Former President Trump took aim at South Korea’s leader for failing to negotiate nuclear de-escalation with North Korea’s Kim Jong-un.
On Friday, Trump called President Moon Jae-in “weak,” after he claimed President Trump was the one not working fast enough to reel-in North Korea.
President Trump on South Korea’s President Moon Jae-in:
“President Moon was weak as a leader and as a negotiator, except when it came to the continued, long term military ripoff of the USA.”

The president doubled downed his criticisms, saying the only thing South Korea was successful at was a “long term military rip-off of the USA.”
After meeting with Kim Jung-un in 2018, North Korea and the U.S. kept diplomatic ties, which is important in promoting America’s interests, and our allies’.
