"Presidents and their administrations have been talking to North Korea for 25 years, agreements made and massive amounts of money paid hasn't worked, agreements violated before the ink was dry, makings fools of US negotiators", he said in a pair of tweets.

North Korea is now slowly emerging as a threat to the entire human community as the country continuously violates opposition from all corners regarding their nuclear experiments and tests. Only after missiles overflew Japan twice did the Trump administration reply with a flight of B-1B strategic bombers near North Korea's borders, instead of the usual flight path over South Korea.
