(USNewsMag.com) – Former President Donald Trump maintained a relatively cordial relationship with North Korean Leader Kim Jong-un. It wasn’t because he wanted to be friends with him, but rather thought it was important for the national security of America. President Joe Biden doesn’t hold the same beliefs and Kim is responding in kind.
On March 10, the Biden administration said North Korea has carried out two missile launches recently. The country was testing its new long-range intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBM). The administration is now warning a full-range missile test could occur in the coming weeks.

The US responded to the latest news by targeting more Russians for their support of North Korea. The Treasury Department announced sanctions against three entities and two Russians. The Treasury Undersecretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence, Brian Nelson, said in a recent press conference it’s targeting a network that’s “complicit in helping North Korea procure components for its unlawful ballistic missile systems.”
Kim has recently indicated he might restart his nuclear program. The nation has already allegedly tested ICBMs that could reach Japan and the US. It’s clear the Biden administration is worried about what’s going on with the adversarial nation.
