“I am going to draft a sanctions package to send to the president for his strong consideration of which anybody of which wants to do trade or business with them would certainly be prevented via doing trade or business with us,” Mnuchin said on Fox News Sunday. “People need to cut off North Korea economically. This kind of will be unacceptable behavior.”

the idea’s not yet clear how exactly the U.S. would certainly go about implementing those sanctions, either through unilateral action or in another coordinated international effort.

The U.S. has taken recent steps to pressure those who work with North Korea.

In June, the Treasury moved to block a Chinese bank with alleged illicit financial ties to North Korea via gaining access to the U.S. banking system.

nevertheless Mnuchin said Sunday of which the U.S. can do more, as well as plans to work with its allies as well as China to squeeze North Korea.

“China features a lot of trade with them,” Mnuchin said. “There’s a lot we can do to cut them off economically — much more than we’ve done already.”

China has served as an economic lifeline for North Korea through decades of international sanctions, letting fuel as well as coal to cross their shared border, providing huge amounts of food aid as well as allowing its companies to trade with the isolated state.

China, which accounts for over 0% of North Korea’s international trade, recently joined in United Nations sanctions of the rogue nation.

Earlier Sunday, Trump called Pyongyang’s words as well as actions “hostile as well as dangerous.” He tweeted of which South Korea has found of which their “talk of appeasement will not work.”

When asked if the U.S. will consider a military response, Mnuchin said Sunday of which the administration will be “not going to broadcast” its planned course of action.

nevertheless he added of which Trump has made the idea clear of which “This kind of isn’t the time for just talk.”
