This Is What Trump Said He'd Do With North Korea in 1999

In 1999, Donald Trump went on Meet the Press and discussed the already growing threat that North Korea posed. He outlined a negotiation-first strategy, saying, “First, I’d negotiate. I would negotiate like crazy.” And only if that failed would he use a military attack. In light of his Game of Thrones-esque comments yesterday about using “fire and fury,” does this mean President Trump feels like negotiations and diplomacy have failed? With only a third of the people polled saying they trust the president to handle this North Korean crisis, should he take a step back and listen to his own message from 1999?
