His tweets have the power to shape international relations, send stock prices up — or down — and galvanize the American public! President Donald Trump tweeted Friday morning that North Korea has been “behaving very badly” and that China has done little to contain the threat.
“North Korea is behaving very badly,” Trump said in the tweet. “They have been ‘playing’ the United States for years. China has done little to help!”
The tweet comes as Rex Tillerson, Trump’s secretary of state, is on a trip to Asia.
While Tillerson was in South Korea on Friday, he said that if North Korea elevates “the threat of their weapons program to a level that we believe requires action,” a military response from the US is an option on the table.
