As the tensions between Washington and Pyongyang grow, U.S. President Donald Trump called today (Tuesday) on China to intervene and put more pressure on North Korea. “North Korea is looking for trouble,” Trump tweeted. “If China decides to help, that would be great. If not, we will solve the problem without them!”

Trump clarified that he told Chinese President Xi Jinping that Beijing would get a better trade deal with the U.S. if it solves the issue with North Korea: “I explained to the President of China that a trade deal with the U.S. will be far better for them if they solve the North Korean problem!”
