Trumps u-turn makes for confusion

"I have today ordered the withdrawal of these sanctions!", U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday evening, wrote, while he was on the way to his Golf resort in Florida. So Trump turned against the U.S. Treasury Department, which announced on Thursday that it had set two Chinese shipping companies because of the circumvention of existing sanctions against North Korea on a criminal list. According to the US Minister of Finance, Steve Mnuchin, the measure was "critical" to ensure compliance with the sanctions imposed by the international community.

Trump apparently sees it this different. "President Trump like the Chairman to Kim and does not believe that these sanctions are necessary," said his spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders. With his decision, Trump meets with not only his Minister of Finance prior to the head, but also his national security adviser, John Bolton. This had welcomed the new sanctions previously explicitly as "key actions": "The shipping industry needs to do more of the practices prohibited in North Korea to the lake." According to U.S. media, the U.S. government will meet for the first Time since the failed summit between Trump and Kim had increased reports of pressure on Pyongyang.

Kim had urged at their Meeting in Hanoi, where he spoke with Trump on one end of the North Korean nuclear program, on the lifting of economic sanctions against his country. Trump did not want to occur. With his Tweet from Friday, he's in Washington now, however, for confusion. This is not the way to conduct foreign policy, said John Kirby, former spokesman of the US Ministry of foreign Affairs. It was unclear, first, what are the sanctions Trump said.
