On Monday, President Trump officially placed North Korea back on the United State’s list of state sponsors of terrorism. The move reverses President George W. Bush’s 2008 decision to remove North Korea from the list. The Treasury Department also plans to add new sanctions against Pyongyang, bringing U.S. sanctions against North Korea to their highest level ever. In this hour, Forum discusses rising diplomatic tensions between the two countries and President Trump’s efforts to curb North Korea’s nuclear aspirations.
