North Korea a top priority as Trump attends first G20
President Trump on Wednesday seemed to cast aside the idea that the U.S. could work with China to bring an end to the North Korea crisis after the regime’s test of an intercontinental ballistic missile.
Despite suggesting a day earlier that China could “put a heavy move” on Pyongyang to “end this nonsense,” the president on Wednesday highlighted trade between North Korea and China in suggesting the two countries are too close.
“Trade between China and North Korea grew almost 40 percent in the first quarter. So much for China working with us — but we had to give it a try!” Trump tweeted.
