Trump: US ready to deal with N. Korean ‘christmas gift’

President Donald Trump says the U.S. is ready to deal with any “Christmas Gift” that North Korea has threatened to deliver; amid stalled nuclear negotiations between the two nations.

“Maybe it’s a present where he sends me a beautiful vase; as opposed to a missile test right. I may get a vase,” Trump told reporters Tuesday.

North Korea has called on the U.S. to make concessions in the nuclear talks; and warned earlier this month it is “entirely up to the U.S. what Christmas gift it will select to get”

The nuclear negotiations have been stalled since February; with North Korea seeking sanctions relief before giving up any of its nuclear capability; a path the United States has so far rejected.

Last month, North Korea conducted its fourth launch of 2019; of what it called a “super-large, multiple-rocket launch system;” and warned it may soon launch a “real ballistic missile” in the vicinity of Japan.

North Korea last tested an intercontinental ballistic missile in November 2017; and conducted a nuclear test in September 2017.

In April 2018, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un announced a self-imposed moratorium on ICBM and nuclear tests, saying North Korea “no longer need[s]” those tests.

Recently, North Korean officials have issued reminders that North Korea’s pause on ICBM and nuclear tests was self-imposed and can be reversed.
