Trump Says Obama, Clinton Were 'Outplayed' By North Korea

President Trump suggested Tuesday that he will be more successful than his predecessors in controlling North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, Newsmax reported.

“I don’t want to telegraph what I’m doing or thinking; I’m not like other administrations where they say we are going to do this in four weeks,” Trump told Fox News. “It doesn’t work, that ‘wait a minute, we will see what happens.’ … I hope things work out well. I hope there is going to be peace.”

Referring to efforts by former presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama to rein in North Korea’s ruling family, Trump declared: “They have been talking with this gentleman for a long time. You read Clinton’s book, where they said we made such a great peace deal, and it was a joke. You look at different things over the years with President Obama. Everybody has been outplayed. They have all been outplayed by this gentleman. We will see what happens. I just don’t telegraph my moves.”

When Clinton was in the White House, in the 1990s, Kim Jong Un was a child. The North Korean ruler was his father, Kim Jong-Il, who died in 2011.

“Fox and Friends” anchor Ainsley Earhardt cited reports that the United States sabotaged last weekend’s ballistic-missile test in North Korea. She asked Trump how he will respond if Kim Jong Un continues his country’s nuclear-weapons development. The president did not respond directly, commenting only that “we will find out.”

Trump rejected allegations that he has changed his position on China, which he strongly criticized during last year’s campaign. At the time, he accused the nation’s leaders of “currency manipulation” in international trade deals.

“Look, China came to the United States,” Trump told Earhardt, regarding his recent conversations with Chinese leader Xi Jinping at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida. “The president, who I really developed a very good relationship with, I think he is a terrific person, I really got to know him very well over a two-day period. We were together hours and hours and hours by ourselves. We had a 15-minute schedule meeting and it lasted for three hours. The same thing happened the next day. We have a good chemistry together.”
