Admiral James Stavridis (Ret), former Supreme Allied Commander at NATO and currently a member of the Carlyle Group, spoke with Brian Kilmeade about how it is key for the Trump Administration to keep pressure on North Korea through diplomatic pressure and if we solve the problem with North Korean denuclearization, it will be with the help of the Chinese. When asked about President Trump's National Security Adviser John Bolton telling The Brian Kilmeade Show that we are increasing our offensive cyber operations to counter Chinese and other nations cyber activates against the U.S., Stavridis said he is "precisely in agreement" with Bolton because "we need to go offensive because we need to create deterrents" to combat threats from foreign nations against, not only our national interests, but our allies as well.
