TRUMP: THE US CONSIDERS “STOPPING ALL TRADE WITH ANY COUNTRY DOING BUSINESS WITH NORTH KOREA”

US President Donald  Trump has reacted to the recent North Korea nuclear test with another twitter storm. “The United States is considering, in addition to other options, stopping all trade with any country doing business with North Korea,” the US president claimed in one of the tweets. He added that South Korea’s “talk of appeasement will not work” and that the North Korea government “only understand one thing!”. “North Korea is a rogue nation which has become a great threat and embarrassment to China, which is trying to help but with little success,” he said. Trump also said that he will have a meeting with “General Kelly, General Mattis and other military leaders at the White House to discuss North Korea.” These words correspond with the recent Trump’s claims that “talking is not the answer” in the case of the North Korea nuclear program. However, “talking” is the only thing that Trump has done successfully over the issue. Donald J. Trump ✔
