On national television this Wednesday, Donald Trump made intriguingly clear his desire to have Kim Jong Un disappeared — a task that, in his view, falls on China’s back.
When asked by CBS This Morning talk-show hosts about the best course of dealing with North Korea’s nuclear threat, Trump embarked on the following sermon:
I would get China to make that guy disappear in one form or another very quickly.
I mean, this guy’s a bad dude, and don’t underestimate him. Any young guy who can take over from his father with all those generals and everybody else that probably want the position, this is not somebody to be underestimated.
China has control — absolute control — over North Korea. They don’t say it, but they do. And they should make that problem disappear. China is sucking us dry. They’re taking our money. They’re taking our jobs. They’re doing so much. We have rebuilt China with what they’ve taken out.
Trump is saying all this despite his strong “love” for currency manipulating China. China, China, China, China…
For now, one can only wait with bated breath, tea, and a well-done steak for China’s response — if any.
