Trump Will Solve the North Korea Issue… With or Without China

President Trump is ready to move forward against North Korea, with or without the help of China…

Fox News reports: 

Trump made the comments in a Financial Times interview posted Sunday on the newspaper’s website.

“We will talk about North Korea,” Trump said. “And China has great influence over North Korea. And China will either decide to help us with North Korea, or they won’t. And if they do that will be very good for China, and if they don’t it won’t be good for anyone.”

Trump added that the United States could “totally” handle the situation in North Korea without China’s help. While China provides diplomatic and economic support to its neighbor, it claims that its influence over Kim Jong Un’s government is limited.

However, Trump also made clear again that he won’t reveal his foreign policy strategy through the news media.

“I’m not going to tell you (my plan). You know, I am not the United States of the past where we tell you where we are going to hit in the Middle East,” he said.

Still, Trump attempted to make clear he’s not an isolationist opposed to alliances.

“I do believe in alliances,” he said in the interview. “I believe in relationships. And I believe in partnerships. But alliances have not always worked out very well for us.”

The relationship between the United States and China has been uncertain since Trump’s election.
