The morning after his aggressive speech to the United Nations, President Trump on Wednesday blamed his predecessors – and previous political rival Hillary Clinton – for North Korea’s nuclear weapons program.
“After allowing North Korea to research and build Nukes while Secretary of State, Crooked Hillary now criticizes,” Trump tweeted, using an insulting nickname for his Democratic challenger in the 2016 presidential election and her husband, former President Bill Clinton.

In his first address to the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday, Trump threatened to “Totally destroy” North Korea if the U.S. was forced to defend itself or its Asian allies.
Speaking on CBS’ Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Tuesday, Clinton described the speech as “Very dark, dangerous, not the kind of message that the leader of the free world should be delivering.” John Kerry, who succeeded Clinton as secretary of State, told MSNBC that Trump’s “Childish” rhetoric pushes away potential diplomatic allies.
