united states president Donald Trump made another controversial remark on Twitter, this time targeting china over the recent North Korea ballistic missile issue.

In a recent report on CNBC, the president, on Saturday, vented on Twitter with regards to his frustration over China’s actions to mitigate the nuclear ordeals and actions of North Korea. China and the US both share billions of dollars in investments a year.

“I am very disappointed in China. Our foolish past leaders have allowed them to make hundreds of billions of dollars a year in trade, yet...

they do NOTHING for us with North Korea, just talk,” president Donald Trump tweeted on Saturday. “We will no longer allow this to continue. China could easily solve this problem!”

Last Friday, the report stated that NorthKorea tested a new ballistic missile that has the possibility of entering the U.S. mainland. This has been part of a series of missile tests that North Korea has launched for years now.

CNBC reported that the missile test has been condemned by several nations, including South Korea and Japan, but not entirely China. This has been the reason behind the controversial tweet by President Trump.

In another report on The Guardian, the North Korean state media named the missile test as a warning to the “US imperialists.”

US, China relations

Not only was President Trump involved in the exchange of verbal tirades but also US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.

Tillerson reportedly accused both China and Russia for working with North Korea, and bore responsibility for this “pursuit of nuclear weapons,” The Guardian pointed out.

He even referred to Russia and China as North Korea’s “principal economic enablers.”

The newspaper quoted a specialist in Chinese politics from the University of Chicago Dali Yang, to get insights on the context behind the tweet.

“Yang said Trump’s latest China tweets were partly a diversionary tactic to distract public attention from the Obamacare repeal failure and partly a negotiating tactic designed to increase pressure on Beijing on issues such as North Korea and trade,” The Guardian stated in the article.

The US president will have a state visit to China later this year. Reports clarified that the visit will not be affected, despite tensions between Washington and Beijing. However, the newspaper also stated that the East Asian nation should prepare for measure shifts with the Western superpower because of recent incidents.
