Trump Says He Would Act Unilaterally Against North Korea

Headlines Apr 03, 2017

President Trump will be meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping on Thursday at his Florida resort Mar-a-Lago—even though the meeting is unlikely to include any tee time on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago golf course. Xi has closed over 100 golf courses across China, where the Communist Party officially bans its members from playing the game. The Trump administration is currently not required to publish the visitor logs for meetings at private resorts, including Mar-a-Lago, although Democratic lawmakers have introduced a new piece of legislation, the MAR-A-LAGO Act, that would force him to do so.

In an interview with the Financial Times published Sunday, Trump warned he would be willing to take unilateral action against North Korea over its nuclear weapons program. Trump said, “If China is not going to solve North Korea, we will.” President Trump will host Jordan’s King Abdullah on Wednesday, the day before meeting with Chinese President Xi.
