TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — The Trump Administration has 90 days to bring Congress a strategy to address North Korean threats to our country and allies.

It's Senator Joe Donnelly's provision.


He says he hopes it will show the American people we have a plan in place.

"We're not looking for intelligence details. We're just looking to know that there is a strategy in place. That it is being followed. That we are moving the ball forward and that we are protecting our allies, our friends, and our own friends and neighbors in Indiana as well," said Donnelly.

The Senator says he hopes the strategy would include increasing pressure on China's oil exports to North Korea.

Stopping those exports would cripple North Korea's economy.

When asked why he is making this such a priority Donnelly said, "Well I serve on the Armed Services committee number one so it's in my area of responsibility and then number two my first and foremost obligation to Hoosiers is to protect our country."

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