict.
But he’s obviously wise enough to understand that pledging a preemptive surrender, as Obama has in taking options off the table BEFORE they needed to be considered actually emboldens loose cannons like him, and can lead to situations spiraling quickly out of control.
Maybe someone could have explained this to the previous administration and spared the world an immigration crisis.
