There sure is a lot of news coming out of North Korea. I’m sure you’ve read that North Korea promotes that nuclear war could erupt at any time. Can anyone convince themselves that nuclear war is a good idea?

Vice President Mike Pence said we are going to “abandon the failed policy of strategic patience” when it comes to North Korea. That means not waiting for the situation to improve.

I’m sure there are things we could do about North Korea — it’s nuclear aims and missile tests — that we don’t even talk about. For example, a British politician recently said that he thinks the United States hacked into the North Korean missile system and caused the failed missile test a few days ago.

But who knew this would be the first major issue that President Donald Trump would face?

North Korea’s leader is probably insane, but he has intelligent people around him.

I’m very glad Trump has put people like Nikki Haley in charge at the U.N. I love seeing smart people freed up to do their job.

As always, please listen to the full audio clip for complete context.
