Trump uses Twit­ter to pres­sure China

The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS - — David Sherfin­ski

Pres­i­dent Trump on Tues­day said he re­cently tried to bar­gain with Pres­i­dent Xi Jin­ping of China over the North Korea sit­u­a­tion — but also pro­vided as­sur­ance that the United States will “solve” the prob­lem if China de­cides not to help.

“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!” he tweeted.

“North Korea is look­ing for trou­ble. If China de­cides to help, that would be great. If not, we will solve the prob­lem with­out them! U.S.A.” the pres­i­dent also tweeted.

Mr. Trump and the Chi­nese pres­i­dent held a high-pro­file meet­ing at Mr. Trump’s Mar-a-Lago re­sort in Florida last week.
