The problem with the Norks will be solved one of two ways The Chinese Dragon will take a bite out of  Kim Jong-un’s fat ass or President Trump will bomb it.

“… this sends a message.”

President Donald Trump voiced confidence Thursday that the problems of North Korea will be solved.

Trump was at a White House event when members of the press pool asked about the use of the largest non-nuclear bomb in the American arsenal during an attack in Afghanistan, and whether that sent a message to North Korea.

“Everybody knows exactly what happened,” Trump said in discussing the use of a weapon known as the “Mother of All Bombs.” As reported by Western Journalism, the U.S. used the mega-weapon to attack an ISIS hideout in Afghanistan.

‘What I do is I authorize my military. We have the greatest military in the world and they’ve done a job as usual,” Trump said. “We have given them total authorization and that’s what they’re doing, and frankly, that’s why they’ve been so successful lately.

“If you look at what’s happened over the last eight weeks and compare that really to what’s happened over the past eight years, you’ll see there’s a tremendous difference, tremendous difference. So we have incredible leaders in the military, and we have incredible military. We are very proud of them. This was another very, very successful mission.”

Trump then turned to the issue of North Korea, which appears to be on the verge of testing a nuclear weapon.

“I don’t know if this sends a message. It doesn’t make any difference if it does or not,” Trump said.

“North Korea is a problem. The problem will be taken care of. I will say this, I think China has really been working very hard. I’ve really gotten to like and respect, as you know, President Xi, terrific person, spent a lot of time together in Florida, he’s a very special man, we’ll see how it goes, I think he’s going to try very hard,” Trump said.

Trump has urged China to use its influence with North Korea to stop North Korea from advancing its weapons program.

America is also looking at stepping up sanctions against North Korea.

“We are exploring a new range of diplomatic, security, and economic measures in response to the North Korean regime’s continued provocations,” an administration official told Fox Business Network. “North Korea must understand that the only path to a secure, economically-prosperous future is to abandon its development of nuclear weapons, ballistic missiles, and other weapons of mass destruction.”

Sanctions reportedly under consideration are an oil embargo and a crackdown on companies or individuals who do business with North Korea, Fox reported.

“There’s a whole host of things that are possible, all the way up to what’s essentially a trade quarantine on North Korea,” Reuters quoted an unnamed official as saying.

The United States has also made clear its military is ready to respond if necessary

In addition to the aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson being assigned to the waters off Korea, Japan-based U.S. Air Force planes took part in a surprise exercise this week.

Fox News reported the 18th Wing conducted a vast surprise military exercise at Kadena Air Base in Japan that involved HH-60 Pave Hawks, F-15 Eagles, E-3 Sentries and KC-135 Stratotankers.
