Trump on North Korea: Ultimately I Will Do What’s Right for the World

“[North Korea’s] a world problem. And it’s a problem that has to be solved,” Trump told reporters on Wednesday.

President Trump told reporters on Wednesday that when it comes to North Korea and its continued nuclear weapons testing, he will do “what’s right for the world.”

Trump took some questions from reporters following a meeting with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in the Oval Office.

A reporter asked Trump about North Korea.

“I think I have a little bit different attitude on North Korea than other people might have,” Trump told the reporter. “I listen to everybody, but ultimately my attitude is the one that matters, isn’t it? That’s the way it works.”

Trump explained how he believes he feels stronger and tougher about North Korea than some people while reiterating that he listens to everybody on the issue.

“Ultimately I will do what’s right for the United States and, really, what’s right for the world,” Trump concluded. “Because that’s really a world problem. That’s beyond just the United States. That’s a world problem. And it’s a problem that has to be solved.”
