Trump Extends National Emergency Order Declaring North Korea A Threat

President Donald Trump extended a long-standing executive order declaring the threat posed by North Korea a national emergency. 

Trump extended the national emergency for one year. President George W. Bush originally signed the order in 2008. 

The U.S. suspended military drills with South Korea following the summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. Still, the Trump administration has vowed to maintain maximum pressure and sanctions on North Korea during denuclearization talks.
