INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (WLFI) — It's been four days since North Korea tested another ballistic missile.
Now Democratic Senator Joe Donnelly is asking President Trump to confront the threat by signing a national defense bill.

The bill would require a clear strategy on how to move forward with North Korea.

NKorea Missle

Senator Donnelly says he hopes such a strategy would include increasing pressure on China's exports of oil to North Korea.

Stopping those exports would cripple North Korea's economy.

He would also like to see a larger Navy presence off the coast of North Korea.

“These are the kinds of things that we need to be doing. We need to show that there's a presence there and we also need to talk to North Korea and tell them that we're not in the business of regime change, but we are in the business of keeping our nation safe and our friends and allies safe,” said Donnelly.

If Donnelly's bill is signed into law, the President would have 90 days to propose a strategy to Congress.
