So by now most of y’all have probably heard that last night North Korea detonated their new Hydrogen Bomb. This nasty new weapon is 10x more powerful than their old one and is CLEARLY a threat.
Well, unlike Obama, Trump takes threats VERY seriously. The second he saw what was going on, he made a HUGE action that Kim Jon Un is sure to feel.
Trump threatened to stop ALL trade with any country who trades with North Korea.
The President shot out a pair of tweets this morning that were very clearly directed at Kim and his regime:
I will be meeting General Kelly, General Mattis and other military leaders at the White House to discuss North Korea. Thank you.
‘The United States is considering, in addition to other options, stopping all trade with any country doing business with North Korea.’
Now it’s very important to note that this is also a VERY direct threat to China, who accounts for 85% of N. Korea’s trade.
While Trump’s detractors are claiming we “need” China, who accounted for $600 billion last year, the threat is actually a BRILLIANT strategy.
His attacks against the rogue state did not stop there, however. Heis tweets also called out South Korea for “appeasement” of the North and China for embarrassing themselves by association.
Some people may be upset over Trump’s tough talk on North Korea and their allies. Well, I tell em “Too Bad!” Our old attempts clearly failed or else they wouldn’t have nukes. Share this out if you think Trump’s trade threat is smart and Congress should fall in line.
