President Donald Trump bragged about preventing “a major war” with North Korea.
Moments after threatening a nuclear arms race with Russia, Trump explained how he believes his 2016 election saved the world.
“As part of a bold, new diplomacy, we continue our historic push for peace on the Korean peninsula,” Trump said. “Our hostages have come home, nuclear testing has stopped, and there has not been a missile launch in more than 15 months.”
Trump then offered his theory that the election of Hillary Clinton would’ve resulted in war between the nuclear powers.
“If I had not been elected president of the United States, we would right now — in my opinion — be in a major war with North Korea,” Trump argued.
“Much work remains to be done, but my relationship with Kim Jong-un is a good one,” he said.
