While flying to Florida, Trump predicted that “China will be stepping up” to help the U.S. stop North Korea’s nuclear program. He also complained that the U.S. has been “treated unfairly” on the trade front.
“We have been treated unfairly and have made terrible deals — trade deals — with China for many, many years — so that’s one of the things we’re going to be talking about. The other thing is North Korea. And somehow we will mix, they really do mix. We’re going to be talking about trade, North Korea and many other things,” Trump said.
