One of the reasons President Trump has to deal with North Korea now is due to what Bill Clinton did with North Korea in the 1990’s. Clinton made a deal with North Korea back then and it didn’t work out too well.
You can watch Clinton talking about it in the video below but first, here’s some background from the Daily Caller:
FLASHBACK 1994: Clinton Says His Deal With North Korea Would Make The World Safer
ormer President Bill Clinton thought he saved the world from a nuclear North Korea more than two decades ago, but he was wrong.
North Korea now has an intercontinental ballistic missile that can range most of the continental U.S., and a new Defense Intelligence Agency assessment suggests that North Korea has successfully miniaturized nuclear warheads for its missiles. The North is, according to a recent defense intelligence report, expected to be able to field a reliable, nuclear-armed ICBM as early as next year.
In the early 1990s, Clinton faced a growing nuclear threat from North Korea, but he ultimately chose diplomacy and deals over the application of military force…
“This is a good deal for the United States,” he said at the time. “North Korea will freeze and then dismantle its nuclear program. South Korea and our other allies will be better protected. The entire world will be safer as we slow the spread of nuclear weapons.”
