Trump Designates North Korea as State Sponsor of Terrorism

President Trump has officially designated North Korea as a state sponsor of terrorism, escalating the rising tensions between the two countries. Other countries on the list are Sudan, Syria and Iran. The diplomatic move comes amid an escalating threat of nuclear war, with Trump repeatedly threatening to “totally destroy” North Korea and to unleash “fire and fury” on the nation of 25 million people. This is Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson: “I call it the peaceful pressure campaign. The president calls it the maximum pressure campaign. So there’s no confusion, they’re one and the same. And I think this is, though, to hold North Korea accountable for a number of actions that they’ve taken.”
