Anthony Ruggiero: We Need to Impose More Sanctions on China, Not Waiting for Them to Pressure North Korea

‘And the Trump Administration got it right on Thursday by declaring a Chinese bank a money launderer for North Korea’

RUSH EXCERPT:
RUGGIERO: "The Chinese are not going to do anything. This is what they want. They know this is not a threat against them. They will blame the United States, I’m sure, at some point. They won’t allow the U.N. to do the level of sanctions necessary frankly against Chinese persons. And the Trump Administration got it right on Thursday by declaring a Chinese bank a money launderer for North Korea and going after two Chinese individuals and a Chinese company for sanctions. My answer is thanks for that. Let’s do some more of that. That’s what we need to be doing, not relying on China to wake up and pressure North Korea."
