"Our country has been unsuccessfully dealing with North Korea for 25 years, giving billions of dollars & getting nothing," Trump tweeted."Policy didn't work!"Our country has been unsuccessfully dealing with North Korea for 25 years, giving billions of dollars & getting nothing. Policy didn't work!- Donald J.

President Donald Trump suggested Thursday that North Korea is another mess he inherited from his predecessor. “We’re very angry at what he’s done, and frankly this should have been taken care of during the Obama administration.”

President Donald Trump expressed frustration that the previous administration did not take stronger action against North Korea . This didn’t take place under the Trump administration, this took place under the Obama administration. Many things took place that should not have been allowed.

"This should have been handled 25 years ago, it should have been handled 20 years ago, and 10 years ago, and five years ago," Trump told Fox News' Sean Hannity in an interview.

"It should have been handled by numerous - not just Obama, but certainly President Obama should have taken care of it. Now it's at a point where it's very, very far advanced," he added. "Something has to be done. We can't allow this to happen."

Kremlin calls for restraint after Trump comment on North Korea

  Kremlin calls for restraint after Trump comment on North Korea The Kremlin on Monday called for restraint on North Korea after U.S. President Donald Trump warned over the weekend that "only one thing will work" in dealing with Pyongyang, hinting that military action was on his mind. When asked what Russia made of Trump's comments, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told a conference call with reporters: "Moscow has called and continues to call on the parties involved in the conflict and on those who have anything to do with this issue to exercise restraint and to avoid any steps that would only worsen the situation.

President Donald Trump suggested Thursday that North Korea is another mess he inherited from his predecessor. “We’re very angry at what he’s done, and frankly this should have been taken care of during the Obama administration.”

In an interview with Reuters, Trump also said China could solve the national security challenge posed by North Korea “very easily if they want to,” ratcheting up “It’s very late. We’re very angry at what he’s done, and frankly this should have been taken care of during the Obama administration,” he said.

Tensions between the U.S. and North Korea have risen to new heights in the months since Trump took office. He has feuded with North Korean officials, and repeatedly threatened military action against the reclusive Asian nation.

During a speech before the United Nations General Assembly last month, Trump threatened to "totally destroy" North Korea, if it forced the U.S. to take military action. Days later, he warned that the country wouldn't "be around much longer" if it continued to threaten the U.S. and its allies.

Trump has also sought to pressure China, North Korea's only major ally, into doing more to rein in Pyongyang. But he has voiced frustration with Beijing at times, casting doubt on the country's ability to crack down on North Korea.

He told Hannity on Wednesday, however, that China has "been very helpful," praising Beijing's move to stop Chinese banks from doing business with North Korea.

Now China's been very helpful, I think," he said. "I think. Who knows? They seem to be very helpful. They cut off banking to North Korea, that's something they've never done before. They've cut down, way down, on the fuel and a lot of other things."

"We're going to see what happens," he added.
