North Korea sanctions with bite. @ARuggiero @MaryKissel

"Just spoke to President XI JINPING of China concerning the provocative actions of North Korea," Trump said in a tweet Wednesday. "Additional major sanctions will be imposed on North Korea today. This situation will be handled!" Trump didn't provide further details on what sanctions were planned. But Secretary of State Rex Tillerson offered a few clues. "We have a long list of additional potential sanctions. Some of which involve additional financial institutions," Tillerson said during a meeting with the Crown Prince of Bahrain on Wednesday. White House press secretary Sarah Sanders told reporters during a briefing later in the day that the administration wants "to do everything we can to put maximum pressure" on North Korea.
