President Donald Trump has said that military option against North Korea is certainly an option for him, but hoped that he does not have to use it.
“Military action would certainly be an option. Is it inevitable? Nothing is inevitable. It would be great if something else could be worked out,” Trump said adding further “We would have to look at all the details, all of the facts. But we’ve had presidents for 25 years now, they’ve been talking, talking, and the day after an agreement is reached, new work begins in North Korea, continuation on nuclear. So, I would prefer not going the route of the military, but it’s something certainly that could happen,” when a question was posed.
US which has been very vocal on the issue and calling for sanctions over the North Korea urging others to follow the suit has already received criticism for tending to go on warpath rather than solving the issue amicably through talks considering the fact North Korea is supported by China and even Russia is not against it.
Trump who has been ridiculed for his alleged involvement with Russia on the last year’s Presidential Polls may be trying to deviate the attention of the public and the press/media felt few.
Trump also said “Hopefully we’re not going to have to use it on North Korea. If we do use it on North Korea, it will be a very sad day for North Korea. I’m not negotiating with you. Maybe we’ll have a chance to negotiate with somebody else, but I don’t put my negotiations on the table. Unlike past administrations, I don’t talk about them. But I can tell you that North Korea is behaving badly, and it’s got to stop.”
