China Thinks Trump Tweets Way Too Much

But it's not just China that's ruining Trump's plans for North Korea. As Trump comes to realize China can not and will not resolve the North Korea issue for the US and its allies, he has become more critical of China in his tweets, and China appears to have had enough. Washington has normally requested an emergency UN Security Council meeting following Pyongyang's nuclear and missile tests, but it appears to be taking a different course of action as USA ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley says Washington will not be requesting an emergency meeting of the council this time around.

The U.S. president stressed that his administration will be able to take care of the North and can handle the situation.

"(The United States and North Korea) hold the primary responsibility to keep things moving, to start moving in the right direction, not China", China's U.N. Ambassador Liu Jieyi told reporters on Monday.

China's already backing out of that suggestion, saying they can't really do anything by themselves, and suggesting the USA and North Korea need to talk between themselves to solve the situation.

The top Democrat in the U.S. Senate called on President Donald Trump on Tuesday to block some Chinese investments in the United States to pressure China "to help rein in North Korea's threatening and destabilizing behavior". Chinese trade with North Korea actually increased 37.4 percent in the first quarter of this year compared to the same period in 2016.

"In a way, the threat of sanctions is still a way of trying to find a political solution". "China controls North Korea", he said in 2013. "The U.S. government should consider the potential for a Chinese response".

"I am very disappointed in China", Trump tweeted. "Trump's tweets have sparked concern in the USA and around the world".

Evanina, whose office oversees USA government efforts to counter spying and industrial espionage, declined to be more specific but noted that China's direct investment in the United States quadrupled from 2015 to 2016, to $48 billion annually. One of the considerations that the President must make in any CFIUS recommendation is whether the acquirer's subject foreign country is adhering to nonproliferation control regimes, including treaties and multilateral supply guidelines, and to global sanctions regimes.

Schumer called on Trump to use the inter-agency committee "to suspend the approval of all mergers and acquisitions in the U.S.by Chinese entities".

The discussions in Washington come as Pyongyang continues to test intercontinental ballistic missiles.

Applying more sanctions to North Korea is also problematic because of the effect they could have on North Koreans.
