Strategy for North Korea

The Trump administration is dialing up pressure on North Korea with a new round of economic sanctions.


The back and forth between President Trump and North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un have reached a new level after both leaders have also been trading personal attacks and nicknames. The tensions between these two are certainly escalating, and the President is now going after sources of funding for the regime. The new U.S.  sanctions announced after President Trump’s speech at the United Nations will try to make it more difficult for the Kim regime, going after anyone carrying out trade with North Korea. There are even some signs that china may be backing the U.S. position. However, there are also growing concerns that the North may be on the verge of another missile launch or nuclear test.
