Expert: Trump should keep pressure on NK, ignore Dems

North Korean missile launch Aug 2017A Pentagon advisor and military strategist contends that if Democrats had their way, the United States would continue to delay taking appropriate action against North Korea – until it's much too late.

Recently, a group of Democratic Senators led by Sen. Edward Markey (D-Mass.) sent a letter calling on President Trump to lead a vigorous, sustained American diplomatic campaign to defuse the current Korean Crisis and resolve its underlying causes without starting a war.

In fact, the left-leaning Senators called for direct negotiations with North Korea’s rogue government in Pyongyang. Furthermore, the Democratic leaders accused President Donald Trump of using inflammatory rhetoric that they say is bringing the United States dangerously close to a war on the Korean Peninsula.

Family Research Council National Security Senior Fellow Bob Maginnis insists that the commander-in-chief is boldly taking care of foreign relations with the militant North Korean regime – something former President Barack Obama failed to do.

"Yes, the president is leading with diplomacy, but at the same time, he's making it clear that we're prepared to use a big stick – if absolutely necessary,” Maginnis asserted. “The Democrats would have us [sit around and wait] to a flaw delay – until it's much too late."

The security expert stressed that the Trump administration is just not going to sit around idly and tolerate an existential threat against America.

"And we may be forced to take military action – in spite of the Democrats foot dragging,” Maginnis warned. “And keep in mind [that] Barack Obama weakened the military. He made the current circumstance with Pyongyang, I think, worse by being more conciliatory toward them than he should have been."
