President Trump warned North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un of a potential regime change Thursday should both nation’s fail to secure a deal on his nuclear weapons program; saying the ‘Libyan model’ would “likely take place” if peace talks fail.
The President was speaking with reporters at the White House when he was asked if he planned on using the ‘Libyan model’ to disarm North Korea; saying that’s not the current approach but could occur should negotiations collapse.
“The Libyan model isn’t a model that we have at all when we’re thinking of North Korea,” said the President.
“If you look at that model with Gaddafi; that was a total decimation. We went in there to beat him. Now, that model would take place if we don’t make a deal most likely. But if we make a deal, I think Kim Jong Un is going to be very, very happy,” he added.
