Gen. John K. Singlaub, who served as chief of staff to all U.S. and U.N. forces in South Korea in the 1970s, tells Newsmax TV's John Bachman that President Donald Trump has acted "brilliantly" in dealing with North Korean and its leader Kim Jong-un.
Singlaub, now 95, was removed for his position in South Korea in 1977 after publicly criticizing President Jimmy Carter's plan to remove troops from the Korean Peninsula.
Singlaub has remained keenly focused on developments in Korea since then.
The former Army General had a long and storied military career, beginning in 1944 when with the OSS he parachuted behind Nazi lines, working with French Resistance fighters.
Trump, he said, "has demonstration since the election that he is capable of doing what is necessary to protect this country."
