CIA Director: Trump's "Nuclear Button" tweet fits with strategy

CIA Director Mike Pompeo told Fox News Sunday's Chris Wallace that President Trump's tweet on nuclear buttons is "entirely consistent with what we are trying to communicate."


Highlights from the interview:

  • More on North Korea: "[I]t is our firm conviction that resolving this diplomatically is the correct answer. But this administration is prepared to do what it takes to ensure that people in Los Angeles and Denver and New York aren't held at risk from Kim Jong-un having a nuclear weapon."
  • Is Trump psychologically fit for office? "I'm not going to dignify that question with a response."
  • Has Michael Wolff's new book underminded U.S. standing in the world? "No."
