US president-elect Donald Trump chides North Korea and China on Twitter. He criticizes North Korea over its weapons development and China for not stopping
He tweeted “North Korea just stated that it is in the final stages of developing a nuclear weapon capable of reaching parts of the U.S. It won’t happen!
China has been taking out massive amounts of money & wealth from the U.S. in totally one-sided trade, but won’t help with North Korea. Nice!” (sic).
While North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un said in his annual New Year’s address that the nation’s plans for launching a missile are almost complete.
Former National Security Agency analyst John Schindler said Trump’s second tweet, in particular, was a big mistake, as China has been North Korea’s only ally but has, so far, sided with the United Nations against its neighbor on the matter of nuclear weapons.
