President Trump vowed to take care of the growing threat on the Korean Peninsula, and so far he’s making good on his word.

Between his negotiations with China to get the rogue North Korean regime under control, and domestic efforts to sanction and punish its leader Kim Jung Un, he’s done more than the past two administrations to reign in the madman. On Monday morning, he took another major step in ending the nuclear threat from the brutal dictatorship – declaring it a state sponsor of terrorism.

In a press conference, the President stated the terror designation is a part of the “maximum pressure campaign” against the regime, and that the move was long overdue.

“Today the United States is designating North Korea as a state sponsor of terrorism. Should have happened a long time ago. Should have happened years ago,” Mr. Trump said.

The announcement comes on the heels of his wildly successful tour of five Asian nations, in which he discussed with foreign officials the best path forward for ending the north’s nuclear program.

North Korea now joins Iran, Sudan, Syria and other nations on the list of state sponsors of terrorism.

President Trump’s approach to dealing with the hermit kingdom greatly contrasts that of Barack Obama, who tried bribing the North with aid to deter them from pursuing nuclear capabilities and often cautioned he may get the military involved but never actually followed through on any of his threats. In fact, Obama’s soft rhetoric and spineless leadership undoubtedly aided the North in its goal to acquire a nuclear weapon, as Rocket Man knew he had nothing to fear from our inexperienced White House resident.

Such was evident when Obama sent a “personal letter” to Kim Jung Un asking that he halt his nuclear development, only to have North Korea carry out even more missile and nuclear tests. At most, Obama warned the North of “further isolation” if it continued down a nuclear path, all while showing weakness when it came to backing up his rhetoric.

As a result, American student Otto Warmbier was captured by North Korea and tortured, only to be released, nearly dead, when President Trump stepped in to force North Korea’s hand.

Warmbier would end up dying just days after returning to his family in the United States.
