We’re continually amazed how eager members of the Obama administration are to give advice on foreign policy after they, as Garry Kasparov so well put it, handed Trump “a half-dozen foreign policy time bombs.”
Susan Rice was at it again with an op-ed in the New York Times arguing that the Trump administration should learn to “tolerate” nuclear weapons in North Korea, and now Ben Rhodes, deputy national security adviser for strategic communications under President Obama, is back with even more advice of his own.
Funny how his advice also serves as a warning to the Trump administration not to tinker with the Iran deal he helped sell.
Trump's continued attacks on the Iran deal probably don't provide Pyongyang huge confidence about coming to the table. Just a thought.

This is a key point. Any chance of a deal with DPRK goes out the window if Trump cancels a nuclear deal that Iran is complying with. https://t.co/vN98Ml2wPt

What next? Is he going to offer his services to broker a nuclear deal with the North Koreans as well?
Hey look! A guy who helped give Iran nuclear weapons is lecturing us on international affairs! ? https://t.co/dLZ2JsJhki

Bill Clinton made a deal w/ the NorKs.
They ignored it & developed nukes anyway. https://t.co/Au0m9oJr2V

WE ALREADY HAVE A DEAL WITH NORTH KOREA, YOU FOOL!!
Good lord, these people think "deals" are the way to run things, but they mock Trump. https://t.co/YaRyCb1ClF

Until they comply with the current "Clinton Deal, no Nuke Weapons" there is no other deal on the table and nobody should offer them any https://t.co/85NdRO1Vii

At least we know pallets of cash won't be secretly shipped to NK as part of the "deal". https://t.co/JrwxmZr7gB
