Vice President Mike Pence announced President Donald Trump’s plan for North Korea earlier this week.
Pence made it clear that the time for patience is over and that the United States will challenge North Korea if required.
“The president’s made it clear (that while) we seek a peaceable solution here … the era of strategic patience is over,” Pence told CBS News host Charlie Rose.
“For more than a quarter of a century, the United States has negotiated, had talks, waited patiently,” he continued. “All the while we’ve seen the regime in North Korea continue its headlong pursuit of nuclear weapons and a ballistic missile program. And the president said that’s over.”
Pence said Trump has already started engaging with U.S. allies in the region “to economically and diplomatically isolate North Korea.”
“We have word of China turning back coal shipments from North Korea,” he added. “We have word of them beginning to reduce the amount of commercial travel that exists (with) North Korea.”
“And in (the) actions the world has seen the president take in Syria and Afghanistan, President Trump in a very real way has restored the credibility of American power,” he said. “And they know that we are prepared to defend our allies.”
