Trump threatens china with a trade probe - china then does an about face on NK
Trump tweeted Monday he was set to "focus on trade," but didn't specifically cite China.

Quote:Heading to Washington this morning. Much work to do. Focus on trade and military. #MAGA

Just hours before Trump was believed ready to announce the trade investigation, however, China’s Commerce Ministry on Monday announced that all imports of coal, iron ore, lead concentrates and ore, lead and seafood from North Korea would be banned.

There was some disagreement about when the sanctions would go into effect. The Associated Press reported the ban would start at midnight on Sept. 5, but Reuters wrote it could begin as early as Tuesday.
