Donald Trump calls on North Koreans to make a deal over nuclear program

There has been heavy tension between North Korea and the US president in recent months

Tuesday, November 7, 2017

Donald Trump has called on North Korea to "make a deal" to end the tension over the ongoing nuclear programme. 

Tension between America and the regime in Pyongyang has been rising over recent months as the US President takes an increasingly tough stance on the country for developing nuclear weaponry. 

Trump is now in South Korea on the next leg of his Asia tour, and gave a press conference to address the matter. 

In reponse to a question about diplomatic talks with the country, he said it "makes sense" for North Korea to come to the table to acquire an agreement which is good for its people and for the world at large. 

This marks a slight departure from the hard line the President took with the country in months past. 

Last month, he wrote on Twitter his Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, was "wasting his time" in his attempts to negotiate with "Little Rocket Man."

Trump has threatened to destroy the country previously, notably in a speech given at the United Nations Headquarters in New York City. 

In return, Pyongyang has threatened missile strikes on Guam - a US foreign territory - and mainland America.
