Gordon Chang to Newsmax TV: US Has 'Overwhelming Leverage' on Russia, China

By    |   Wednesday, 05 September 2018 04:49 PM

President Donald Trump can take advantage of China and Russia violating North Korea sanctions to “gain control over this situation again,” Daily Beast columnist Gordon Chang told Newsmax TV on Wednesday.

“The process has gotten beyond the United States,” Chang said. “We have been ignoring sanctions violations by the Chinese and the Russians since about the end of May.”

He added that “President Trump's goal was to create a one-shot opportunity for the North Koreans to do the right thing, so he wanted this friendly atmosphere. Now Kim Jong Un has taken advantage of that not to give up his weapons, not to have a change of heart, but actually to double down on policies that have failed for the long term. So I think President Trump’s got to go back to what made him so successful up to the end of May, which was his maximum-pressure campaign.”

According to NBC News, China has relaxed economic sanctions on North Korea, a move which “certainly increases Kim's leverage,” according to Chang, “because he's getting the money that he needs from the Chinese, from the Russians, and now from the South Koreans.”

He added that “the good news here is that we have such overwhelming leverage over Moscow, Beijing and Seoul that President Trump can gain control over this situation again,” if he’s willing to “ruffle some feathers”
