Conway: Trump Putting North Korea 'On Notice,' Not Making Policy

ABC's "Good Morning America"

President-elect Donald Trump put North Korea "on notice" with his tweet concerning Kim Jong Un's declaration his country is close to testing a nuclear missile that could reach the United States, but he is not the president yet, and he is not making policy concerning the East Asian nation, senior adviser Kellyanne Conway said Tuesday.

"We still have a president for the next 17 days," Conway, who will serve as Trump's senior counselor once he is inaugurated, told ABC's "Good Morning America" anchor George Stephanopoulos.

"President Trump will be very tough on those who are developing nuclear capability."

Trump, along with many Americans, found it was a "big disappointment" Iran was "emboldened and increased their nuclear capabilities" through the Iran nuclear deal reached under the Obama administration, Conway said, with Stephanopoulos pointing out Iran's program is "on hold."

Meanwhile, Trump is not stating policy publicly concerning North Korea, and he will not before he is inaugurated, Conway said.

"We do know there are sanctions that are possible," she said. "They haven't always worked. I think China would have to have a significant role here as well."

But still, Trump is putting North Korea "on notice through his tweet and other statements that this won't happen," Conway told Stephanopoulos.

"He, as president of the United States, wants to stand between them and their missile capabilities, which experts say could be deployed to reach Seattle almost immediately."
