Pollster and political analyst Pat Caddell spoke with Breitbart News Daily SiriusXM host Alex Marlow on Thursday regarding Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s complaints about President Trump’s expectations for a Republican Congress and the president’s tough talk on North Korea.
“You’re dealing with an insane man, or kid, in North Korea,” said Caddell, adding he is “not so sure” President Trump’s rhetoric was out of line in trying to make Kim Jong-un understand.
“I’ve listened to the moaning and the groaning” about Trump’s rhetoric, added Caddell, “but he got a message, and now Mattis has followed up. They need to understand the consequences. It doesn’t mean [Trump] wants nuclear war.”
Caddell went on to say, “The answer is, we’ve had failed negotiations with North Korea since we had Clinton, Bush, and Obama. And the Clinton one was a particular joke because Wendy Sherman, the architect of the sell-out to Iran, was the woman who negotiated the deal that President Clinton told us was going to solve everything; it was a wonderful arrangement. And the North Koreans just blew right through it.”
