Despite the vehement promise of a strict response to curb the reckless nuclear boast of Kim Jong-Un’s North Korea by President Trump and the approved support of a sanction by the US from the UN security council, President Trump has shown a humane side in his approach, Politico reports.
Bruce Klingner, a senior intelligence officer, who works as a senior research fellow for Northeast Asia at the influential Heritage Foundation, speaking on Trump’s approach stated that Administration officials are saying privately that a preventive military attack is “not on the table”. Klinger added that the government is using a five-part strategy similar to what the Obama administration employed. One of such strategies includes the use of increased pressure on both North Korea and the other countries that facilitate Kim Jong-Un’s weapons program.
The strategy will incorporate increase in military readiness and capabilities, building up U.S. missile-defense capabilities.
“The Trump administration to date has not yet distinguished its policy toward North Korea from that of Obama. The president and others have been talking tough about sanctions, as Obama did, but have not yet followed through on any significant increase.”
