South Korean President Moon Jae-in during an interview with the New York Times said that former President Donald Trump “failed” on the issue of the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. “He beat around the bush and failed to pull it through,” Moon said, referring to Trump’s efforts to get North Korea to give up its nuclear weapons.

Trump did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Insider.

During his single term in the White House, Trump met with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un several times to discuss denuclearization. His interactions with Kim were historic — Trump was the first sitting U.S. president to enter North Korea.

But by the time Trump left office, the rogue state had not given up a single nuclear weapon. North Korea has also continued provocative missile tests.
