It’s been said when President Trump spoke with former President Obama after the election, Obama told President Trump, “North Korea is a mess, here you go.” I’m paraphrasing, of course.
Many had wondered how a former businessman would handle such a difficult international problem. Well, in no time it became clear. President Trump would NOT back down and allow Kim Jung-un to bully the US or its friends in the region.
The NK leader wasted no time in testing President Trump’s resolve. He threatened a nuclear attack against our forces in Guam, our friends in Japan, and he even went on to say he’d nuke our western coastline. Yep, Kim Jung-un was feeling his cheerios after eight years of President Obama and his weak-kneed, kneeling to world leaders, and groveling at the feet of tyrants around the world. However, NOTHING could have prepared him for President Donald J. Trump!
President Trump is not one to let a threat stand unanswered. When Kim Jung bragged about his nuclear button, President Trump claimed that he had a button too, but his is bigger and works. Ya just gotta LOVE that comeback.
Then, of course, the comment about how he wouldn’t say Kim Jung-un was fat. That one was priceless. Also, the Rocketman nickname was too funny.
With this back and forth between the two leaders, the liberal media, never-Trumpers, and even some of those who claim to support President Trump, cringed and said President Trump being unpresidential. Well, yesterday was proof that President Trump knew full well what he was doing.
In the interview with Fox News' Sean Hannity, President Trump explained his reasoning for taking such drastic measures:
There you have it, my fellow Deplorables. Sometimes you have to roll around in the mud to subdue the squealing piglet. President Trump understands that you have to handle certain people harsher to get them to come around to your way of thinking.
Good job, President Trump. I’m behind you 100%!
