Transcript: How a Single Sentence President Trump Made Enraged South Korea
President Donald Trump has made tensions grow between the U.S. and North Korea via his Twitter account.

During an interview with the Wall Street Journal, Trump was sharing a conversation he had with Chinese leader Xi Jinping about the history of China and Korea.
