Susan Rice, Barack Obama’s former face of national security advising, actually suggested President Donald Trump’s course of action on North Korea should be one of silence and tolerance.
Specifically, Rice suggested Trump “tolerate” a nuclear North Korea.
Just sit down, shut up and tolerate.
Hey, wait a minute — wasn’t that pretty much Obama’s way of leadership? The kind that got us where we are in the first place?
Obama: Diplomacy at all costs — an epic fail. And yet that’s what Rice wants from Trump as well.
Breitbart has more:
Former President Barack Obama’s National Security adviser, Susan Rice, wants President Donald Trump to accept North Korea as a nuclear power.
“History shows that we can, if we must, tolerate nuclear weapons in North Korea — the same way we tolerated the far greater threat of thousands of Soviet nuclear weapons during the Cold War,” she wrote in a New York Times op-ed, criticizing the president’s “fire and fury” rhetoric in response to the escalating tensions between the two countries.
Rice urged Gen. John Kelly, White House chief of staff, to stop Trump, and she pointedly attacked Dr. Sebastian Gorka, the deputy assistant to the president.
“John Kelly, Mr. Trump’s chief of staff, must assert control over the White House, including his boss, and curb the Trump surrogates whipping up Cuban missile crisis fears,” she wrote.
Rice complained that Trump’s rhetoric was “unprecedented and especially dangerous” and that America would have to be cautious about its response to Pyongyang.
She defended Obama’s actions in response to North Korea, insisting that his administration put them “on edge” by conducting joint military exercises with South Korea and introducing more economic sanctions.
She urged Trump to continue the Obama doctrine on North Korea despite growing hostility from the country.
“Rational, steady American leadership can avoid a crisis and counter a growing North Korean threat,” Rice wrote. “It’s past time that the United States started exercising its power responsibly.”
