Blumenthal Refuses To Give Trump Credit on N. Korea: Any President Could Have Sat Down with Kim or His Father

‘The president needs to be encouraged to put together a diplomatic team’

EXCERPT:

BLUMENTHAL: "Any president could have sat down with Kim or his father, and presidents before Trump were tempted to do so is. President Clinton almost did so and decided to focus on the Middle East instead. And the unpredictability and volatility of these two leaders is one of the risks that is entailed here. So the President needs to be encouraged to put together a diplomatic team that can really lay the groundwork, do the plans and preparation. And that diplomatic team is very important."
