The outgoing Obama administration has told Donald Trump's transition team that North Korea is the top national security issue, The Wall Street Journal reported, citing people familiar with conversations.
Officials, who have grown increasingly concerned about North Korea's nuclear weapons program, are now pushing for a more assertive response, the Journal said.
CNBC previously reported that North Korea's nuclear capability may be the No.1 foreign policy threat for the incoming Trump administration. Michael Flynn, Trump's national security adviser, said the issue will be given a high priority under the new administration, Reuters reported last week citing a South Korean official who spoke with Flynn.
I am actually in sync with this and consider North Korea a real threat.
Add this to the long list of threats, though, that Trump and his crazed advisers see.
