Glenn: Trump wasn’t talking about nukes – but North Korea won’t know that

President Donald Trump promised “fire and fury” against North Korea Tuesday in response to Kim Jong Un’s continued threats of nuclear warfare.

A U.S. intelligence report leaked by the Washington Post said that North Korea has successfully built a miniaturized nuclear warhead. The regime is estimated to have as many as 60 nuclear weapons, and U.S. officials believe that North Korea has an intercontinental ballistic missile capable of hitting the U.S. mainland.

If North Korea continues to threaten the U.S., “they will be met with fire and fury and frankly power, the likes of which this world has never seen before,” Trump said Tuesday at an event in New Jersey.

On Wednesday’s “The Glenn Beck Radio Program,” Glenn Beck pointed out that Trump tends to speak with similar hyperbole for virtually every topic; however, the problem is that a dangerous foreign leader like Kim does not understand that.

Moments before he made the comment about North Korea, Trump spoke about the ongoing opioid crisis in the U.S. Fueled by prescription medications, drug overdose deaths have reached a record high. Trump called opioids a health crisis “the likes of which we have not seen.”

“As an American who has listened to Donald Trump for years, he’s not talking about nuclear war,” Glenn said, going on to recommend Trump follow the classic “speak softly and carry a big stick” advice.
