If North Korea had weapons that could reach the United States, Donald Trump will make sure they don’t use them. How exactly? That’s a secret.
Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway appeared on CBS This Morning and was asked about the nuclear test that North Korea conducted Friday.
How would a President Trump react if North Korea had nuclear weapons that could make it to the U.S.?
Conway’s short version: “North Korea and the rest of the word would know, Charlie, that President Trump and Vice President Pence aren’t messing around with anybody who is trying to threaten our lives.”
The anchors pressed on. But what would he do to make sure they knew the U.S. wasn’t messing around?
“He’s not going to reveal all of his plans and he’s made that very clear and maybe someone can ask him in a debate. But the fact is that this entire world would be put on notice that there’s a strong leader in the White House,” Conway said. “There would be no failures in Syria, in Libya, in Benghazi. There would be no Russia reset. There would be no advance of ISIS, who our own President called the JV team,” she continued.
But before the nuclear test Tuesday, Trump seemed to have a plan of his own — get China to deal with it.
“What I would do very simply is say, China, this is your baby,” Trump said during a campaign appearance in Virginia Beach, Va. “This is your problem. You solve the problem. China can solve that problem.”
The Clinton campaign did not immediately respond to a request for her plan.
