President Trump revealed Friday that former President Barack Obama told him that dealing with North Korea would be his biggest problem when they met after the election.
“A lot of good things are happening with respect to North Korea,” Trump said said during a joint press conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
“President Obama told me when I had the one meeting with him, he said that’s your biggest problem,” he continued, saying that Obama specifically pointed out North Korea as an issue. “That’s going to be the most difficult thing you have.”
“Honestly, I wish it was handled earlier, I wish it were handled by another administration, years ago,” POTUS added. “I’m not just talking about President Obama, I’d go back to any administration you want. But over the last 25 years–this should have been handled a long time ago, not now. This should not have been left for me to handle. But we will handle it. We’re handling it well.”
