Trump to China: Lock down your border with North Korea until after I cut a nuclear deal with Kim Jong-Un
China's help could make or break Trump's plans for a nuclear deal, for which the president wants a Nobel Peace Prize
Trump needs China to pile the economic pressure on Kim Jong-Un to get the North Korean president to the negotiating table
The border demand could be Trump's way of taking Beijing's temperature on how much help they're provide in pressuring North Korea
Doubts remain about the June 12 summit in Singapore amid reports Trump may withdraw due to concerns he'll be embarrassed by its results

President Donald Trump demanded on Monday that China lock down its border with North Korea until he can cut a nuclear deal with North Korean President Kim Jong-Un.
The deal-making president wants an denuclearization arrangement with Kim signed on the dotted line and he needs the economic might of China to help make that happen.
China is the rogue state's largest trading partner with about 90 percent of North Korea's trade taking place with the Chinese. An economic chokehold from the Chinese is a key component in getting Kim's cooperation in any deal with the Americans.

I.must have missed something. When did DJT say he wanted the Nobel Peace Prize? Id rather have a Nolan Ryan bobblehead and it would be worth more. Any azzhat can get the Nobel prize. They even gave one to Barry O.
I guess they couldn’t get their good US reporter, Dave Martosko, to write such drivel.
Should he give the prize money to St. Jude’s or Shriner’s Children’s Hospitals?
If DJT gets it Id bet $10 he donates it somewhere and The places you mentioned are great ideas.
I don’t often agree with Graham, but in this case, he has it nailed. If we were not to follow through here, Trump’s Presidency would die and the world would shame him.
The Chinese don’t have the military stuff to challenge us, which is all the more reason why they will likely help out. They see Trump as one who can, with sanctions, make or break their economy. Notice how Trump is dangling the tariffs on steel and aluminum and this business of kicking GTZ out of our country. He has all parties by the short hairs, and they know it. And he’s done the same thing with Iran and the Euroweenies. They are probably easier, because they are so feckless and stupid!
Reads like fake news.
Here is a question - Why is North Korea America’s problem?
I nuclear armed country on China’s border, 400 km from Beijing seems like more of a threat to China than the USA.
I don’t think DJT much cares about that prize, nor do I think he’ll cancel any meeting due specifically the chance he might be embarrassed.
In the middle of a routine shopping coupon survey, I was asked, “Would I be happy if Trump won a Nobel Peace Prize?”
What were they seeking?
The Nobel Peace Prize lost its luster when they gave it to Obummer...and for what????
Can we lock down our border too? Wall. Now.
Shirley, you’re not serious?
“China is the rogue state’s largest trading partner with about 90 percent of North Korea’s trade taking place with the Chinese. An economic chokehold from the Chinese is a key component in getting Kim’s cooperation in any deal with the Americans.”
And why would the ChiComs want that to change?
