Former Admiral Mike Mullen Warns Trump Is Taking Us Closer To A Nuclear War With North Korea Than We've Ever Been
Former Joint Chiefs Chair Admiral Mike Mullen had a stern warning about the reckless, disruptive and unpredictable rhetoric we've heard from Trump since taking office and what it could mean for the United States on ABC's This Week:
RADDATZ: Joining me now, former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff under Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama, Admiral Mike Mullen. Good morning, Admiral Mullen. Let me ask you right away how you would characterize the Trump presidency this last year?
ADMIRAL MIKE MULLEN: Right. I think it's been incredibly disruptive, certainly unpredictable in many, many ways. And what you talked about globally, Martha, certainly from those who is have been our friends for many years, ask questions about our commitments to them, to the region, to the leadership that we have exhibited over the last seven years and the institutions that we care about, and our enemies. Those that would do us ill seem to be able to take advantage of the uncertainty as well, and you mentioned both Russia and China, and my expectations that will continue to be the case for them as well as Iran and North Korea.
