Trump’s North Korea policy was put on display on Sunday morning, as the President’s plan to deal with the nuclear weapon pursuing regime is to mock them on Twitter.
I spoke with President Moon of South Korea last night. Asked him how Rocket Man is doing. Long gas lines forming in North Korea. Too bad!

The President undercut any attempts being made to solve this crisis with a single tweet. Trump’s social media statements are why the North Koreans don’t take him seriously. The presidency is not reality television. Taunting and mocking aren’t the same as governance. The reason why the Kim regime has accelerated its nuclear program so quickly is that they tested Trump early in his presidency and realized that he is going to do nothing to stop them.
It is almost as if the President is trying to provoke an armed conflict in North Korea. Trump wants to be a wartime president, and his childish taunts are only pushing a crisis closer to the brink. While Trump tweets, the regime continues to launch missiles and develop their nuclear program, and when the crisis hits the breaking point, Trump will take no responsibility while claiming that the military was his only option.
Trump is embarrassing, but even worse, he is a danger to the safety of the entire world.
