United States President Donald Trump, prior to embarking on his Asian trip, warned China and other nations in an interview with Fox News’ Laura Ingraham that if the North Korean nuclear threat will not be resolved “warrior” Japan may take action.
Trump credited China for its efforts in resolving the North Korean nuclear threat, however, he warned that Japan which is very close to North Korea may take action if the nuclear threat will be left unresolved.
“We have one problem, a very big problem called North Korea. China has been helpful,” Trump said. “President Xi has been pretty terrific.”
“Most people have been saying whether its cutting the banking system off from North Korea, whether its cutting the oil down to North Korea, cutting supplies down – I must tell you North Korea is a thing that I think we will solve and if we don’t solve it’s not gonna be very pleasant for them and it’s not gonna be pleasant for anybody. But China is helping us,” he said.
“Japan is a warrior nation, and I tell China and I tell everyone else that listens, I mean, you’re gonna have yourself a big problem with Japan pretty soon if you allow this to continue with North Korea,” he noted.
