President Trump doubled-down on his message to North Korea, calling on Beijing to implement U.N. Security Council sanctions against the regime.

During his visit to the Great Hall of the People early Thursday, the president emphasized the need for global cooperation to reel-in Pyongyang.

The president also called on every nation — including Russia — to assist with diplomatic and economic pressure.

He stressed that a solution exists to ending North Korea’s nuclear ambitions, adding that all responsible nations must join forces.

“We agreed not to replicate failed approaches of the past, and there were many,” said the president. “We agreed on the need to fully implement all U.N. Security Council Resolutions on North Korea, and to increase economic pressure until North Korea abandons it’s reckless and dangerous path.”

President Trump then said he looks forward to many years of success and friendship with Beijing in solving world problems.

    Wonder how quickly President Xi would jump up from his fruit cocktail salad at the state dinner if Trump leaned over and told him a flock of Minuteman 3 missiles were inbound into N.Korea as he spoke.

      Probably pretty quick!

  • brandehhh

    Sooooo when are we blowing them up? Can I push the button?
    Kidding… because I would hit some other countries along the way.

    Trump proves:
    1. that one does not need to have political experience to be the president (as liberals believe).
    2. conservatism works (works fast, too).

    3. that one man with good sense can defeat ALL mainstream career politicians with their guns blazing.

    • Scotty

      4. That all liberals are habitual liars.

    This is the key to spanking that spoiled child in North Korea. Economic pressure must brought to bear on both China and Russia as they are the ones pulling the strings of this fat boy puppet. Even though both of these supper powers profit from U.S. trade, they have not let go of their old communist hatred of this country and use these insignificant like Korea and Cuba to spank who they still consider an enemy. You can throw Syria and Iran into this group of nations that are used to tweek the nose of the USA.

      The problem is because so many innocent North Koreans will die. Hopefully, President Trump can decapitate the North Korean leadership, thus preserving life on the Peninsula

    Telling the world to remember that America, with a population of 300,000,000 + (million) armed with the history and constitution of a free people who are armed and willing to fight our country’s enemies, foreign and domestic, and an armed military with the training, equipment, and experience to defend the richest, most evolved nation on the planet.

    President Trump has a portrait of Andrew Jackson in the Oval Office, but I think Donald Trump is closer to Theodore Roosevelt: bold, brash, patriotic, intelligent, natural leader, anti-establishment, and a supporter of military strength backing up diplomacy. Trump has already improved the US economy and could really unleash its potential if tax reform is implemented. As promised, he has crushed ISIS by common sense changes to rules of engagement. If he can build an economic/diplomatic coalition to bring peace to the Korean peninsula and/or settle the Israeli/Palestinian conflict (he calls it the ultimate deal), Trump would be Mount Rushmore material.

    • nfcapitalist

      Jealously throughout the federal government and fear in those who almost implemented sedition and insurrection on the anniversary of their Russian Revolution… dodged a bullet!

    • brandehhh

      ISIS is still around…. somehow we can’t get rid of those idiots. They multiply like rabbits.

      • Scotty

        More like cockaroaches.

          Or termites.

  • landy fincannon

    He retracted his stance on currency manipulation , why?

    • C B

      Here’s why he retracted . Its because China , in order to do business in the World , has been using U.S. Dollars , because nobody wants their currency . They give the play money that is worthless to the general population in their own Country . Canada is heading in that direction as many Country’s around the world adopt U.S. Currency as their own .

      • landy fincannon

        I must admit I find it funny that you referred to their currency as “play” money. What may I ask is fiat currency?
        I know we are worlds reserve currency, which has allowed to print like there is no tomorrow.
        For how much longer though?

    • uncommon sense

      Everything changed after inauguration.

      -China: no longer a currency manipulator
      -Military: no longer depleted
      -VA: no longer a disaster for veterans
      -Hillary: no longer subject to “lock her up”
      -Goldman Sachs (who he claimed owned Ted Cruz and Hillary Clinton): no longer bad, get top jobs
      -etc.

    TRUE LEADERSHIP in a world of politically correct DO NOTHING LIBERALS is quite refreshing.

    This is how leaders address and solve real world problems. Bring relentless pressure to bear until problem solved or GET A BIGGER HAMMER!

    King Obama, Clinton, and the Bush’s need to take note on effective leadership without going to war BUT if war is inevitable, then bring it on with the Wrath & Might that will serve as a warning to all future zealots this is NOT a path they want to travel!

      Well said!

      • Look on the back of a Dollar bill, right side. Its an Eagle with his head towards the olive branch in his right foot. in the left foot are the 13 arrows representing the 13 Colonies. Hence: Eyes on the Olive branch, Arrows at the ready.

        • FoolIggy

          Thanks. Just another example of the geniuses America’s founding fathers were and how they anticipated the LIBERALIZATION of any government NOT PROTECTED FROM ITSELF! Power always seeks more power and greed unless held in check!

          DRAIN THE SWAMP!
