Reports are coming in that China has moved 150,000 troops to the border with North Korea in what appears to be a massive military buildup.
Nasdaq is even blaming a drop in the markets in part on this action as it sends a clear signal to the world that China and the United States plan on fixing the North Korea problem.
According to Chosun, a Korean news agency, the People’s Republic of China has moved an estimated 150,000 troops to the border of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, better known as North Korea.
The following quotes are google translations from the Korean News outlet Chosun,

“The prospect of taking “military options” such as preemptive attacks on North Korea, just as the United States has launched an air raid on Syria.

Sounds like Trump and the Chinese President had some very productive talks about North Korea. This is a good deal for both countries because North Korea is a danger to the world.
The Chinese military move comes a few months after China halted coal imports from North Korea over its missile tests. This cut off a critical economic lifeline for North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un.
Without this cash infusion, he will have a more difficult time controlling his people. After all, starving peasants do not a stable society make.
That move was seen as a response to Trump’s calls for Chinese leader Xi Jinping to deal more aggressively with North Korea.
Seems like both Presidents are going to work together to fix this mess. This is great news.
