Trump would consider letting Japan and South Korea build nuclear arsenals

“If the United States keeps on its path, its current path of weakness, they’re going to want to have that anyway with or without me discussing it, because I don’t think they feel very secure in what’s going on with out country,” he said of Japan and South Korea.

Trump said the U.S. cannot always “be the policeman of the world” and said North Korea “probably” has nuclear weapons

“And, would I rather have North Korea have them with Japan sitting there having them also? You may very well be better off if that’s the case,” he said.

“We have a nuclear world now,” he said, while also criticizing the U.S.’s agreement with Japan.

“If we are attacked, they don’t have to do anything,” he said. “If they’re attacked, we have to go out with full force … That’s a pretty one-sided agreement, right there.”
