President Donald Trump tweeted on Sunday that many of his predecessors “failed” to deal with with the nuclear threat from North Korea, but he’ll succeed where they didn’t. Celebrities are now reacting to the president’s latest comments about the situation. See Hollywood stars’ tweets below.

Trump tweeted Sunday, “Being nice to Rocket Man hasn’t worked in 25 years, why would it work now? Clinton failed, Bush failed, and Obama failed. I won’t fail.” Earlier in the day, the president also criticized Rex Tillerson for seeking a diplomatic solution regarding North Korea. “I told Rex Tillerson, our wonderful Secretary of State, that he is wasting his time trying to negotiate with Little Rocket Man,” wrote Trump. “Save your energy Rex, we’ll do what has to be done!”

Many people on Twitter were quick to point out that 25 years ago, Kim Jong Un would have been 8-years-old, and only took over power from his father six years ago. One celebrity making that point was Don Cheadle, who wrote, “How long do you think KJU has been… ugh.” Jemaine Clement stated, “Kim Jong Un was eight years old, twenty five years ago, dotard.” And Chase Crawford said, “Kim Jong-Un aka Rocket Man is only 33. So what you’re saying is Clinton and Bush did nothing to a child, and Obama didn’t start a war w/ [North Korea].”

Meanwhile, Alyssa Milano offered, “You will not distract us from: 1. The humanitarian crisis in Puerto Rico. 2. Key deadline on implementing sanctions against Russia is NOW.” Holly Marie Combs tweeted, “None of those people even remotely failed this country in the ways you have. Stop trying to start a war from your golf cart you bum.” Zach Braff similarly expressed, “From his golf course. Threatening global nuclear war. Lost by 3 million votes.” And Ed Asner conveyed, “By writing this tweet you have failed. By undermining your staff you have failed. By being an emotional infant you have failed.” Gossip Cop will update as more celebrities react to Trump saying past presidents “failed” with North Korea.
