A top defector has a chilling warning:
A senior North Korean defector has told NBC News that the country’s “desperate” dictator is prepared to use nuclear weapons to strike the United States and its allies.
Thae Yong Ho is the most high profile North Korean defector in two decades, meaning he is able to give a rare insight into the secretive, authoritarian regime.
According to Thae, North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un is “desperate in maintaining his rule by relying on his [development of] nuclear weapons and ICBM.”
So far, several US presidents, both Democratic and Republican, have seemed unable to do a thing about the conundrum and threat posed by North Korea. Now it’s Trump’s turn.
