(WASHINGTON EXAMINER) — National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster warned North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un should not be sleeping easily at night and said the evolving situation with the North Koreans constitutes a “grave threat” to the U.S.
McMaster made the remark in an interview Wednesday and emphasized that Kim has become increasingly isolated on the world stage.
“No, I think he should not be,” McMaster told MSNBC’s Hugh Hewitt. “Because he has the whole world against him, right? He’s isolated. He’s isolated on this. Since 1953 the Korean peninsula has been in a state of armistice. The war never formally ended and there’s been no aggression, no aggression from the United States, South Korea, any of our allies.”
