Former congressman Pete Hoekstra wonders why the media is focusing so much on President Donald Trump's actions regarding North Korea instead of looking at the previous administrations he feels put America into the situation it's in now.

Hoekstra told Newsmax TV's J.D. Hayworth the media is acting in an "unprofessional" manner.

"They're not only hostile, they're unprofessional and they don't cover the history of this," said Hoekstra, a former chairman of the House Intelligence Committee. "Where are their questions about what Bill Clinton, what George Bush, what Barack Obama did over the last 24, 25 years to get us into this position?

"Donald Trump is dealing with multiple foreign policy crises that are a result of failed U.S. policy of more than a decade."

Trump and North Korea have traded verbal barbs this week as the reclusive nation ramps up its nuclear weapons program. It threatened to fire missiles near Guam, a U.S. territory in the Pacific Ocean. Trump retorted by threatening to use military force.

Hoekstra said the threat is real, but the news media is simply fishing for soundbites.

"We have a hostile press corps that's trying to bait this president into saying something that will be another news clip without really considering the very extreme circumstances that we face," he said.
