White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus said Sunday on This Week that the Trump administration’s number one priority in Asia was undermining North Korea’s missile and nuclear program.

Priebus was defending President Trump’s phone call with Phillipines President Rodrigo Duterte after host Jonathan Karl raised the issue of Duterte’s human rights record.

“The issue on the table is North Korea, and there is nothing right now facing this country and facing the region that is a bigger threat than what’s happening in North Korea,” Priebus said.

“If we don’t have all of our folks, whether they’re good folks, bad folks, people we’d wish would do better in their country, doesn’t matter. We’ve got to be on the same page [on North Korea].”
