In an appearance on CNN on Wednesday, General Michael Hayden, a former director of the CIA, told host Chris Cuomo that recent developments with North Korea reflected President Trump’s diplomatic effectiveness.

“Should we see [China sending an envoy to North Korea] as a reflection of the president’s effectiveness?” Cuomo asked Hayden.

“I think the timing suggests that’s true,” the retired general responded. Hayden added that the president’s diplomatic strategy was a “breath of fresh air.”

The former CIA director told Cuomo that the president could continue to push China to ramp up pressure on Pyongyang to have Kim “tone down the rhetoric.”
