Trump Hammers China As Tensions Rise With North Korea

President Trump on Wednesday slammed the increasingly profitable trade relationship between China and North Korea, two days after North Korea conducted a successful test-launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile

“Trade between China and North Korea grew almost 40% in the first quarter. So much for China working with us – but we had to give it a try!” Trump tweeted, minutes before he was scheduled to depart the White House for the G-20 summit in Europe.


Trump has implored Chinese President Xi Jinping to pressure North Korean leader Kim Jong Un with sanctions to get the missile tests to stop.

Trump also criticized the poor international trade agreements his predecessors have signed.
