Conway: Trump Will Be Tough On Countries Developing Nuclear Weapons

On Tuesday, incoming Counselor to the President, Kellyanne Conway,

appeared on ABC’s Good Morning America to discuss President-elect Trump’s policies.

ABC’s George Stephanopoulos asked Conway about recent reports that North Korea is close to successfully testing an intercontinental ballistic missile with nuclear capabilities that could potentially reach America.

“President Trump will be very tough on those who are developing nuclear capability. It’s been a big disappointment to many Americans including the President-elect that Iran, for example, was emboldened and increased it’s nuclear capabilities through one of the deals that this administration has put forward,” Conway informed Stephanopoulos.

Stephanopoulos pressed Conway on what President Trump would do to prevent North Korea from expanding its nuclear capabilities.

Conway told Stephanopoulos, “He’s putting North Korea on notice through this tweet and through other statements that this won’t happen. He as President of the United States wants to stand between them and their missile capabilities, which experts say could be deployed to reach Seattle almost immediately.”
