Judge Jeanine: 'Wackadoo' Kim Doesn't Care About Economic Sanctions
Judge Jeanine Pirro expressed doubts today about whether "wackadoo" North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un can be swayed by economic sanctions.
Earlier today, speaking in Poland, President Trump said "severe" actions are on the table after Pyongyang tested an ICBM capable of reaching Alaska.
"I have some pretty severe things that we are thinking about. That doesn’t mean we are going to do it. I don’t draw red lines," he said.
Judge Pirro, host of "Justice" on Saturday nights at 9pm ET on Fox News, said there are very few good options available to President Trump.
If the United States strikes North Korea preemptively, it will likely lead to Pyongyang launching attacks on South Korea, she said.
"I don't think economic sanctions matter because Kim Jong Un could care less about his people," Pirro explained.
Trish Regan said China can still do more when it comes to economic punishment and going after Chinese banks.
"But do you think China has the ability to stop this wackadoo?" Pirro asked.
Meghan McCain said the U.S. is reaching a "come to Jesus" moment when it comes to North Korea's continued provocations, which have persisted through the Clinton, Bush and Obama administrations.
"Now we are reaching a point where we're gonna have to make some really tough choices," she said, adding that she has complete faith in Defense Secretary James Mattis and National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster, two former top generals.
"We're dealing with a completely irrational maniac," she said.
