Gorka on NKorea: Trump 'Not Pleased' With China

President Donald Trump is not happy with China's inaction against North Korea, presidential deputy assistant Sebastian Gorka said Thursday. 

"The president is not pleased. You look at his recent tweets in the last four days, Gorka told Fox News' "Fox & Friends" program. "We had great hope after Mar-a-Lago that Beijing would realize how dangerous North Korea is to them as well as us, and we want to see more movement from Beijing."

Gorka praised U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley's comment that the missile launch was "a clear and sharp military escalation."

"We've drawn a line. We have said this cannot go on. Ambassador Haley was absolutely clear yesterday, this is a grave threat, not only to our partners and allies, but now, thanks to this missile, is a grave threat to America and we will not allow this trajectory that North Korea has locked itself into to further endanger us or our friends," Gorka told Fox News. 

"It now is in China's interest to reassess its support for this Stalinist dictatorship," he continued, and "they hold the ace here. They have the real hand to play."

North Korea has "escalated" its threats by launching missile tests, but the U.S. will not broadcast its plans, Gorka said.

"We don't take anything off the table. We don't talk about what we're going to do, because that's never a good idea, whether you're playing poker or you're doing geostrategy or geopolitics. We have every option open."

"We understand diplomacy without the option of force is just empty rhetoric," Gorka said, referring to the "MOAB" bomb dropped in Afghanistan and the cruise missile launch against Syria.

"The president will decide in the interest of the U.S. and national security what has to be done next," he added. 

On Wednesday, Gorka told Fox News' Jeannine Pirro: "North Korea remains a decrepit Stalinist regime that, without the support of China, would economically collapse. They know that, we know that, and Beijing knows it. The question is —​ is China going to start drawing its own red lines?"
