After VP Mike Pence’s fearless response to N. Korean aggressions earlier this week, the U.S. is trolling Kim Jong-un in his own waters.
“.. under President Trump, the shield stands guard and the sword stands ready”-VP Mike Pence [in chilling warning to N. Koreans]
Monday morning is still moving slowly but President Trump is up and at ’em. Japan military performed exercises with a U.S. aircraft carrier strike group heading to Korean waters.
Trump directly ordered the carrier group to conduct exercises near the Korean peninsula to let N. Korea know that we are not messing around anymore. N. Korea gov’t called it “extremely dangerous” and accused U.S. of wanting a “nuclear war to invade” .. N. Korea state run newspaper warned the U.S., saying they should “consider carefully any catastrophic consequence from its foolish military provocative act” Two Japanese destroyers have joined the U.S. carrier ship for exercises near the Korean peninsula. S. Korea is currently in talks to join U.S. and Japan.
Chinese president Xi Jinping, who seems to be 2-faced when dealing with Trump, discussed current situation in Korean peninsula and asked Trump to not escalate the tensions. Jinping is trying to stay center in the world’s most difficult balancing act (soothing Kim Jong-un & Pres. Trump both at the same time) China, despite being N. Korea’s ally, has called for N. Korea denuclearisation. Chinese gov’t ministry said Jinping-Trump call “reaffirmed the urgency of the threat posed by North Korea’s missile and nuclear programmes” while promising to “strengthen coordination in achieving the denuclearisation” of Kim Jong-un. Chinese gov’t also said they “hope that all relevant sides exercise restraint and avoid doing anything to worsen the tense situation” Trump’s UN ambassador Nikki Haley said U.S. exercises are not to “pick a fight” with Kim Jong-un but to put pressure on him. The U.S.’s UN ambassador Nikki Haley also said the U.S. won’t attack N. Korea “unless he (Kim Jong-un) gives us reason to”.. she added that the message to N. Korea is ‘don’t test, don’t use nucleare missiles, and don’t try and do any more actions’ according to UN ambassador Haley. She also added that “China’s helping really put” pressure on Kim Jong-un as well.
Trump has “heard of worse things” than icing Kim Jong-un! The video above shows that Trump’s rhetoric against N. Korea has been VOLATILE even before he became POTUS.
“We agreed to strongly demand that North Korea, which is repeating its provocation, show restraint. We will maintain close contact with the United States, keep a high level of vigilance and respond firmly.”-Japan PM Shinzo Abe
This situation is absolutely RED HOT & N. Korea is spewing some vicious, volatile rhetoric as the U.S. and Japan trolls them in the Korean peninsula. N. Korea’s last nuke test was an utter failure, but U.S. speculates the next nuke test to be soon. Therefore Trump is sending STRONG MESSAGE to them. We shall see what comes out of this OVER-THE-TOP SITUATION IN N. KOREA’s PENINSULA WATERS
