Bill Richardson: I Don't See Trump Opening Up Relations With North Korea

Donald Trump has little chance of forging a good relationship with North Korea – and can't conduct foreign policy like he would run his business or reality TV show, according to veteran diplomat and Korea expert Bill Richardson.

In an interview with "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV Tuesday, the former New Mexico governor, who has been a "troubleshooter" in the contentious relationship between North and South Korea, says Trump's statements on nuclear weapons have complicated relations.

"He's called for nuclear weapons for South Korea, for Japan," he said. "That's only going to destabilize the region more in Northeast Asia, especially since North Korea's continuing their path towards more nuclear weapons."

"They may have eight or nine now, they have missiles," he added.

"And his call for meeting directly with [North Korea leader] Kim Jung-Un without preparatory work" – in light of his criticism of the leader as "a nuts" – is ill-advised, Richardson said.

"You can't do foreign policy negotiating like for a casino or a reality show or a new hotel," Richardson said. "This is serious life and death business. Don't do that."
