Trump Suggests China May Be "Exerting Negative Pressure" On North Korea Deal

Over the weekend, when discussing the latest provocative comments by North Korea's state media following Mike Pompeo's fruitless visit to Tokyo to push for further denuclearization by Pyongyang, and which Kim envoys slammed saying the country's "resolve for denuclearization" may falter, we said that "Trump's denuclearization plan will have to wait even as the risk that all progress achieved so far in bilateral negotiations collapses."

Why? Because recall that China was the real puppetmaster behind the Trump-Kim summit... and suddenly Beijing is not very happy with Trump (for obvious reasons), which means that China's response to Trump's trade war may emerge in the realm of diplomacy as Xi does everything he can to undo any/all progress achieved in talks between Trump and Kim, potentially sending relations between the US and North Korea back to square one.

We followed this up with a tweet saying that " China was the real puppetmaster behind the Trump-Kim summit, and now China is not very happy with Trump"

Now Trump himself is starting to realize that the culprit behind North Korea's newly belligerent attitude may be none other than China's president Xi himself, and in a quote said "I have confidence that Kim Jong Un will honor the contract we signed &, even more importantly, our handshake. We agreed to the denuclearization of North Korea. China, on the other hand, may be exerting negative pressure on a deal because of our posture on Chinese Trade-Hope Not!"

Of course, while there is no way to certify that China is indeed the catalyst behind N.Korea's sudden mood change, if Trump indeed is convinced that Beijing is pulling the strings, it is only a matter of time before he escalates significantly the trade war with Beijing, lobbing even more Tariffs China's way, as now he realizes that China's response is not merely economic but also diplomatic, and for Trump, denuclearizing North Korea remains the his crowning foreign policy achievement.

Certainly, the hanging "hope not" at the end of Trump's tweet makes it all too clear that China will be targeted further if North Korea remains steadfast in rebuffing Trump's demands.

Chinese made goods in the USA has been a huge factor in the devolution of our culture and economic strength.  Get that shit out of here.  Steep Tariffs Now, please.  USA should be more self sufficient as far as consuming good made in USA, as well as developing a net global trade surplus.  China can stuff their stuff where the sun don't shine. 

I don't care what happens them [China].  If they don't have a plan B, then that's their problem.  They should have thought about that before they became (at least partially) dependent on us as a customer, blew all kinds of bubbles, and rigged their phony economy with Potemkin cities.  They built their house of cards so if it falls they only have themselves to blame.

I realize it will take years to see the benefits of this, so we have to start ASAP!

Blow it out your tail Trumptard. America is an imperial bully with a walnut brain in the White House just trying to provoke everyone. Look at your country... Highest divorce rate, highest murder rate, most disability, most people in jail, most workplace absenteeism, gayblade marriage, transgender insanity, most murderers, racism on steroids, most drug addicts. This is what the US has to offer the rest of the world and nobody is buying your barbeque. Quit infecting the rest of the world.

A snorkeler's guide to life: 1) Always keep a thesaurus & diary of your favorite limmmericks on-hand, 2) When in doubt, project your own insecurities. 3) Create multiple online identities so as to magnify your own self-importance on forum threads, 4) It’s always preferable to choose self-loathing over self-achievement,  5) If you get cancer after decades of lifestyle mismanagement, do nothing & let it consume you, ….If you follow these five simple rules, and you’re still not a happy-productive person, let the snorkeler-god-troll know & he’ll craft you a cute, personalized poem as consolation.

Actually our down votes are because we think this is a stupid post on a site that used to be serious and have some humor in the forum.  

Considering you’ve been here a year, you may not know this site got popular because of the comment section being smarter than the great posts.

Now it’s clickbait to attract more people who hate Jews and people shitposting like you did.

You know how dumb your comment is, which is why you had to put a caveat on downvotes.

Of course they are! The art of the deal works both ways.

NK will get done but talks on Taiwan's future US ties and security arrangement is probably part of any overall Chinese strategy or wish list.

There's a reason 2 US destroyers just cruised through the Taiwan Strait. It's a gentle reminder and a bargaining chip.

Actually it was Germans and Americans that developed first rockets and nukes----just can't keep a secret, steal the technology or  sell to highest bidder.  Human nature and capitalism at work.   With tariffs being applied to Chinese imports and North Korean lowest labor rates, China is having second thoughts.  Inflow of  North Korean labor into China may be a better alternative.

What negative pressure? Orange "The fart of the deal" Jesus, foresaw all these Chink maneuvers, such is the level of his 44DD chess.

Trump will get a deal with North Korea, so says his cult followers. lol  Uncle Scam asking NK to give up nukes and enter a deal with the most duplicitous and Jew controlled double crossing nation on the planet, who have shown with Iran, what a deal means with them? 

#MAGA# Trumptards.

Hard to believe they're being dicks just on account of a little trade war.  You'd think they could separate concerns, you know, support us on these international deals and let trade be trade.

Wow, I sure hope Xi's a twitter follower!  I bet he's rethinking his foreign policy now after that 'Hope-Not'!!! These fuckers have never messed with a social media master before!  He might unfriend them on facebook next, or start unliking Xi's instagram pics!

no contract, just a joint statement.  the relevant section " Reaffirming the April 27, 2018 Panmunjom Declaration, the DPRK commits to work towards complete denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula. "

 

this is about as binding as the usa's commitment under the non-proliferation treaty to denukularize.

"We agreed to the denuclearisation of North Korea." (Trump)

Dumbhead, no you did not !!! 

You agreed on the denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula. You should have read the paper before you signed it.

 

For beginners: "Korean peninsula" includes: both South and North Korea
