Pence: "We have options" on North Korea

From Pence's interview:

  • Pence: "There was some talk two, three weeks ago by some commentators that the most powerful military on Earth doesn't have the ability to take action to defend our people. That's wrong."
  • CBS host: "I think it was Steve Bannon who ... was quoted saying that."
  • Pence: "We have options... The president desires a peaceful resolution ... It all begins when the Kim regime announces their willingness to abandon their nuclear and ballistics program."

Flashback: In an August interview, Bannon told the American Prospect, "There's no military solution [to North Korea's nuclear threats], forget it ... there's no military solution here, they got us."
