Sebastian Gorka, a deputy assistant to President Trump, spoke to Fox News about the mounting threat of North Korea. When asked about how the Trump administration might compel China to act against Kim Jong Un’s regime, Gorka had a big idea. Trump can tweet about it.
No seriously, that was the idea. Watch:
Is Donald Trump’s Twitter presence strong enough to compel the world’s most populous country and home to the world’s largest army to act out against an ally with nuclear weapons? It’s unclear. Is tweeting a better idea than bombing North Korea? It might be. Are Trump’s aides scrambling for answers at as the White House descends into a state of chaos the country has never before seen? It sure seems like it.
