Trump: 'Patience is over' with North Korean regime
At USA Today| by Oren Dorell
President Trump and South Korean President Moon Jae-in on Friday called for a combination of pressure and dialogue to counter North Korea's growing nuclear threat.
"The era of strategic patience with the North Korean regime has failed," Trump said. "And, frankly, that patience is over."
Trump called on countries around the world and regional powers to join the U.S., South Korea and Japan in implementing sanctions on North Korea.
The U.S. demands "the North Korean regime choose a better path — and do it quickly — and a different future for its long suffering people," Trump said. "Our goal is peace, stability and prosperity for the region. But the United States will defend itself, always defend itself, always, and we will defend our allies."
