President Trump said Tuesday that “you always have to be concerned” when asked about the possibility of nuclear war with North Korea.
“Look, you always have to be concerned,” Trump told Wisconsin’s WTMJ. “You don’t know exactly who you’re dealing with. I had a great great meeting with the president of China and that meeting tells me a lot and you’ve seen a lot of things happen. They have a pretty good power, not a great power perhaps, but a pretty good power over North Korea. We’re gonna see what happens. It’s a very, very tricky situation.”
The UN ambassador for North Korea said Monday that the U.S. had “created a dangerous situation in which thermonuclear war may break out at any moment on the peninsula and poses a serious threat to world peace and security.”
Trump added that past administrations had held off on dealing with North Korea.
“Now I’m put in a position where he actually has nuclear and we’re gonna have to do something about it,” Trump said. “Hopefully he wants peace and we want peace and that’s going to be the end determination, but we’re going to see what happens.”
