Sen. Warren Questions Trump's Strategy on NKorea Talks

("CBS This Morning")

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., questioned Tuesday if the Trump administration actually has a strategy regarding the negotiations with North Korea.

Discussing the prospect of a proposed summit between the United States and North Korea, Warren told "CBS This Morning" that "I want this to work to reduce the threat to South Korea, to Japan, to our allies in the region, to the United States of America, to the entire world, but it really takes a strategy."

Warren added, "At this point, who knows what's coming out of Washington," after President Donald Trump canceled the summit scheduled for June 12 and then two days later indicated the meeting appeared to be back on track.

When asked if positive signs about the summit is a sign Trump does know what he is doing, Warren said "you can’t take a bunch of disconnected dots, draw a line and say, that must have been a strategy.

"What it takes for a strategy is you really have a goal, you build up the team to work on that goal," Warren said. "Diplomacy is a long and difficult task, and it takes people who know what they're doing."

She slammed the administration for decimating the State Department to such an extent that many of the very people who are the experts who are needed to make such negotiations a success are not even there anymore.

Warren compared the U.S. strategy in the Korean Peninsula to that of China, saying "China's got the long-term arc, and it's playing everybody. It's playing North Korea, it's playing South Korea, it's playing the United States of America, because it has a longtime, whole-of-government strategy that keeps driving toward an end."

She also emphasized, while she wants to see the North Koreans give up their nuclear capabilities and hopes Trump could deliver on that, "there's a long space between here and there, and it takes a coherent and executed strategy to get there."
