BREAKING: After Meeting with Trump CHINA THREATENS To Bomb North Korea [VIDEO]
The Left wondered how President Trump would perform on the world stage, particularly when it came to potential acts of war. Well, they just got their answer.
The Trump Effect continues in international relations, as China gives an ultimatum to North Korea.
Recall during the campaign when then-candidate Trump said that China should intervene with North Korea, not the United States. President Trump’s meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping last week seems to have made an impact. China just threatened to bomb North Korea and its nuclear facilities if it crosses their “bottom line.”
During the entirety of Barack Obama’s presidency, North Korea has threatened the world. Obama never leveraged China, and he certainly offered nothing definitive to stop Kim Jong-Un from his idiocy.
However, President Trump’s meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping last week seems to have made an impact.
China just threatened to bomb North Korea and its nuclear facilities if it crosses their “bottom line.”
As Zerohedge reported:
In a harshly worded editorial titled “The United States Must Not Choose a Wrong Direction to Break the DPRK Nuclear Deadlock on Wednesday” Beijing warned it would attack North Korea’s facilities producing nuclear bombs, effectively engaging in an act of war, if North Korea crosses China’s “bottom line.”
The editorial in the military-focused Global Times tabloid, owned and operated by the Communist Party’s People’s Daily newspaper, said that North Korea’s nuclear activities must not jeopardize northeastern China, and that if the North impacts China with its illicit nuclear tests through either “nuclear leakage or pollution”, then China will respond with force.
“China has a bottom line that it will protect at all costs, that is, the security and stability of northeast China… If the bottom line is touched, China will employ all means available including the military means to strike back. By that time, it is not an issue of discussion whether China acquiesces in the US’ blows, but the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) will launch attacks to DPRK nuclear facilities on its own.”
This, as the editorial puts it, is the “bottom line” for China; should it be crossed China will employ all means available including the military means to strike back,” warned the editorial.
Furthermore, the op-ed declared:
North Korea will “not be allowed to have a government that is hostile against China on the other side of the Yalu River.” This implies that if and when the U.S. initiates strikes on North Korea, the Chinese PLA will likely send out troops “to lay the foundation” for a favorable post-war situation.
In a follow-up to his meeting with President Xi last week, Trump offered China a better trade deal if they solve the “North Korea Problem.”
Mr. Trump made clear to China last week that they needed to correct its trade imbalance with the United States immediately.
Sweetening the deal in an early morning tweet, President Trump said:
“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!”
Not backing down, Trump brought more pressure on China in a second tweet:
“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.”
After the U.S.-China meeting, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson revealed that China agreed with the Trump administration that “action has to be taken” regarding North Korea.
Tillerson told CBS’s Face the Nation:
“We’re hopeful,” he added, “that we can work together with the Chinese to change the conditions in the minds of the DPRK [Democratic People’s Republic of Korea] leadership. But I think there’s a shared view and no disagreement as to how dangerous the situation has become. And I think even China is beginning to recognize that this presents a threat to even to China’s interests as well.”
