After threatening to annihilate
the entire nation of North Korea,
President Trump today put aside
war talk in favor of diplomacy,
announcing a new round
of economic sanctions.
Our new executive order will cut off
sources of revenue
that fund North Korea's efforts.
Trump also announced that
China is now taking new steps
to isolate Kim Jong Un.
China, their central bank has told
their other banks,
that's a massive banking system,
to immediately stop doing business
with North Korea.
And I've got to tell you there's
a real effort by the administration
to turn the temperature down here.
Nikki Haley made it clear there's a lot
more still to be done diplomatically.
