North Korea's Kim Jong Un was not ready to make serious concessions, therefore, President Trump was smart to walk away, according to Cliff May, President of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies.
“Walking away rather than trying to get political points by making a deal that looks good but really doesn’t address all the issues,” he told FOX Business’ Liz Claman on Thursday. “Sometimes it is better to not make a deal than not get what you want.
May said the U.S. must apply “maximum pressure” on North Korea to weaken their economy and create a more secure region.
“The United States need cooperation from other countries like China but in the end it will make for a safer environment for everyone," he said.
