During his speech at a rally for Gop Senate candidate Luther Strange, Trump repeated his “Rocket Man” jab at Kim, and blamed former Democratic presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton for rising tensions between the U.S. and North Korea. “Rocket Man should’ve been handled a long time ago by Clinton,” Trump said, adding that “I’m not gonna mention the Republicans,” apparently letting George W.
