Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton admitted Friday that it is time for a new strategy to counter the threat posed by North Korea.
A reporter asked Clinton how she would change the U.S.-North Korea policy if elected president, noting her policy as secretary of state under the Obama administration “clearly failed.”
“Amy, I think it’s clear that the increasing threat posed by North Korea requires not only a rethinking of the strategy, but an urgent effort to convince the neighbors, most particularly China, that this is not just a U.S. issue,” said Clinton, after meeting with a bipartisan group of security experts in New York City.
Clinton’s remarks come one day after North Korea detonated its fifth and most powerful nuclear test, which caused a 5.3 magnitude tremor. She and Republican nominee Donald Trump have traded jabs over national security ever since both candidates appeared on NBC’s “Commander-in-Chief Forum” Wednesday, the same day Trump announced his ten-point national security plan.
