Hours after North Korea claimed to have successfully tested a hydrogen bomb, Republicans in the United States were quick to point the finger – at President Obama.
According to Pyongyang, government scientists have accomplished a longtime goal of developing a miniaturized nuclear device. The United Nations and a slew of world leaders have condemned the test as a violation of international law, and are threatening to impose new sanctions.
While the White House has already expressed doubt that Pyongyang’s claims are 100% accurate, US Republicans appear to have already reached a verdict: true or false, this is President Obama’s fault.
“If this test is confirmed, it will be just the latest example of the failed Obama-Clinton foreign policy,” presidential hopeful Marco Rubio said in a statement. “I have been warning throughout this campaign that North Korea is run by a lunatic who has been expanding his nuclear arsenal while President Obama has stood idly by.”
