Talk about the dream team! President Trump, Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley, and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson just conducted a meeting and held a press conference on the serious situation in North Korea. Watch the video below!
President Trump took the time to answer questions on North Korea and show the world that his administration is UNITED and that he is working tirelessly with other countries to find a solution to this international crises.
President Trump said of his conference:
“We had a very good meeting, we talked about North Korea, we’re all very unified, we have been from the beginning. This is something that has to stop, we all feel that very strongly.”
He continued by saying he will be speaking to the China’s president Xi Jinping, who he has been increasingly at odds with over their inaction with North Korea:
“I will be speaking to President Xi tonight, from China and we’re working very closely with China and with other countries.”
China has proven itself reluctant to cooperate, but President Trump is ready to have those hard conversations and pressure China into sticking up for the US against North Korea- already China has promised that it would not protect North Korea if the hermit kingdom attacked the US first.
When asked about our closer allies in the region, South Korea and Japan, President Trump emphasized that they were happy with the work the US has been doing so far:
“They feel more reassured with me than they have with other presidents from the past, because no one has really done the job that they’re supposed to be doing, and that’s why we’re in the situation we’re in right now. And it’s a very bad situation, a very dangerous situation, and it will not continue, that I can tell you. So I think South Korea is very happy, and I think Japan is very happy.”
When asked if a peaceful solution would be possible, President Trump replied:
Hopefully, it will all work out. Nobody loves a peaceful solution more than President Trump, that I can tell you.
“But this has been going on for many years. It would have been a lot easier to have solved this many years ago before they got in the position that they’re in right now, but we will see what happens.”
President Trump has a tough job on his hands. North Korea has been able to build up its weapons arsenal for years because politicians continued to turn a blind eye to this rogue nation. Now President Trump has to pick up the pieces.
Luckily he’s a tough guy, and with his team standing by his side, we can feel confident that America will be safe.
