Tensions in Asia continue to build like the stress along a fault line in the ground. In time, that tension will result in a destructive incident unless it can be de-stressed beforehand. President Trump is seeking China’s help in de-stressing the tension surrounding North Korea. He also warned China that if they would not help, the US will do whatever necessary to de-stress the tension.
President Trump on Tuesday said North Korea “is looking for trouble” and vowed to get the murderous regime of dictator Kim Jong-Un under control with or without China’s help.
Trump sent the warning in a pair of tweets just days after he met with Chinese President Xi Jinping. China traditionally has acted as a counterweight on North Korea, helping to moderate some actions of the isolated country. Trump indicated a favorable trade deal could await China if they stepped up pressure on North Korea; however, Trump also appeared ready to reign in the provocative nation on his own.
“I explained to the President of China that a trade deal with the U.S. will be far better for them if they solve the North Korean problem!” Trump tweeted.
