Rep. Zeldin: Trump 'Inherited a Flawed Strategy' on North Korea

By    |   Friday, 08 June 2018 02:25 PM

Rep. Lee Zeldin, R-N.Y., said Friday that President Donald Trump "inherited a flawed strategy at best" on North Korea, but that he "knows what he’s getting into."

Zeldin said on Fox News’ "America’s Newsroom" on Friday that Trump "inherited a flawed strategy at best, you could say there was no strategy at all" regarding the "DIME" principle, which stands for diplomacy, information, military, economics, which guides U.S. policy.

"Fast forward a year and a half into his term and we have this summit coming up," Zeldin added, referring to the upcoming summit in Singapore where Trump plans to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

"I've spoken to President Trump about North Korea and he is focused and he knows what he's getting himself into. His eyes are wide open. He is willing to walk if necessary. He’d love to have a deal if one can be gotten. And he also knows it’s in the best interest of the United States, North Korea, South Korea, Japan, China and the world if this could be successful, and I think the President would love to get there but he'll be willing to walk if North Korea tries rolling him the way Iran tried rolling Barack Obama."
