Trump says China could solve the North Korea 'problem'
WASHINGTON - President Donald Trump says that if China wants to solve "the North Korean problem, they will."
Trump has been pressing China both publicly and privately to ramp up pressure on Pyongyang over its nuclear ambitions.
In a tweet Friday morning, Trump said that China is the "economic lifeline" to North Korea. He conceded that "nothing is easy" regarding the tense situation with Pyongyang.
Trump's recent meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping focused in part on North Korea's nuclear aims.
China is very much the economic lifeline to North Korea so, while nothing is easy, if they want to solve the North Korean problem, they will— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 21, 2017
