“I told Rex Tillerson, our wonderful Secretary of State, that he is wasting his time trying to negotiate with Little Rocket Man,” United States President Donald Trump said in his Twitter account.
Trump was referring to North Korea leader Kim Jong-Un as little rocket man.
“Save your energy Rex, we’ll do what has to be done!” he added.
Trump made the statement after Tillerson said the US government has “lines of communication with Pyongyang.”
“We’re not in a dark situation, a blackout, we have a couple, three channels open to Pyongyang,”
Tillerson said. “We can talk to them, we do talk to them.”
Trump added that “being nice to Rocket Man hasn’t worked in 25 years, why would it work now? Clinton failed, Bush failed, and Obama failed. I won’t fail.”
