Trump Criticizes China Over North Korea’s Nuclear Program
From the 7th Grade Global Connections Class
A state-run Chinese newspaper accused Donald Trump of "pandering to 'irresponsible' attitudes" Tuesday after the president-elect alleged that Beijing had failed to rein in North Korea's nuclear program. North Korean leader Kim Jong Un said on Sunday, January 3rd that his country was close to test-launching an intercontinental ballistic missile. Having conducted three nuclear tests during Kim's five years in power, he is pursuing the missile technology he would need to attack South Korea. North Korea also has designs on reaching the U.S. military outpost of Guam and the U.S. mainland itself.
