North Korea “outplayed” both Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama over the years, President Donald Trump said in an interview airing Tuesday, but he refused to “telegraph” his own plans for dealing with President Kim Jong Un’s aggression, simply saying “we will find out” what will happen if he attempts to launch another missile test.
“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,” the president told “Fox and Friends” co-anchor Ainsley Earhardt in an interview recorded Monday before the annual White House Easter Egg Roll. “It doesn’t work, that ‘wait a minute, we will see what happens.'”
Talks have been going on with the increasingly aggressive North Korean leader for years, Trump said, but “everybody has been outplayed.”
“I hope things work out well. I hope there is going to be peace,” Trump said, before slamming both Obama and Clinton.
“They have been talking with this gentleman for a long time,” said Trump. “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 [Barack] 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.”
