On Tuesday, President Trump threatened to destroy North Korea during a meeting with the United Nations General.
In response, during in post speech analysis on the speech, ABC’s Terry Moran said that President Trump’s North Korea rhetoric “borders on the threat of committing a war crime.”
In the speech, Trump said, “Rocket man is on a suicide mission for himself and for his whole regime.”
He continued, “No nation on Earth has an interest in seeing this band of criminals arm itself with nuclear weapons and missiles. The United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea.”
In response, anchor George Stephanopoulos said, “Terry, if you read the president’s words, he said the conditions for totally destroying North Korea would be if forced to defend ourselves and our allies. You can read that possibly to even open up a justification for preventative war against North Korea.”
In response, Moran added, “That is a potential justification, but the words totally destroying a nation of 25 million people, that borders on the threat of committing a war crime.”
Moran also took to Twitter to continue criticizing Trump.
