National security adviser H.R. McMaster said on Sunday that China is now working with the United States to settle the North Korean issue.
“This latest missile test just fits into a pattern of provocative and destabilizing and threatening behavior on the part of the North Korean regime,” McMaster said on ABC’s “This Week” program.
“There is an international consensus now, including the Chinese leadership, that this is a situation that just cannot continue.”

It is strange to consider the Chinese and Americans working together against North Korea, but this is the world we live in now. The North Koreans have been trying to bully the West for far too long and it is time that they face consequences for their reckless actions. It is unacceptable to bully the world and to threaten armed conflict while your own citizens are starving at home. President Donald Trump needs to put the North Koreans in their place and teach them a lesson in humility.
