Ex-Obama Aide Warns Trump’s Nuke Negotiation With North Korea Could End In Disaster: ‘This Isn’t A Reality Show’

A former security adviser to President Barack Obama raised concerns about Donald Trump’s nuke negotiation skills on Sunday during an on-air interview with ABC host Jonathan Karl.

Appearing on This Week, ex-Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes said Trump is way over his head if he plans to speak nuclear negotiations with North Korean strongman Kim Jong-un. He claimed that the meeting between the two leaders could end in disaster.

“This is not a real estate deal or a reality show. When you’re in a negotiation as complex as a North Korean nuclear program, and a situation that is volatile as the Korean peninsula, you need diplomats,” Rhodes explained to the ABC host.

“You don’t hollow out the State Department,” Rhodes warned. “Look — they have no ambassador to Seoul. The person who was in charge of North Korean negotiations just left the State Department.”

Rhodes went on to say that he has been in contact with Obama and they are both concerned about the situation.

“We have a lot of concerns with how they’ve handled the State Department, how they’ve handled science, and how they’ve been erratic on this issue with North Korea,” he said, before adding, “I think the nation should be rooting for diplomacy to work with North Korea, and I think that’s certainly President Obama’s view.”
