Trump Tweets He’s Considering To Stop All Trade With Any Country Doing Business With North Korea

One day after North Korea reportedly tested its 6th and most powerful nuclear test, President Trump tweeted a series of statements on Sunday about engaging in talks with military leaders at the White House to discuss North Korea, and more controversially, to consider the option of stopping all trade with any country doing business with North Korea.

Secretary Mnuchin, Secretary of Treasury and a member of the National Security Counsel, said on Fox News Sunday that its clear that North Korea’s behavior is completely unacceptable and explained he is composing a sanctions package to the president for his consideration that includes a provision that anybody who wants to trade or do business with North Korea would be prevented from doing trade or business with the U.S.

Mnuchin confirmed that President Trump wants to renegotiate a trade agreement with South Korea and receive a better economic deal which comes after the U.S. has installed a THAAD defense system in South Korea, has 28, 500 U.S. military personnel stationed in the country, and continues to engage in joint military exercises with South Korea’s military.

President Trump tweeted some criticism towards South Korea on Sunday when he described their interest in diplomacy towards North Korea as “talk of appeasement” that won’t work and insisted that they “only understand one thing.”

“South Korea is finding, as I have told them, that their talk of appeasement with North Korea will not work, they only understand one thing!” Trump tweeted.

Secretary of Defense James Mattis has supported a diplomatic approach towards North Korea in the recent past but after their 6th nuclear test on Saturday, he warned of a “massive military response” if the U.S. or its territories are threatened which occurred after he met with President Trump and a national security team at the White House.

“Any threat to the United States, or its territories, including Guam, or our allies will be met with a massive military response, a response both effective and overwhelming” Mattis said in a White House statement on Sunday.

Mattis explained that North Korea’s leader Kim Jong Un should heed the United Nations Security Council’s unified voice on August 5th in which they unanimously passed a resolution that sanctioned North Korea over its intercontinental ballistic missile testing and violations of UN resolutions.

The UN Security Council will meet again on Monday to discuss how to deal with North Korea’s 6th nuclear test.
