“The [Trump] administration, I think correctly, has not taken military action off the table,” Tom Donilon told Politico.
Tom Donilon, the former national security adviser to President Obama, said that President Trump is correct to keep a military option on the table to deal with North Korea’s nuclear program during an interview with Politico’s “The Global.”
Politico’s Susan Glasser asked Donilon if he thought there were ways, short of military action, that will drive North Korea to the negotiating table.
Donilon admitted that he didn’t know the answer, but said America should pursue other avenues before military action.
“Given the substantial downsides of a military action against the North Koreans, and the administration, I think correctly, has not taken military action off the table, the United States and the international community should pursue agressively a set of measures short of military action that include pressure,” Donilon said.
Donilon concluded by laying out methods, other than military action, including increased sanctions and working with the Chinese that might prove effective in bringing the North Koreans to the negotiating table.
