The New York Times’ national security correspondent David Sanger said that President Trump deserves “enormous credit” for getting North Korea to the negotiating table during an interview on CNN Tuesday.

North Korea announced on Tuesday that they will to hold talks with the United States on the possibility of denuclearization and that they would suspend their nuclear tests while those talks are underway.

“The imposition of truly deep sanctions, which the U.S. stepped out to enforce, I think, probably gave an additional motivation to Kim Jong Un to go realize that he had to get into some talks that would relieve that pressure,” Sanger told CNN. “I think President Trump deserves enormous credit for ratcheting up that pressure and making sure that these sanctions were real. There was no reason the Obama administration couldn’t have done that, and they didn’t.”
