Piling on to Trump’s worries…

Apparently piling on to President Trump’s worries, North Korea has once again fired two “unidentified projectiles” into the East Sea, according to South Korea’s Yonhap news agency.
After last week’s missile test, President Trump shrugged off the actions. but this time could be different as North Korea has been more threatening, as Reuters reports that North Korea said on Tuesday that the joint military drill being conducted by the United States and South Korea violates agreements North Korea made with them, state media KCNA said.
The North Korea foreign affairs ministry called joint military exercises being conducted by the U.S. and South Korea a “flagrant violation of June 12 DPRK-U.S. Joint Statement, Panmunjom Declaration and September Pyongyang Joint Declaration.”
“If the U.S and South Korean authorities trust to luck, disregarding our repeated warnings, we will make them pay heavy price which will in turn make them very much difficult,” a spokesperson for North Korea’s foreign affairs ministry said.
The timing of this worsening rhetoric is highly coincidental with China’s apparent start of a currency war following Trump’s escalation of the trade war with additional tariffs.
Bottom line, this won’t end well.
