President Donald Trump pushed back Tuesday on the North Korean foreign minister’s claim that the president has declared war on North Korea, characterizing his remarks at the United Nations as a “reply” to Kim Jong Un’s provocation, “not an original statement.”
During a joint press conference with Spanish President Mariano Rajoy, Trump was asked about the foreign minister’s statement and threat that Pyongyang would shoot at U.S. planes flying in international airspace.
“The foreign minister said you have declared, effectively, war on North Korea, and the North Korean government has threatened to shoot down or aim at American planes flying in international airspace. I would like your reaction to that,” CBS News Chief White House Correspondent Major Garrett asked.
