The White House Homeland Security Advisor Tom Bossert said President Trump's words about the escalating North Korea situation has not drawn any ‘red lines' at all.
"I think President Trump has wisely not drawn red lines, and he's wisely avoided them," Bossert began.
"In fact, the one red line that he did inherit from the last president, he enforced. And I think what's clear is the president wants to match his rhetoric with his actions and be as measured as possible but also, and I can't stress this enough, to look into the cameras and look into the eyes of the leadership in North Korea and say with no unwavering resolve, that it is unacceptable that they continue to pursue a nuclearized [intercontinental ballistic missile] program in the Korean peninsula and North Korea."
Bossert also said President Trump inherited this situation from the last three presidents, so the issue "transcends partisan politics."
In the last week, President Trump said North Korea would face "fire and fury" if they continued their provocative missile testing, and said the U.S. military was "locked and loaded" to respond to threats by the country.
