Julian Assange says Trump will be “deposed immediately” if he blocks trade with China

US President Trump continues to box himself in when it comes to dealing with North Korea…and the deep state may be betting on just this fact as they continue to chip away at the US President’s stability, and move from a soft “swamp” coup to a full on coup d’état.

The dangerous consequences baked into Trump’s misdirected policy of dealing with North Korea by exerting pressure on China, is not lost on Julian Assange.

The WikiLeaks founder responded to Trump’s tweet threatening to ban trade with nations that do business with North Korea, warning the US President that blocking trade with China would mean certain removal from office..

Julian Assange tweeted…

90% of North Korea’s trade is with China. If Trump blocks $650B of US trade with China he’ll be deposed immediately.

On Sunday, POTUS Trump tweeted that he is considering “in addition to other options, stopping all trade with any country doing business with North Korea.”

RT reports

US goods and services trade with China totaled some $648.2 billion back in 2016, according to data from the Office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR). This makes China the “largest goods trading partner” of the US, and the 3rd largest US goods export market.

Trump’s “other options” include a “full range” of capabilities, including nuclear ones, that the US is ready to use to defend its “homeland, territories, and allies” against North Korea.

In a series of tweets Sunday, Trump branded North Korea a “rogue nation and a threat.” The latest developments in Pyongyang’s nuclear capabilities are “very hostile and dangerous to the United States,” he said.

Also on Sunday, North Korean state TV said that Pyongyang had successfully tested a hydrogen explosive device which can be mounted on an Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM). The test followed Pyongyang’s claims that it developed a new, more advanced hydrogen nuke that is small enough to be fitted on an ICBM.

The test was a “perfect success” and was a “meaningful” step to complete the North’s nuclear weapons program, state television reported.

The international community immediately condemned the test, supporting the idea of imposing new sanctions against the North.

The Russian Foreign Ministry also condemned the North Korean test, adding that in a situation like this, it is essential “to keep composure and to refrain from any acts which may lead to further escalation of tensions.”

The test is “another example of Pyongyang’s outright disregard” of UN Security Council resolutions and international law, the ministry said in a statement.

Japanese Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga suggested including restrictions on oil trade with North Korea into the list of new sanctions.

In the meantime, China’s Global Times newspaper warned against cutting off the North’s oil supply.

“If China completely cuts off the supply of oil to North Korea or even closes the China-North Korea border, it is uncertain whether we can deter Pyongyang from conducting further nuclear tests and missile launches. However, confrontation between the two is likely to occur,” it said.

The newspaper warned that a potential conflict between Beijing and Pyongyang would “transcend any conflict between the US and North Korea, and take center stage on the Korean Peninsula.”

Ironic that Japan advocates doing to NK what was done to it by the US before Dec. 1941.

Japan does not advocate using nuclear weapons against North Korea. They are full-board on further sanctions.

Don’t worry – only European companies will be hit with sanctions on China. There’ll be a long list of US only exemptions.

Can’t we just talk to North Korea? We don’t seem to have the balls to do that.

The Clinton’s made a nuclear deal with the North Korean government that helped them develop their “peaceful” nuclear energy in exchange for not developing nuclear weapons. Bush 43 ignored North Korea and Obama neglected the growing North Korean threat. The entire time from Clinton to Obama there has been a “play nice” diplomacy that supported the Clinton-North Korean deal. When a party violates the terms and conditions of a contract, it becomes null and void. And, the pursuant has legal grounds to act. The question is how is the US going to act? More sanctions or war?

“Deposed immediately”. Yeah that’s a bold claim, and I don’t think it would happen. Americans hate the swamp more than the swamp loves corruption.

Why is the U.S. so interested in North Korea that it would be willing to go to war? Follow the money, NK is loaded with untapped natural assets just like Afghanistan and every other country we are currently in conflict with…..we have become the evil Fascists we defeated in WWII.
