Trump: If Needed, U.S. Will Act Unilaterally On North Korea

Trump If Needed U.S. Will Act Unilaterally On North KoreaPresident Trump is ready to find a way to deal with the threat of a nuclear North Korea on his own, he told the Financial Times. “If China is not going to solve North Korea, we will,” he said. “That is all I am telling you.” Chinese President Xi Jinping is scheduled to visit the United States on Thursday, and Trump is expected to pressure him to do more about North Korea, which experts fear could soon develop a long-range nuclear missile capable of hitting the U.S. mainland. “China has great influence over North Korea,” Trump said. “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.” He told the Financial Times he could “totally” succeed if forced to take Pyongyang on solo, but did not elaborate on any possible actions.
