U.S. President Donald Trump said he is designating North Korea a state sponsor of terrorism, subjecting the regime to additional sanctions and reinforcing its status as an international pariah.

Speaking at the start of a cabinet meeting at the White House, Trump said the Treasury Department will announce additional measures Tuesday, describing the move against Kim Jong Un’s regime as “a very large one.”
