Trump administration ‘not playing around’ on North Korea

August 7, 2017

U.S Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley praised new sanctions against North Korea as a sign that the international community is seriously addressing the threat of Pyongyang’s nuclear weapons program.

“It is time for North Korea to realize, we are not playing anymore,” Haley said on Fox News’s “Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo.”

The sanctions largely target North Korea’s major exports such as coal, iron and seafood, Haley said.

“A third of their trade exports have been hit, and we basically gave them a kick in the gut with a billion dollars of sanctions that they are going to begin to feel right away,” she continued, adding that the measure “sends a really strong message.”

The U.N. Security Council unanimously passed a resolution on Saturday that would slap the new sanctions on North Korea in retaliation for its repeated ballistic missile testing and continued efforts to develop nuclear weapons.

    Trump has already warned that North Korean nut what will happen to him if he tries to attack us or our allies. We will turn the tigers loose and they won’t be paper tigers and have very sharp teeth to eat him alive.

  • WhiteFalcon says:

    The Useless Nations is useless. It is the individual countries that have to enact and carry out the sanctions. If that is not done and the individual countries don’t stick with the sanctions, there will be a nuclear war involving NK and the USA.This is the result of Bill Clinton’s folly of giving NK a nuclear reactor. This is what political corruption ultimately leads to.

  • Josh Parker says:

    The concern has been that the NoKo proletariates will attempt to essentially bum rush the Chinese border as refugees. The Chinese army will need to stand tough in that situation and not let any of them through, thereby forcing the would-be refugees to turn it around internally on the NoKo government and leaders as an overthrow of the NoKo government.

    1. Retired says:

      They are already at the border to keep them out .

  • American Me says:

    These new sanctions will probably hurt NoKo but the little Fat Kid will probably play it down and pretend they don’t.I hope they get the idea that we do not intend to be pushed around by them.I think he is too stupid to realize that any attack on us or our allies will bring massive destruction to NoKo.Our Bombers are ready and waiting for some bombing practiceLiving there must be hell with all the phony praise and stupid clapping that you see in videos.I believe it is all forced on the people.They are paying a high price just for living in the communist state.

      Where can they go China does not want them .China put guards at the border to stop them from entering .

  • Joseph R. Davis says:

    “Sanctions” imposed on a country only hurt the people at the bottom of the society. The ruler and the ruling class certainly aren’t going to suffer. And they are not going to allow any sort of revolution. So what do the “sanctions” actually accomplish?

    1. Bradley Scheffler says:

      What will be accomplished if they’re aggressive actions are ignored? The crazy dolt needs to realize the world nations won’t tolerate his crap without repercussions! The innocents of the country live like slaves , so they’re situation sucks already! They have to say enough and save themselves from within they’re own society. The safety of the rest of the world can’t be put at risk for them. You’re critical of sanctions, so if you have a better way to deal with that raving idiot I’m sure the world would like to hear about it! Finding fault without a better solution, is only opinion and we all know everyone has one and they all usually stink!

    2. I Seigel says:

      Nikki Hayley saying the US isn’t “playing around” with North Korea is kind of a joke. These sanctions are just more of the same. The US is basically leaving it up to China to enforce the sanctions, because we know that China and Russia have skirted the rules. It’s time for Trump and his team to actually come up with a PLAN and announce what it is.

      1. Retired says:

        Like what can be done ??? China has the upper hand by having most of our manufacturing . Is it war that you want ????

        1. I Seigel says:

          What I “want” is the plain-spoken truth. Not an answer from the President that North Korea “will be handled”. We’ve had WAY too many promises from Trump during his rallies that he’s going to do things – many in his first 100 days – and his actual record looks far different.

          1. Retired says:

            Well you are not going to get it from the media that Trump plays like a fiddle . Your elected are home go ask them why they are holding everything up till the 2018 Election . Look at the congress record as to how few appointments they have passed compared to other administrations . Put the blame where it belong CONGRESS.

          2. I Seigel says:

            Nice try.
            First of all, what does what anything you said here have to do with the North Korea situation.
            Secondly, the lack of progress on appointments is first and foremost on the heads of the administration, who only got around to nominating many of the people just 2 or 3 months ago. And the MANY unfilled positions in places like the State Dept seem to be intentionally left unfilled, so there are many fewer experts in Asian and Middle Eastern affairs now than there have been in the past. Why? To save money? Is government REALLY supposed to be run like a business, whose main aim is to amass profits for the owners?

          3. Retired says:

            You want fact and get some then don’t like them ??? Why nominate more if Congress wont do its elected job because Hillary lost , are you being deliberate stupid as to how things work . It is up to the Military leadership to come up with a way to handle North Korea and not Congress . Congress FU the Korean war as well as NOM . Why are we paying all those in the Pentagon when Congress tries to control everything ????

          4. I Seigel says:

            Congress “tries to control everything” because that’s how this country works. The military is ultimately controlled by civilians. Or don’t you understand that?

          5. Roy Fredrichsen says:

            Yes, a lot of the congressmen went home with a lot of unfinished business waiting. They MAY not be returning to Washington when their constituents get through voting to replace them.

          6. Retired says:

            Problem is it won’t happen till 2018 and right now most won’t show their face unless they can whine to the Media .

          7. Roy Fredrichsen says:

            Well, there is such a thing as a re-call election where an incumbent is replaced before their term is up with someone else.

    3. Roy Fredrichsen says:

      I still think that North Korean idiot needs the “Bin Laden” treatment so he dosn’t threaten the world again. Oh! Yes! It can be done.

      1. Joseph R. Davis says:

        But at what cost? And what if the replacement is worse? What then?

        1. Roy Fredrichsen says:

          I thought you were smart enough to figure THAT out, too. Was I wrong?

          1. Joseph R. Davis says:

            I don’t know any of the potential replacements personally. I could tell the Dear Leader how he could become the President of a united Korea, but THAT would probably piss off the neo-cons and war-mongers in OUR government, and I’d end up on somebody’s shit-list.
