Krauthammer: Trump’s ‘Absolutely Right’ North Korea Has Been Playing Us

‘People talk about the leader of North Korea being a madman and insane — well, I have come to the view that he is exceptionally clever’

RUSH EXCERPT:
KRAUTHAMMER: "They were actually getting real resistance from the United States. For 30 years, we acquiesced, we kicked the can down the road, we entered into negotiations under the Clinton administration, the Bush Administration, and Obama, all of which we were played. I think President Trump is absolutely right. We were played. People talk about the leader of North Korea being a madman and insane. Well, I have come to the view that he is exceptionally clever and rational in his own way, which is these people, he and his father and grandfather, have been able to play off the world with a very weak hand to survive -- to control the regime, and up until now, to be on deterred in their quest to become a nuclear power."
