President Obama says Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump doesn’t know what he’s talking about when it comes to foreign policy and nuclear weapons.

At a press conference Friday following the Nuclear Security Summit in Washington, D.C., Obama was asked about Trump’s comments earlier in the week that South Korea and Japan might need nuclear weapons, despite current U.S. policy.

“The person who made the statements doesn’t know much about foreign policy or nuclear policy or the Korean peninsula or the world generally,” the president responded.

Obama noted that foreign countries are very aware of events in the presidential race and “Even in those countries that are used to a carnival atmosphere in their own politics,” the president said, avoiding the use of any specific names, “want sobriety and clarity when it comes to U.S. elections.”

Obama touted the current American agreement with Japan and South Korea as “one of the cornerstones of our presence in the Asia-Pacific region and it has underwritten the peace and prosperity of that region.”

“It has been an enormous boon to American commerce and American influence and it has prevented the possibilities of a nuclear escalation,” he added.

Trump stated earlier in the week that he would not rule out using nuclear weapons in Europe and called for a pulling back of U.S. support of NATO, BizPac Review reported Friday.
