Trump: Tillerson 'Wasting His Time' Negotiating with North Korea

This is just mad.

President Donald Trump on Sunday again mocked North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and said Secretary of State Rex Tillerson should not bother trying to negotiate with him in an effort to stop the country's development of nuclear weapons.

"I told Rex Tillerson, our wonderful Secretary of State, that he is wasting his time trying to negotiate with Little Rocket Man..." Trump said on Twitter.

He continued, "...Save your energy Rex, we'll do what has to be done!"

Why wouldn't you want to ever end negotiations?

So should we expect a Trump attempt at assassinating Kim?

What is Kim thinking?




  1. If Tillerson is actually serious about not getting into a war with North Korea then go Tillerson go

  2. This is almost certainly a good cop/bad cop routine. That's done in negotiating all the time, and given Trump's perspective/self-described-image, that's probably what this is.

    Not sure that's good foreign policy, though.
