If sanctions on North Korea won’t work, we’ll go to ‘Phase Two’ : Trump

If sanctions on North Korea won’t work, we’ll go to ‘Phase Two’
President Donald Trump has warned that the US will go to “Phase 2“ if sanctions imposed on North Korea do not have the desired effects.


Trump made the statement during a  joint news conference with Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull. "If the sanctions don't work, we will have to go to phase two, and phase two may be a very rough thing, may be very, very unfortunate for the world."

The president did not specify exactly what he meant by “Phase 2” and qualified the statement saying that he didn’t think he was “going to exactly play that card.”

Earlier the Trump administration announced its “largest ever” set of sanctions against Pyongyang. The restrictions were made against 50 vessels, shipping companies and trade businesses.North Korea uses its shipping industry to circumvent sanctions to fund its nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs, according to the US Treasury.
