Trump orders withdrawal of sanctions against N Korea

President Donald Trump has abruptly ordered the withdrawal of additional large-scale sanctions on North Korea, immediately after the Treasury Department imposed them, with his press secretary saying that the US President likes North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and does not think they are necessary.

President Trump's unusual move came after his second summit with Kim, held last month in Hanoi, Vietnam. Trump walked out of that summit after refusing to agree to North Korea's demands of lifting all sanctions. In a tweet yesterday Trump said, he has ordered  the withdrawal of large-scale additional sanctions announced by the 
Treasury Department.

The Treasury Department had on Thursday, announced sanctions on Chinese shipping companies doing business with North Korea. Those sanctions prompted a swift pushback from the Chinese and North Korean governments.

The sanctions were the first new sign of pressure since talks between Trump and Kim broke down in Hanoi.
