Stephen Moore: Trump Is Right, We Can't Live With NK Nukes

Economic analyst Stephen Moore lauded President Donald Trump's tough talk on North Korea in his first address to the U.N. General Assembly, saying America "can't live" with the reclusive nation having a nuclear bomb.

In an interview with "Newsmax Now" hosts Bill Tucker and Ellis Henican on Newsmax TV, Moore, a senior fellow at the Heritage Foundation and former Trump senior economic adviser, called the address "very much of an American first speech, and I thought it was quite appropriate."

"North Korea is the greatest menace on the earth right now in terms of its ability to drop a bomb on many of the Asian countries that are our allies," he said.

"You've got a lunatic who's running that country and Trump reiterated [Tuesday] what he's been saying for the last few months, which is 'If you're trading with North Korea, you're trading with terrorists. If you're doing business with North Korea, you're trading with terrorists, and we're not going to trade with you if you're aiding and abetting our enemy and the enemy of the civilized world.'"

"There's too many liberals, by the way, who are saying, 'Gee, we could live with North Korea having a nuclear bomb,'" he added. "No we can't."

Moore also endorsed a GOP healthcare bill proposed by Sens. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., and Bill Cassidy, R-La., which would provide block grants to states for healthcare.

"Do I love it? No. But would I take it? Hell yes, I would at this point," he declared, adding Democrats "showed their hand" and want "a single-payer, government-run healthcare system."

"A lot of people don't understand Medicaid, they have no idea how it works," he said. "I want to be very clear about this, Medicaid is about the dumbest system that was ever invented for providing healthcare. We provide states more and more and more money, the more money they waste. . . . States have an incentive to waste money on Medicaid because every dollar that they waste, the federal government kicks in as much as 67 cents."

"This plan would actually reverse those incentives," he added about the Graham-Cassidy bill. "It would give states what's called a block grant, a set amount of money in saying, 'you have this amount of money, not a penny more, you provide the care, you provide the competition, you provide the hospitalization, and the coverage for people, but we're not going to give you more money.'"
