President Donald Trump tweeted Thursday that "I've been saying it for a long, long time" in warning against North Korea having nuclear weapons.

Here's the president's post:

The tweet begins with former Democratic President Bill Clinton announcing a 1994 deal with Pyongyang to freeze its nuclear weapons program at the White House, with Clinton saying that "this is a good deal for the United States."

It then includes a Trump interview with former "Meet the Press" host Tim Russert 18 years ago — five years after the deal was announced — asking when is it best to stop North Korea from getting nuclear weapons.

"Do you want to do it in five years, when they have warheads all over the place, every one of them pointing to New York City, to Washington to all our allies?" Trump asked Russert. "Is that when you want to do it?

"You better do it now."

The post then includes a Fox news report from last month about experts saying that Pyongyang can launch an ICBM that could possibly reach every city in the U.S. — and then comments from Defense Secretary James Mattis saying the missile "went higher, frankly, than any other shots they've taken.

"The bottom line is it's a continued threat, missile threat, that endangers world peace — regional peace — and certainly the United States," Mattis said.
