Joe Biden Commends Trump Administration's Handling of North Korea

Former Vice President Joe Biden offered up some praise for the way the Trump administration is handling North Korea’s nuclear proliferation.

During an interview with CBS’s Gayle King, who asked if there was anything he believed the Trump administration is doing well, Biden pointed to North Korea.

“I do think they are doing a decent job at the U.N. with regard to North Korea. I think there’s a number of things that are on the cusp of doing good things with,” Biden answered.

"This is the time to engage and have more diplomacy," he suggested.

Nikki Haley, United States Ambassador to the United Nations, has pushed hard for a tougher stance toward North Korea, and in September, the world body unanimously passed its toughest-ever sanctions against Pyongyang.

“Today, we are attempting to take the future of the North Korean nuclear program out of the hands of its outlaw regime,” she said at the time.

“Today, we are saying the world will never accept a nuclear-armed North Korea,” she added. “And today the Security Council is saying if North Korea does not halt its nuclear program, we will act to stop it ourselves.”

Biden’s praise didn’t last long, however. He quickly pivoted to Trump’s leadership style, saying the president is "devoid of any depth of knowledge in foreign policy," adding that he's "not a student of detail."

"I wish the president would be president and stop being so consumed with himself and his image,” Biden lamented.

It was predictable that Biden's praise wouldn't last.

“Underestimate Biden at your own peril”

I couldnt agree more. Hillary, the most obviously corrupt candidate in U.S. history, got 49% of the popular vote. A swing of less than 1% in WI, MI and PA and she is president.

The country is majority Democrat. If 0bama was able to run for a third term he would have won in a landslide. As creepy as he is Biden was a very popular VP. As unpopular as Trump is, I think Biden would trounce Trump. Bernie Sanders and Kamala Harris also could easily win.

I trust this is an indication of extreme weakness. There must be a preemptive annihilation of all of North Korea NOW. He has threatened us long after Trump warned him NOT to do it again( 6 times). We are now laughed at in North Korea as flaccid wimps. This must change quickly. Hot air is super cheap. It is about saving this country from an EMP that will destroy 95 million people over food and fuel fights. Why are we so weak in the face of absolute madness. Get off this China pipe dream and nuke these bastards before they nuke us !!

No, we could take out their nukes but only at the cost of hundreds of thousands of South Korean lives. Then who would be blamed? Trump.

So Joe, what did you and Obama do to constrain North Korea during your 8 years in power?

How was right about dividing Iraq into 3, one of them being Kurdistan.
