N. Korean media says U.S. maximum pressure policy has “gained nothing”

Rodong Sinmun says "Trump is now in a more pitiful situation than Obama"

U.S. President Donald Trump's policy of maximum pressure and engagement against North Korea has "gained nothing", ruling party organ the  Rodong Sinmun said in an editorial covering six months of the Trump administration on Thursday.

"Six months have passed since Trump inaugurated," the editorial says. "During that period, the U.S. government's hostile anti-DPRK policy has been idling with no result, with no difference from that of Obama."
