Rep. Ted Lieu, D-Calif., says the Trump administration has no clear-cut strategy to deal with North Korea's nuclear threat.

His comments come in an interview with Newsweek.

"Ten months into this administration, if you ask a very simple and crucial question on North Korea, they can't answer it: 'Does the U.S. support diplomacy toward North Korea?' Right now, no one knows," Lieu says.

He adds that it is "very clear the Trump administration has no strategy toward North Korea."

Lieu says he disagrees with President Donald Trump's belief of being "unpredictable" when it comes to foreign policy, according to Newsweek.

"You want leaders to be clear and not miscalculate," he says. "Who would've wanted John F. Kennedy to be unpredictable during the Cuban missile crisis?"

Meanwhile, Lieu and Rep. Ruben Gallego, D-Ariz., sent a letter to Defense Secretary James Mattis on Sept. 26 asking for casualty estimates in the event the U.S. goes to war with North Korea.

"That is an unbelievably bloody scenario," Lieu says. "North Korea is an absolute danger and threat, and we need to take its ability to kill a lot of people seriously."
