The fact that President Trump would put the blame on the United States instead of China's outrageous behavior is a slap in the face to millions of hardworking Americans anxious about whether their job will be here tomorrow.
It fears triggering a collapse of the North's totalitarian regime that could cause an influx of refugees into northeastern China and culminate in a USA -allied unified Korea on its border.
"But I don't blame China", he said. While this was a call for the resumption of the Six-Party Talks, the Trump administration has never publicly mentioned a framework for negotiations with North Korea and seems to be more focused on a bilateral solution between the USA and the North.
In a November 8 analysis previewing Trump and Xi's meeting, the New York Times quoted a senior administration official as saying that Trump was planning "to call on Mr. Xi to cut off oil exports [such as crude oil] to North Korea, at least temporarily; to close down North Korean bank accounts in China; and to send home tens of thousands of North Koreans who work in China".
The assessment came after the leaders of China and the United States vowed to improve coordination over the reclusive state, with US President Donald Trump calling on Beijing to work hard to stop Pyongyang from realising its nuclear ambitions.

USA intelligence believes, however, that North Korea's underground nuclear test site at Punggye-ri has been damaged due to underground seismic activity and could be unsuitable for use.
"There are still some financial links that exist that should not under those [UN] resolutions". Though the White House had previously indicated that President Trump would not visit the heavily fortified demilitarised zone separating North and South Korea, plans had been in the works for him to make an unannounced visit on Wednesday morning.
"There is no disagreement on North Korea", he said.
"At the centre of this military cult is a deranged belief in the leader's destiny to rule as parent protector over a conquered Korean peninsula and an enslaved Korean people".
Conor McGregor Goes Berserk And Starts On Referee
It's likely that McGregor will face some sort of punishment from the athletic commission, but it is unclear what that will be. The Bellator 187 event took place Friday evening in Dublin and is scheduled to air on tape delay in the USA on Spike TV.
He also promised to do more to curb North Korea's nuclear ambitions, warning against "nuclear blackmail".

Trump and the first lady were greeted by Chinese and American dignitaries as soldiers stood stiffly at attention and a band played martial music.
