- We’ll do what has to be done with North Korea - Trump.
- Trump urges Tillerson to forget about discussing with Kim Jong-un.
- Obama, Bush, and others achieved nothing from being nice to North Korea.
U.S President Donald Trump has told the Secretary of State Rex Tillerson that it is pointless attempting to dialogue with North Korea in the wake of
the most recent sanctions they are currently facing.
“I told Rex Tillerson, our wonderful secretary of state, that he is wasting his time trying to negotiate with Little Rocket Man,” Trump wrote on Twitter, using his sarcastic nickname for Kim and seeming to contradict the top U.S. diplomat.
President Trump further stated that former U.S. Presidents Clinton, Bush and Obama had all failed to achieve anything by "playing nice to Rocket Man"
“So why would it work now?” he asked.
This comes after Tillerson disclosed on Saturday that the United States was directly communicating with North Korea on its nuclear and missile programs but that Pyongyang had shown no interest in dialogue.
“Save your energy Rex, we’ll do what has to be done!” Trump said.
The U.S. Secretary of State continues to remain hopeful of reducing tensions with North Korea as they are fast approaching their target of developing a weapon capable of reaching U.S. Mainland.
“We are probing, so stay tuned,” Tillerson told a small group of reporters. “We ask: ‘Would you like to talk?'” He said the United States had “a couple of, three channels, open to Pyongyang.”
