≡ Trump Blames Bolton For Setting Back Nuclear Negotiations With N. Korea
U.S. President Donald Trump has accused former National Security Adviser John Bolton for setting back denuclearization negotiations with North Korea.
Trump told reporters at the White House on Wednesday that Bolton made some very big mistakes when he demanded North Korea follow the "Libya model."
The hawkish adviser had once advocated the "Libya model" that calls for North Korea to give up its nuclear weapons program before receiving any concessions in return.
Trump then reiterated his belief that North Korea has tremendous economic potential, adding that he would like to see something tremendous happen to the country.■
