Trump-North Korea

UGA Expert on Trump/North Korea Rhetoric

Aug 11, 2017

Another day, another shot from the White House aimed at North Korea. The rhetoric has ratcheted up another notch as President Trump tweets “Military solutions are now fully in place, locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely.”

UGA Professor Andrew Owsiak says these are unusual times.

“It’s a little staggering that we keep trying to escalate the matter,” he said. “Most of the time if we use normal diplomacy things sort of settle themselves down. I think this would probably dissipate if we gave it a little time where we weren’t fanning the flames.”
