Trump: Don't Want to 'Telegraph' Action on NKorea

Fox News' "The O'Reilly Factor"

President Donald Trump is keeping his plans for North Korea close to the vest amid escalating tensions over Pyongyang's nuclear weapons program, insisting he does not want to "telegraph" any U.S. action.

In an interview Monday with Fox News aired on "The O'Reilly Factor," the president reiterated his oft-stated belief it is foolish to give away too much strategy, especially on foreign affairs – and then took a swipe at previous Democratic administrations for doing exactly that.

"I don't want to telegraph what I am doing or what I am thinking," he said. "I am not like other administrations, where they say, we are going to do this in four weeks. It doesn't work that way. We'll see what happens.

"I hope things work out well, I hope there is going to be peace. They have been talking with this gentleman for a long time," he said, referring to North Korea leader Kim Jong Un.

"You read [President Bill] Clinton's book, he said we made such a great peace deal, and it was a joke. You look at different things over the years with President [Barack] Obama –everybody – he has been outplayed.

"They have all been outplayed by this gentleman. We'll see what happens. I just don't telegraph my moves."
