Susan Rice Makes Disturbing Statement About Trumps “Fire and Fury” Comments

President Barack Obama’s former National Security Adviser, Susan Rice, wants President Donald Trump to accept North Korea as a nuclear power.

In an op-ed Susan Rice wrote for the New York Times, she criticized the president’s “fire and fury” rhetoric in response to the escalating tensions between the two countries, and urged Gen. John Kelly, White House chief of staff, to stop Trump:

“History shows that we can, if we must, tolerate nuclear weapons in North Korea — the same way we tolerated the far greater threat of thousands of Soviet nuclear weapons during the Cold War. John Kelly, Mr. Trump’s chief of staff, must assert control over the White House, including his boss, and curb the Trump surrogates whipping up Cuban missile crisis fears.”

Rice says Trump’s rhetoric is “unprecedented and especially dangerous” and America would have to be cautious about its response to Pyongyang.

Rice defended Obama’s actions in response to North Korea, insisting that his administration put them “on edge” by conducting joint military exercises with South Korea and introducing more economic sanctions.

Rice urged Trump to keep the Obama doctrine on North Korea despite growing hostility from the country saying:

“Rational, steady American leadership can avoid a crisis and counter a growing North Korean threat. It’s past time that the United States started exercising its power responsibly.”

 

Politico Reported: 

North Korea reportedly already possesses such weapons, Rice wrote. “The challenge is to ensure that it would never try” using them, she added.

Bombastic, bellicose rhetoric from the North Korean regime of Kim Jong Un is nothing new, Rice noted, but she said the president’s willingness to respond with bombast of his own has added a dangerous element to the equation. Trump said Tuesday that North Korea risked “fire and fury like the world have never seen” if it continued its threatening behavior.

“Either Mr. Trump is issuing an empty threat of nuclear war, which will further erode American credibility and deterrence, or he actually intends war next time Mr. Kim behaves provocatively,” Rice, who also served as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations under President Barack Obama, wrote in the Times. “The first scenario is folly, but a United States decision to start a pre-emptive war on the Korean Peninsula, in the absence of an imminent threat, would be lunacy.”
