Hillary Clinton stopped by The Late Show with Stephen Colbert where she discussed President Trump’s speech to the United Nations. “I thought it was very dark, dangerous, not the kind of message that the leader of the greatest nation in the world should be delivering,” Clinton said.
Clinton’s “dark” descriptor might have had something to do with when Trump said, “The United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we'll have no choice but to totally destroy north Korea.”
Clinton went on to say that the best course of action should have been diplomacy. “What I hoped the president would have said was something along the lines of, ‘We view this as dangerous our allies, to the region, and even to our country. We call on all nations to work with us to try to end the threat posed by Kim Jong-un.’"
Trump sent out a tweet out on Sunday calling Kim Jong-Un “Rocket Man” and then he double downed on the name during his speech at the UN saying, “Rocket man is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime.”
Clinton also thought that name calling was maybe not the best idea either when she continued, “And not call him ‘Rocket Man’ the old Elton John song, but to say, clearly, "We will not tolerate any attacks on our friends or ourselves." But you should lead with diplomacy. You should lead with the commitment of trying to avoid conflict, however you can.”
