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