President Trump Should Appoint Dennis Rodman As Ambassador To North Korea
China’s President Xi Jinping will be visiting the United States next week. This is an important meeting. North Korea and the massive trade deficit will undoubtedly be the key topics discussed between the two leaders.
It looks as if President Trump is already setting the stage for the meeting with new comments about North Korea. He’s told the Financial Times that he’ll solve this problem if the Chinese don’t.
The United States is prepared to respond to North Korean nuclear threats on its own if China fails to pressure Pyongyang, President Donald Trump said in an interview with the Financial Times on Sunday.
“Well if China is not going to solve North Korea, We will. That is all I am telling you,” he was quoted as telling the newspaper.
Trump will host Chinese President Xi Jinping this Thursday and Friday at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida, where the two leaders are expected to discuss North Korea, China’s ambitions in the South China Sea and trade.
“China has great influence over North Korea. And China will either decide to help us with North Korea, or they won’t,” he was quoted as saying in the paper.
Some are perceiving this to be a military threat against North Korea. I don’t believe this is the case. I think he’s using rhetoric to pressure the Chinese to help calm things down in the region.
Ultimately a negotiation needs to take place to end this ridiculous situation. The strategy of isolating North Korea for over 60+ years has not worked. A fresh approach is needed. I mean, who made this rule that we can’t talk to the North Koreans?
If I were Trump I’d ask Dennis Rodman to be the U.S. ambassador to North Korea. Rodman is good friends with Kim Jong Un. Not only would it be hilarious and piss everyone off, but it might actually yield better diplomatic results. I’m being serious. It can’t get much worse than it is right now.
Rodman was actually on the celebrity version of the Apprentice and endorsed Trump for President. He got fired from the show for spelling Melania’s name wrong lol.
