Ambassador John Bolton isn’t fooled by the sudden civility of Kim Jong Un and his supposed desire to play nice. He says Kim is lying, he’s attempting to buy himself enough time…
John Bolton points out that North Korea is very close to achieving “their dream of the past twenty-five years or more, being able to deliver thermo-nuclear warheads on target in the United States. They’re very close and they don’t want anything that would interfere with them crossing that finish line.”
Shannon Bream asks, “If they’re that close, why in the world would they agree to now halt the program, to give it up completely? It just doesn’t logically make any sense.” Bolton replies, “Because they’re lying,” and that “they want to buy time, 3 months, 6 months, 12 months, whatever it is they need to get across the finish line.”
Bolton predicts “it could either be a long and unproductive meeting or a short and unproductive meeting,” dependent upon the posturing of Kim Jong Un. Shannon Bream plays a clip of Marco Rubio predicting it is a ploy on the part of Kim in which will portray himself as being cooperative to the world and President Trump as uncooperative, persuading them to back off of sanctions.
Bolton says the only win for the United States and President Trump is “If he follows through on what he’s been saying consistently. It shouldn’t surprise anybody that he agreed to meet with Kim Jong Un, whether you like it or not he’s been saying it for a long time.”
He says, “So the question is, whether by having this meeting and saying in effect at the meeting, this is the way I would propose that he do it, “I’m glad to be here to talk about denuclearization. So tell me what ports American ships should sail into, what airports American cargo planes can land at so we can load your nuclear weapons program onto those, as soon as beginning next week.”
Bolton says, “Now if Kim thinks that by saying denuclearization he’s saying, ‘Well, we’ll phase out this and we’ll slow down that and we’ll do the other thing, that’s not denuclearization. This is a substantial change in the way the US has approached this, but as I say, if you look at it as a way to foreshorten the amount of time that we’re going to waste in negotiations, that will never produce the result we want, which is Kim giving up his nuclear program, I think that’s a good thing.”
“I think we’ve got to focus on the proximity,” says Bolton, “of North Korea to getting deliverable nuclear weapons. It is unacceptable that they’ve reached that point. And rather than have the low-level negotiations rising to the mid-level negotiations rising to the high-level negotiations finally rising to a summit meeting, that’ll be two years from now. They’ll have deliverable nuclear weapons. That we cannot allow.”
