Trump again asks Xi to try and stop North Korea’s “provocations”

President Donald Trump discussed North Korea’s latest missile test with Chinese President Xi Jinping Wednesday and asked him to use “all available levers to convince North Korea to end its provocations.” China’s Foreign Ministry earlier expressed what it called “grave concern and opposition” to North Korea’s latest missile launch in an unusual rebuke of its neighbor and ally. Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang urged “all parties to act cautiously to preserve peace and stability.”
Trump’s first response to Pyongyang’s test of an ICBM that could reach any point on the US mainland, was: “We’ll take care of it.”

      Since he’s already asking Co maybe he can request a side order of egg rolls and a few potstickers.

    The President, his advisers, and the media are all following a policy that cannot prevail, because totally ignoring the religion of a deeply religious country is a sure path to failure. JU’CHE is now raising the 3rd and 4th generation of 24 million North Koreans, and Kim Jung Un is its 3rd Supreme Incarnation. NoKo is not a Budhist country, nor is it Moslem. It is a JU’CHE COMMUNE, and this commune is only interested in securing its own right to exist! It does not want to conquer the USA, nor does it want to conquer at all ! It only exists because of its ability to shut out the threatening world around it, specially the military and media power of the USA.
