War with North Korea appears more imminent by the hour.

President Trump and Japanese Prime Minister Abe spoke today in regard to the North Korean nuclear problem and agreed to take “concrete action” against the Hermit Kingdom.

Also, China has shot back at President Trump’s blistering weekend tweet in an attempt to absolve itself of any blame in the matter.

“I am very disappointed in China. Our foolish past leaders have allowed them to make hundreds of billions of dollars a year in trade,” President Trump tweeted Saturday. “Yet they do NOTHING for us with North Korea, just talk. We will no longer allow this to continue. China could easily solve this problem!”

Those are the words of President Trump in a tweet voicing his disappointment in the Chinese for allowing the North Korean nuclear problem to reach the extremely dangerous point it has reached.

In the tweet, President Trump included a veiled threat that China will pay for its inaction with restrictions to its trade relationship with the US.

In a Powdered Wig article from yesterday, I agreed with President Trump. The Chinese have been exploiting the US from a trade standpoint for decades. And they can’t even take care of a piss ant dictator next door who is threatening to kill millions of innocent people with his developing nuclear program that is threatening the entire region and the United States?

The Chinese could have solved this problem long before Crackpot, Jr. was on the throne.

From the New York Post

President Trump spoke on Monday with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe after North Korea’s latest firing of an intercontinental missile that could strike the US and the leaders concluded that the regime “poses a grave” threat to the region.

A White House statement on the call said Abe and Trump “agreed that North Korea poses a grave and growing direct threat to the United States, Japan, the Republic of Korea, and other countries near and far.”

Trump “reaffirmed our ironclad commitment” to defend its allies Japan and South Korea from any attack “using the full range of United States capabilities , ” the statement said.

At the same time, China shot back at Trump after the president said he was “disappointed” that the country wasn’t doing enough to rein in North Korean President Kim Jong Un’s weapons programs.

China’s foreign ministry said Pyongyang’s nuclear ambitions did not happen because of China and the world community needs to cooperate to find a solution.

“All parties should have a correct understanding of this,” it said in a statement to Reuters.

And China’s Vice Commerce Minister Qian Keming said North Korea’s military provocations and trade between the US and China are distinct issues.

“We think the North Korea nuclear issue and China-US trade are issues that are in two completely different domains. They aren’t related. They should not be discussed together,” Qian said at a news conference on Monday.

Trump has tried to enlist China, a major trading partner with North Korea, to influence the regime to curb its weapons development.

On Saturday, Trump’s frustrations led to a series of tweets.
