Trump reverses views on Russia, China

Professional Impersonators

Trump initially claimed he was under audit so he couldn't release the returns but after the U.S. Treasury said that was not the case, the president then suggested voters don't care.

President Donald Trump said Sunday on Twitter he has no reason to punish China for its currency management practices as long as they are willing to help rein in North Korea. It's also hard to say what will happen if the United States renews its efforts to deploy missiles in South Korea that could intercept ICBMs.

During a meeting earlier this month with Chinese President Xi Jinping, Trump reportedly did not bring up the issue.

"Why would I call China a currency manipulator when they are working with us on the North Korean problem?" the president tweeted Sunday morning.

Since the president took office, North Korea has conducted five missile tests and launched eight ballistic missiles.

The declaration also came days after Trump - in a turnabout from his campaign stance - declared in an interview that his administration would not label China a currency manipulator, which could have triggered investigations. Trump wrote, raising the possibility his decision could be reversed.

While China has reportedly suspended package tours to North Korea, British travel company Koryo Tours said it would keep sending tourists to the North.

The US hopes China - North Korea's largest trading partner - can apply pressure to Pyongyang to curtail its nuclear ambitions. Overall imports from North Korea to China, however, have increased.

"I think deeper down it is a learning curve, it's very hard - the situation in North Korea - and it's perplexed administration after administration", Nakamura said.
