Watters: North Korea’s Trying To See How Far They Can Push Trump

‘They’re  just trying to see what they can get away with’

WATTERS: "The ball is in the presidents court right now, they’re testing the presidents. I think what happened was he set a fire and fury. If you threaten us, you threaten our territories, you threaten any of our allies. They first fired a bunch of short-range missiles just to see what we were going to do, those fell into the water, we didn’t do much. Then they fire a missile right over Japan. Japan didn’t shoot down the missile because the missile wasn’t a direct threat. They could have, but they didn’t didn’t. North Korea did just enough to provoke us but not so much that we would have had to respond militarily. They’re like the kids in the backseat of a car on a car trip with the parents say if I hear one more word, we are pulling the car over on the highway. First they make a little noise and then they kick the seat. They're  just trying to see what they can get away with. That’s what they are doing now. They are seeing how far they can push the United States. We’ll see what the president does, more sanctions, more war games, more threats, will say."
