North Korea flaunts their nuclear weapons like a rapper flaunts their bling. And one has to wonder if a leader like Kim Jong-un should even be trusted to wield just powerful weapons of mass destruction.
Trump isn’t waging a full on attack on North Korea YET but he has sent the USS Carl Vinson aircraft carrier to the Korean peninsula in the case of any dangerous moves by the North Korean leader.
Adm. Harry Harris says that changing the course of the US ships was done “as a prudent measure to maintain readiness and presence in the Western Pacific.”
And since China is North Korea’s greatest allies, Trump is preparing to offer China a much better trade deal if they can deal with their neighbors. President Xi Jinping has yet to offer any promises about dealing with North Korea.
“North Korea is looking for trouble,” Trump tweeted. “I explained to the President of China that a trade deal with the US will be far better for them if they solve the North Korean problem,” he continued. “If not, we will solve the problem without them!”
This shows that Donald Trump doesn’t want to directly attack North Korea and would prefer if China could do their part in dealing with their neighbors. If China complies, they’d get a better trade deal with the US. If they don’t, Trump will take the North Korea situation into his own hands.
