Bill Clinton publicly admitted he had some “regrets” this week surrounding North Korea’s nuclear weapons program; saying he “had a chance” to end the program towards the end of his presidency but ultimately failed.
The former president was speaking with NBC’s ‘Today’ show when he was asked to comment on President Trump’s upcoming summit with Kim Jong Un, saying “I had a chance at the end of my presidency — I kind of regret this now, but I would do the same thing again [if] faced with it.”
“I would do the same thing again [if] faced with it — to end their missile program, but I would have had to go to North Korea,” he added. “But I couldn’t do that and finish the Middle East peace… And Arafat begged me not to go and then backed out on his promise.”
“In these deals, you have to make a compromise, and so the test that the Americans should have when it’s over is: If both sides do what they promise to do, will we be better off? If the other side doesn’t, can we get out of this without more harm?” added Clinton.
