Trump to China: Help ‘Solve the North Korean Problem’ or ‘We Will’

”North Korea is looking for trouble,“ POTUS tweets

President Trump took to Twitter on Tuesday morning to threaten North Korea, writing the nation is “looking for trouble.” “If China decides to help, that would be great,” he continued. “If not, we will solve the problem without them!”

The tweet came less than a week after Trump met with China President Xi Jinping, and urged his country to halt North Korea’s missile tests and threats to use nuclear weapons.

North Korea recently said it will defend itself “by powerful force of arms” in response to the U.S. deployment of a Navy strike group to the Korean peninsula, according to the BBC.

The country has been testing missiles, angering South Korea and China in addition to the Trump administration. It is widely suspected that North Korea is working on a weapon that could reach the U.S.

Trump takes the nuclear threat from North Korea seriously and has sent ships to the region, but the nation feels the deployment showed “reckless moves for invading” had “reached a serious phase,” according to state news agency KCNA.

“We will hold the U.S. wholly accountable for the catastrophic consequences to be entailed by its outrageous actions… The DPRK is ready to react to any mode of war desired by the US,” the foreign ministry said in a statement, according to the BBC.
