Trump’s North Korea diplomacy looks troubled. It may not mean war
President Donald Trump’s attempt to make a “great deal” with North Korea over its nuclear program appears increasingly in peril as Kim Jong Un has ordered new missile tests and directed his country’s military “to cope with any emergency.”
“Nobody’s happy,” Trump said Thursday after North Korea launched short-range missiles for the second time in less than a week. On Friday, Kim told his forces to be on high alert after the U.S. seized a large cargo ship that was attempting to smuggle coal out of North Korea in violation of United Nations Security Council sanctions.
