Trump was elected President by the American voters because he was not a ‘typical politician’. Trump was/is a businessman. President Trump has already shown the voters that he means business and he’s trying to follow through on his campaign promises. He’s also demonstrated to the world that same message.
Less than a week ago, he sent Syria and Assad a strong message – don’t use chemical weapons – or you WILL suffer the consequences. Then, he sent 59 Tomahawk missiles into Syria and hit one of their main airbases. Message sent and received.
In addition, he sent a strong message into Afghanistan. Telling the radical Islamic terrorists, we know where you are and we WILL find you and DESTROY you. Then, he sent a strong message and dropped the “mother of all bombs” – one of the largest non-nuclear bombs into the country, the MOAB. It was meant to destroy ISIS as they were gathering in their tunnels, moving weapons and forces, and planning for their upcoming spring attacks. Message sent and received.
Recently President Trump met with the President of China. In regards to North Korea, Trump said ‘North Korea is a problem. The problem will be taken care of.’ What he really meant was, if China doesn’t take care of the problem, we will. I have no doubt, that Trump will take care of business, that’s what the voters elected him to do. Trump said he would ‘Make America Great Again’ and take care of business. Message sent and message received.
H/T Fox News:
The ENTIRE U.S. Senate has been invited to the White House for a briefing Wednesday on the North Korea situation, amid escalating tensions over the country’s missile tests and bellicose rhetoric.
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Joseph Dunford and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats plan to provide the update to lawmakers.
It is rare for the entire Senate to be invited to such a briefing.
Spicer clarified that while the event will take place on the White House campus, it is technically a Senate briefing and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., is the one who convened it.
The briefing, first reported by Reuters, was confirmed after President Trump earlier spoke to the leaders of both China and Japan.
Trump spoke by phone with Chinese President Xi Jinping and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.
Xi told Trump that China strongly opposed North Korea’s nuclear weapons program and hoped “all parties will exercise restraint and avoid aggravating the situation,” according to Chinese broadcaster CCTV. Trump hopes China could increase pressure on its isolated ally instead of using military options or trying to overthrow Kim Jong Un’s regime.
Trump and Abe agreed to urge North Korea to refrain from provocative actions.
Meanwhile, U.S. commercial satellite images indicated increased activity around North Korea’s nuclear test site, while Kim has said that the country’s preparation for an ICBM launch is in its “final stage.”
South Korea’s Defense Ministry has said the North appears ready to conduct such “strategic provocations” at any time. South Korean Acting Prime Minister Hwang Kyo-ahn has instructed his military to strengthen its “immediate response posture” in case North Korea does something significant on the April 25 anniversary of its military. North Korea often marks significant dates by displaying military capability.
On Monday, Trump also had lunch with ambassadors of countries on the U.N. Security Council. Ahead of the meeting, Trump called for “big reforms” at the U.N. and criticizing its handling of recent events in Syria and North Korea – but said it has “tremendous potential.”
According to the Washington Times, President Trump told ambassadors from countries on the United Nations Security Council Monday that they were going to be busy tackling problems that the U.N. typically avoids addressing.
“You’re going to be very busy people over the coming months and years,” Mr. Trump said at the opening of a working lunch with the ambassadors at the White House.
You can certainly say that again!
“The United Nations doesn’t like taking on certain problems,” he continued, citing the Syrian regimes use of chemical weapons against its people. “I encourage the Security Council to come together to take action on all of these many threats.”
The President also spoke of the rising tensions with North Korea, calling the reclusive communist country “a real threat to the world.”
Earlier this month, President Trump told the public, “North Korea is a problem. The problem will be taken care of.”
That was when President Trump met with Chinese President Xi Jinping and said he would “work very hard” to help resolve the challenge. President Trump spent a lot of time with Xi a couple weeks ago in Florida.
So it looks like there will be some kind of action taken, either by China, Japan or others, and President Trump is breifing the entire Senate on the situation of North Korea involving not only Rex Tillerson, but also the Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis and others. So you know that this involves a national security matter.
The U.S. and Trump have expressed concerns over North Korea and it’s threats to attack the U.S. and it’s continued unlawful missile tests. So buckle your seatbelts folks. Things may get a little bumpy soon.
