As the crisis escalates, POTUS sends a new message to North Korea.
Q: What did you mean by “military solutions are locked and loaded”?
POTUS: “I think it’s pretty obvious. We are looking at that very carefully and I hope they are going to fully understand the gravity of what I said, and what I said is what I mean. So hopefully they will understand, Peter, exactly what I said and the meaning of those words. Those words are very, very easy to understand.”
Q: Any progress on the diplomatic backchannel?
POTUS: “Well, we don’t want to talk about progress, we don’t want to talk about backchannels. We want to talk about a country that has misbehaved for many many years, decades actually, through numerous administrations and they didn’t want to take on the issue and I had no choice but to take it on, and I’m taking it on. And we’ll either be very, very successful quickly or we’re going to be very, very successful in a different way, quickly.”
Q: Angela Merkel says she sees no military solution to a fight with North Korea, why is she wrong?
POTUS: “Maybe she’s speaking for Germany, let her speak for Germany. She’s a friend of mine, she’s a very good person, a very good woman, she’s a friend of Ivanka. Perhaps she is referring to Germany. She’s certainly not referring to the United States, that I can tell you.”
