Trump says 'talking is not the answer' with North Korea

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump on Wednesday dismissed any diplomatic negotiations with North Korea, saying “talking is not the answer,” one day after Pyongyang fired a ballistic missile over Japan and drew international condemnation.

“The U.S. has been talking to North Korea, and paying them extortion money, for 25 years. Talking is not the answer!” Trump wrote in a post on Twitter.
