— President Donald Trump is sending North Korea a fresh warning, calling it a "problem" country that "will be taken care of."

Trump commented on North Korea after he was asked about the U.S. military's decision to drop the largest non-nuclear weapon it has ever used in combat on an area of eastern Afghanistan.

Asked whether dropping the bomb sends a message to North Korea as it continues to pursue nuclear and other weapons, Trump said it makes no difference.

Said Trump: "North Korea is a problem, the problem will be taken care of."

Trump wants China to help contain North Korea, but in recent weeks he has signaled a willingness to handle the issue alone.

Trump and China's president discussed North Korea at a meeting last week in Florida.

    Because Obama did absolutely nothing for eight years. We were like a giant welcome mat for everyone to do as they pleased.

    This narcissist is truly frightening. He went from not wanting to police the world to "taking care of problems".
    Why on Earth did voters give him the keys to a war machine??
