Donald Trump becoming president might have just been the most dangerous thing that happened to America.
Former North Korean deputy ambassador to Britain, Thae Yong Ho, made an appearance on NBC where he was interviewed by Lester Holt. The former deputy said Kim Jong Un was “desperate in maintaining his rule by relying on his [development of] nuclear weapons and ICBM,” referring to an intercontinental ballistic missile that could hit the US.
He went on to say that if the North Korean Dictator “sees that there is any kind of sign of a tank or an imminent threat from America, then he would use his nuclear weapons with ICBM.”
Thae’s warning comes after the US openly mulled the prospect of military action against North Korea.
Trump made a very daring statement on Sunday, saying “China will either decide to help us with North Korea, or they won’t,” adding, “If China is not going to solve North Korea, we will.”
Thae stressed that “Kim Jong Un is a person who did not even hesitate to kill his uncle and a few weeks ago, even his half-brother … So, he is a man who can do anything to remove [anyone in] his way.”
Trump doesn’t know what he’s dealing with. He could trigger the dangerous dictator with a tweet or and unprecedented action.
Trump is due to meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping later this week, and he has made clear his intentions to talk about North Korea.
