Rush Limbaugh says President Donald Trump may be employing a madman strategy in an effort to convince North Korea he is unpredictable.
"These are genuine madmen in North Korea," the conservative talk radio host said. "These people are literally off-the-charts insane, and it might be something as simple as inbreeding. Who the hell knows? These people are odd. You have to admit it, folks.
"So Trump may be thinking, 'You know what? I'm gonna make them think I'm unpredictable. I'm gonna make them think that I am a madman. I'm gonna reverse the table on 'em, and I'm gonna make them think I'm the one that's unpredictable.' Because they have been able to launch their putrid little missiles here for decades with the knowledge that nobody's gonna do anything about it."
The administration has redirected the USS Carl Vinson aircraft carrier toward the Korean Peninsula, in what U.S. national security adviser H.R. McMaster called a "prudent" move given the North Korean threat,"The Wall Street Journal reported.
"I think our message is, 'Keep aiming, Little Kim — and if you get close to us, they're gonna pay the price for it.' The North Koreans should have been taken out years ago. I think what Trump is employing — and you leftists ought to love this. I think Trump is employing the madman strategy. I think he's trying."
