Trump addressed the issue on Twitter Monday evening saying, quote, “North Korea just stated it is in the final stages of developing a nuclear weapon capable of reaching parts of the US. It won’t happen.”
Trump is also taking aim at China, saying they although they have benefited from economic ties with the United States, they’ve done nothing to help control North Korea.
Meanwhile, Trump is preparing to to meet US intelligence officials to discuss the alleged Russian interference in the presidential election. The Obama administration expelled 35 Russian diplomats accusations of hacking.
