The Hill reports:
President Trump said Friday that he believes former President Obama would have gone to war with North Korea. Trump said Obama was “so close” to launching a war against North Korea over their nuclear ambitions. “I don’t want to speak for him but I believe he would have gone to war with North Korea,” Trump said of his predecessor during an impromptu news conference in the Rose Garden of the White House.
Trump claims Obama told him that he was “so close to starting a big war with North Korea.”
He then says Prime Minister Abe of Japan nominated him for the Nobel Prize, and also takes credit for “stopping the slaughter of perhaps 3 million people” in Syria. pic.twitter.com/6Pmn31eEWQ
