Trump: “a trade deal with the U.S. will be far better…”

The president then added, “North Korea is looking for trouble. If China decides to help, that would be great. If not, we will solve the problem without them! U.S.A.” Trump’s comments come several days after Trump hosted Chinese President Xi Jinping at his private Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida.

A Navy strike group was deployed by the U.S. military over the weekend to the Korean Peninsula in response to concerns over North Korean aggression. In response, North Korea’s foreign ministry on Monday slammed the United States for the deployment, saying it is prepared to defend itself against reckless acts of aggression.
