Donald Trump has a solution for every problem.
He has already proposed building a wall — or forcing Mexico to build one — to keep out hordes of immigrants fleeing violence in Central America from crossing into the country. He has also suggested banning Muslims from entering the U.S. because his followers are apparently scared of them, and his plans for terrorists go far beyond waterboarding and other notorious torture techniques.
Now, since the world is worried about North Korea’s nuclear weapons, the Republican presidential frontrunner has a rather concrete plan to tackle that issue as well: He will have China make country’s dictator, Kim Jong-un, “disappear.”
“I would get China to make that guy disappear, in one form or another, very quickly,” the White House hopeful said on CBS’s “This Morning.”
Although he didn’t clarify if “disappear” actually meant assassinated, he added, “Well, I’ve heard of worse things, frankly.”
“I mean, this guy’s a bad dude, and don’t underestimate him,” Trump continued, referring to the supreme leader with mentioning his name. “Any young guy who can take over from his father with all those generals and everybody else that probably want the position — this is not somebody to be underestimated.”
Trump, whose momentum in the presidential race recently jumpstarted in New Hampshire, also mentioned China has “absolute control” over North Korea, which is why they should “make that problem disappear.”
Well, first, it doesn’t seem suitable for presidents — or people who are desperate to become one — to talk about assassinating foreign leaders on live TV. Secondly, setting aside the fact that Trump is a fan of Kim Jong-un, does he really think killing and banning people is the only way to get things done in American politics?
If so, then it looks like everyone underestimated his penchant for violence and cruelty.
