Rand Paul Agrees With Trump’s Inclusion of China on North Korea


By: Elias Atienza

Libertarian-leaning Republican Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) says that he agrees with President Donald Trump‘s decision to include China on the current tension going on with North Korea.

“They’re a socialist economy. They don’t produce enough food to feed themselves, sort of an inhospitable place, it’s cold and somewhat barren. I think that most of their food coming in from China, China could have some on their behavior,” Paul said at a medal ceremony in honor of late World War II veteran Otto Grosnik.

Paul also said that open dialogue is important and he believes the world can help reign in Kim Jong Un from making rash decisions.

This comes as Trump’s national security adviser said that there was an international consensus on North Korea’s provocation.

 “I think there’s an international consensus now, including – including the Chinese – that this is a situation that just can’t continue,” said H.R. McMaster on Sunday, just hours after North Korea conducted another failed ballistic missile test. Trump himself has highlighted China’s cooperation with the United States on Twitter.

There has been recent criticism within China itself over Beijing’s North Korea policy. Shen Zihua, considered China’s best-known historian on the Korean War, recently criticized North Korea in a speech that has not been censored by the Chinese government.

“Judging by the current situation, North Korea is China’s latent enemy and South Korea could be China’s friend,” Shen said, according to the New York Times. “We must see clearly that China and North Korea are no longer brothers in arms, and in the short term there’s no possibility of an improvement in Chinese-North Korean relations.”

This also comes as the United States is preparing to test their ability to shoot down missiles and have scheduled two tests in May according to CNN.
