Following several threats from North Korea, President Donald Trump is voicing ideas on how to quell their hostility.
Trump strongly encourages China to get involved in the situation.
Per The Sun:
Speaking from the Oval Office in an interview with the Financial Times, the US president gave China an ultimatum: “Well if China is not going to solve North Korea, we will. That is all I am telling you.”
Trump certainly recognizes the potential threat:
In a separate interview with the publication, deputy White House national security adviser KT McFarland warned: “There is a real possibility that North Korea will be able to hit the US with a nuclear-armed missile by the end of the first Trump term.”
The US sees North Korea as its most pressing threat after former president Barack Obama warned Trump about the substantial advancements Pyongyang has made with their nuclear weapons and long-range missiles.
In Trump’s ultimatum, he affirms China’s responsibility to handle the increasing aggression from North Korea.

“If they do, that will be very good for China, and if they don’t, it won’t be good for anyone.”
