As we learn more about President Donald Trump's negotiations with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, Fox News' Shep Smith is still having a hard time understanding the American strategy for managing the rogue nation.

For example, Trump boasted on Wednesday that "There is no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea," bewildering the host.

"Why would he say today 'the North Korean threat is over'? Saying something like that, it's kind of a... it just makes you wonder about everything," Smith said.

Gordon Chang, a foreign policy expert who sat down with Smith Wednesday afternoon, agreed.

"North Korea on Monday had enough fissile material for somewhere between, let's say, 20 to 60 warheads," Chang said. "They still have it today. They still have the same number of ICBMs."

Smith also noted that Trump adopted North Korean and Chinese rhetoric when talking about American military exercises with South Korea. 

"He called them 'war games,' which the North Koreans have been doing for the better part of 30 years!" Smith said.

"And he also called the 'war games' were provocative. That's North Korean and Chinese talking points. They're not provocative! They're defensive," Change said.
