Trump: North Korea nuke prob­lem should have been taken care of ‘25 years ago’

The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS - — Sally Per­sons

Pres­i­dent Trump said the North Korea sit­u­a­tion “should’ve been han­dled 25 years ago.”

“This should’ve been han­dled 25 years ago, it should’ve been han­dled 20 years ago, and 10 years ago and five years ago. It should’ve been han­dled by nu­mer­ous — not just Obama — but cer­tainly Pres­i­dent Obama should’ve taken care of it,” Mr. Trump said in an in­ter­view with Fox News.

“Now, it’s at the point where it’s very, very far ad­vanced. Some­thing has to be done. We can’t al­low this to hap­pen,” he said.

Many have crit­i­cized Mr. Trump for tweet­ing about the sit­u­a­tion and re­fer­ring to North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-un as “Rocket Man” in his ad­dress to the United Na­tions.

North Korea has been test­ing nu­clear weapons since 2006.
