On Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends” Saturday morning, Democratic Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz analyzed the U.S.’s situation with North Korea by reviewing President Donald Trump’s handling of the threats from the communist dictatorship. In his review, Dershowitz points out Trump has more credibility than his predecessor Barack Obama, given how the former president improperly handled the Syria situation.
In his review, Dershowitz says the following:
“One hopes that the president is not doing what President Obama did years ago when he created a red line with Syria, and then it failed to comply. I think that probably President Trump at this point has more credibility. I suspect he’s believed because he’s so unpredictable. We saw it today that the North Koreans responded in kind. So, it’s hard to second guess. Some presidents have taken the position of speak softly and carry a big stick. That was Teddy Roosevelt. Other presidents have spoken forcefully and loudly. It really depends on the situation.”
“So, I’m going to wait and see how it plays out before trying to second guess. What I don’t like is Congress coming in now and trying to pass legislation precluding the president from taking military action if necessary. That actually blunts any presidential impact and I think it interferes with the president’s right as commander-in-chief to make decisions affecting the — affecting the national security of the United States. So, these are tough questions, difficult times. I think we need to take a deep breath and wait to see how it plays out.”
Last week, Dershowitz discussed special counsel Robert Mueller’s decision to impanel a grand jury in D.C. for the Russia probe, and how that was “important.”
“It gives the prosecutor the power to indict in the District of Columbia, which is a district that is heavily Democratic, and would have a jury pool very unfavorable to Trump and the Trump Administration,” Dershowitz told WABC radio host Rita Cosby. “So it gives the prosecutor a tremendous tactical advantage.”
