Rebeccah Heinrichs: Obama Holdovers at State Department Are Trump’s Biggest Foreign Policy Problem


Rebeccah Heinrichs, senior fellow at the Hudson Institute, spoke with Breitbart News Daily SiriusXM host Raheem Kassam on Wednesday regarding the Trump administration’s putting more sanctions on North Korea and whether they will work.

Speaking of the State Department in general, Heinrichs said, “If there’s any department that still needs its house cleaned from the Obama administration, it’s the State Department.”

She continued, “There’s still a lot of holdovers there, and I always thought that was going to be the biggest problem for the Trump administration, and that’s proving to be true.”

She went on to say the new sanctions against North Korea are not merely symbolic and are meant to put more pressure on the regime. She said the administration is trying to convince the Chinese that they are serious about North Korea, and while Trump may not be able to denuclearize North Korea by the end of his first term, she believes he will never allow it to acquire a nuclear weapon capable of reaching America.
