The relationship between the United States and #North Korea has not been a solid one for decades. After #Donald Trump decided to tweet out his latest thoughts about the issue, even more questions were raised .
During the 2016 presidential election #Kim Jong-un being somewhat mixed. At times, Trump would praise Kim for how he’s handled various situations, raising red flags with critics as to why any presidential candidate who speak fondly of a controversial dictator., Donald Trump made sure to take shots at many different world leaders. With the exception of Russian President Vladimir Putin, Trump was mostly critical of those who run major countries around the world, with his thoughts about North Korean leader
However, Trump would also come down hard on the country, which has only increased in the eight months since his inauguration. In recent months, the former host of “The Apprentice” has warned of possible military action against the country, which was evident after the United Nations voted to move forward with stricter sanctions on the nation. After North Korea fired a test missile near Japan earlier this week, Trump lashed out, which was seen during a tweet on August 30.
The U.S. has been talking to North Korea, and paying them extortion money, for 25 years. Talking is not the answer!

Taking to his Twitter account on Wednesday morning, Donald Trump hit back at North Korea, hinting at a potential military involvement. “The U.S. has been talking to North Korea, and paying them extortion money, for 25 years,” Trump tweeted out, before adding, “Talking is not the answer!” As expected, the reaction to the president’s social media post didn’t go over well with his critics.
Not long after Donald Trump hit back with his warning against North Korea, those who oppose the president were quick to give their thoughts. “If Talking isn’t the answer, then what is? The death of Millions? Nuclear fallout for decades? World War III?” one tweet rhetorically asked.
You have to think things through before your Tweet. Doesn’t Kelly tell you that?

“Here’s a question that Every Republican Must Answer…Why DON’T the rules apply to the Trump Administration?” another Twitter user wondered. “You know NOTHING of the institutional realities of global politics. You don’t know what to do about North Korea!” Bishop Talbert Swan tweeted out.

“Dialogue is the #1 way to solve problems.,.the hitch for you is that you have to know how to speak/articulate,” an additional tweet read. “Yeah. Your tactics have really improved the situation. If you want a nuclear war that is,” Holly Marie Combs wrote. The backlash continued against Donald Trump as questions surrounding the issue at hand remain unanswered.
