North Korea on Monday threatened the U.S. with “thousands-fold” revenge for tough new U.S.-drafted sanctions approved by the United Nations Security Council over Pyongyang’s nuclear and missile programs. President Trump said Sunday night that he spoke with South Korean President Moon Jae-in about the sanctions, approved Saturday. Trump tweeted the pair were “very happy and impressed with 15-0 United Nations vote on North Korea sanctions.” The resolution bans North Korea from exporting coal, seafood, lead, lead ore, iron, and iron ore and prohibits countries from starting new joint ventures with North Korea. The sanctions are expected to cut North Korea’s $3 billion annual export revenue by a third.
