    WikiLeaks Founder says that if Trump stopped trade flow with China amid the North Korean crisis he will be dismissed from his office.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – US President Donald Trump will be dismissed from his office if the United States halted trade with China over the North Korean issue, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange said Monday.

    On Sunday, Trump said on his Twitter that Washington was looking into the possibility of putting an end to trade with any state, involved in business with Pyongyang.

    "90% of North Korea's trade is with China. If Trump blocks $650B of US trade with China he'll be deposed immediately," Assange posted on his Twitter.

    Trump's warning came after Pyongyang also claimed on Sunday that it had successfully tested a hydrogen bomb that could be loaded onto an intercontinental ballistic missile, prompting condemnation by the international community.
