Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee offered a new strategy to President Trump to de-escalate the nuclear weapon threats from North Korea: send California Rep. Maxine Waters.

"[Trump] has dispatched Maxine Waters to NOKO to talk to Lil Kim," Huckabee joked about the Democratic lawmaker who frequently calls for Trump's impeachment.

"After 1/2 hour with her he will drink whatever he gave to his 1/2 brother," the tweet continued.

South Korea said in February, North Korea's leader ordered his half-brother Kim Jong Nam killed after the latter was assassinated with a chemical nerve agent in a Malaysia airport.
