Trump mulling sanctions on North Korea

The Trump administration is considering imposing sanctions aimed at cutting North Korea off from the global financial system, a senior U.S. official told Reuters on Monday.

According to the official, the sanctions would be part of a multi-pronged approach of increased economic and diplomatic pressure, especially on Chinese banks and firms that do the most business with North Korea, plus beefed-up defenses by the United States and its South Korean and Japanese allies.
