Trump: U.S. may stop trade with any country working with North Korea

22:20, 03 September 2017

U.S. President Donald Trump says that the United States will decide on new sanctions against North Korea, including stopping trade with any partner doing business with that country.


"The United States is considering, in addition to other options, stopping all trade with any country doing business with North Korea," he tweeted on Sunday, September 3.

What is more, ABC News announced with reference to White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders that Trump is scheduled to meet with his national security team on North Korea soon.

"President Trump [is] to meet with his national security team on North Korea today, White House Press Sec. Sarah Sanders says," ABC News tweeted.

"Asked if he would attack North Korea following its apparent nuclear test, President Trump says, 'We'll see,'" it added. 

As was reported earlier, U.S. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin said Sunday that he's preparing a sanctions package against North Korea that would cut off "all trade and other business," with the rogue nation following its overnight nuclear test, its sixth and most powerful, according to Fox News.

"I will submit new sanctions [to President Trump] for his strong consideration," Mnuchin said on "Fox News Sunday" after North Korea apparently detonated a hydrogen bomb. "There's much more we can do economically." Such a bomb is considered more powerful than any of the five nuclear ones North Korea has already tested. And it apparently triggered an artificial earthquake of at least a 5.7 magnitude.
