President Donald Trump has had enough of North Korea’s “continued belligerence” and said its actions were destabilizing during a telephone call with Chinese President Xi Jinping on Sunday, the White House said.
U.S. officials have had increasing concern over North Korea’s nuclear and missile tests.
North Korea continues to threaten America, along with the rest of the world, and Trump and his administration are giving it right back. Rumors are going around that an assassination of Kim Jung Un could be coming soon because of his threats.
Trump is stepping up to the plate as the entire U.S. Senate is set to convene. As reported by Reuters, top Trump administration officials will hold a rare briefing on Wednesday at the White House for the entire U.S. Senate on the situation in North Korea, Senior Senate aides said on Monday.
There will be a briefing at the White House by Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and General Joseph Dunford, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the aides said.
It is highly unusual for the entire 100-member Senate to travel to Capitol Hill, and for those particular four top officials to be briefing them.
Earlier today, Trump spoke with Chinese President Xi Jinping and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on the phone to discuss the tensions with and threats from North Korea. They all agreed preventing North Korea from taking action will most likely come in the form of threatening military force.
