President Trump recently released another bold statement saying that his predecessors have “all been outplayed” by North Korea. This seems to be a way to justify Trump’s handling of the current situation with the communist North.
Trump has remained true to his word, and during his campaign and presidency, he has often said nothing is off the table when it comes to North Korea. Unfortunately, Trump doesn’t reveal much of what he’s thinking to those around him, but he has made it clear that showing force with weapons is a possibility.
During a Monday interview with Fox News, Trump went after both Clinton and Obama saying that they have all been outplayed:
“I hope things work out well. I hope there’s going to be peace, but they’ve been talking with this gentleman for a long time. You read Clinton’s book and he said ‘Oh, we made such a great peace deal’ and it was a joke. You look at different things over the years with President Obama. Everybody has been outplayed. They’ve all been outplayed by this gentleman.”
In reference to the “gentleman,” no one is really sure who Trump was referring to. During Bill Clinton’s presidency, Kim Jong Il was leading the North, and during Obama’s presidency, Kim Jong Un assumed power. It’s possible that Trump just misspoke again, and it’s also possible he was just referring to the leadership of the country.
North Korea hasn’t ceased to test nuclear weapons, so America is still creating new ideas to suppress them. During their most recent test, a missile exploded not long after it was launched. Conspiracy theorists were quick to point out the coincidence after America issued a stern warning to stop testing Nuclear weapons. However, when asked by Fox News’ Ainsley Earhardt about if the U.S. sabotaged the test, Trump said, “I don’t want to comment on it.”
What do you think? Do you think the United States sabotaged the missile test? Let us know in the comments below!
