President Trump has lost patience with China which he believes could resolve the North Korean crisis but instead does NOTHING but ‘talk’.
Trump took to Twitter on Saturday night to call out ‘foolish’ past American leaders who he believes allowed China to make enormous profits in trade while not helping with North Korea.
The Daily Mail reports,
Trump added that China could ‘easily’ solve the growing problem with the country, but instead all China does is ‘talk’.
The tweets were a response to Kim Jong-Un’s successful launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) Friday, causing experts to warn leaders the country can now hit major American cities.
Hours later, the U.S. then flew two B-1B bombers over the Korean peninsula in a show of force after the North Korean missile tests, the Air Force said in a statement on Sunday.
North Korea’s state television broadcast pictures of the missile test launch on Friday night, which was personally supervised by Kim.
The missile launch was intended as a ‘stern warning’ that the United States would not be safe from destruction if it tries to attack, the North’s official KCNA news agency said.
The test was also aimed at confirming the maximum range and other technical aspects of the missile it says was capable of delivering a ‘large-sized, heavy nuclear warhead.’
Had it been fired at a standard trajectory, the rocket could have reached Los Angeles, Denver and Chicago and would have even had New York and Boston within its sights, according to analysts.
The American B-1B flight, conducted on Saturday, was in direct response to the missile test and the previous July 3 launch of the ‘Hwansong-14’ rocket, the U.S. statement said.
The bombers took off from a U.S. air base in Guam, and were joined by Japanese and South Korean fighter jets during the exercise, according to the statement.
‘North Korea remains the most urgent threat to regional stability,’ Pacific Air Forces commander General Terrence J. O’Shaughnessy said in the statement.
‘If called upon, we are ready to respond with rapid, lethal, and overwhelming force at a time and place of our choosing’.
China, the North’s main ally, said it opposed North Korea’s ‘launch activities that run counter to Security Council resolutions and the common wishes of the international community.’
A foreign ministry statement added: ‘At the same time, China hopes all parties act with caution, to prevent tensions from continuing to escalate, to jointly protect regional peace and stability.’
