As tensions escalate between President Donald Trump and North Korea leader Kim Jong-un, a video clip has surfaced of the late Tim Russert interviewing Trump on "Meet the Press."  In the two-minute clip, Trump recounts to Russert how he'd handle a "sort of wacko" North Korea.

       "You say that you as president would be willing to launch a pre-emtive strike against North Korea's nuclear capability?" Russert asks.

       "First I'd negotiate," Trump says. "I'd negotiate like crazy." Trump then goes on to say that North Korean "is not a bunch of dummies and they are going out and developing nuclear weapons." He suggests military action will be needed if the negotiations don't succeed.

       "If that negotiation doesn't work, you better solve the problem now than solve it later, Tim," he says. "And you know it, and every politician knows it." 

       Trump goes on: "Jimmy Carter who I really like and he went over there and was so soft, these people are laughing at us."
