North Korea may respond to Trump’s visit to Peninsula with new missile test


A reporter from McClatchy News left an MSNBC panel in stunned silence when she claimed that North Korea might test a missile during US President Donald Trump’s visit to Asia in November, APA reports quoting sputniknews.

"What experts are telling me, though, is that there might be a missile test by North Korea while President Trump is traveling," said McClatchy News reporter Anita Kumar. "That's going to put him on the spot while he's in China or South Korea."

 

"So that would be huge," Kumar adding. "He'd have to decide then and there how to react."

 

It wouldn't be the first time that Pyongyang timed a missile test to give it symbolic significance. On July 4, American Independence Day, North Korea test-fired their Hwasong-14, the North's first-ever successful ICBM test. Previous DPRK missile tests have also been timed to respond to US and South Korean military exercises.

 

Trump's Asia tour is expected to include stops in South Korea, China, the Philippines and Vietnam. However, Kumar said, the president's "number one top priority is North Korea."
