President Donald Trump took to Twitter on Wednesday night and suggested that he had managed to convince Chinese President Xi Jinping to back him on the North Korean issue.
Had a very good call last night with the President of China concerning the menace of North Korea.

Jinping was responding to Trump’s decision to deploy the USS Carl Vinson in the Korean Peninsula.
“China insists on realizing the denuclearization of the peninsula … and is willing to maintain communication and coordination with the American side over the issue on the peninsula,” Jinping was quoted as saying by state media.
Finally, we have a leader that is tough on China and unwilling to let them dictate American foreign policy. Former President Barack Obama was so incredibly weak in Asia that he damaged American interests and is directly responsible for the rise of North Korea.
Unlike Obama, Trump is unwilling to let North Korea dictate foreign policy in the region and his decision to deploy the U.S. Navy clearly shows that. Now, with China backing the U.S., it is only a matter of time before the North Koreans back down.
