    I think things have speed up a bit and moved past that. From The Oz:
    "Growing citizen reports indicated today that China is preparing for trouble across its 1420km border with North Korea - its partially-estranged ally - by deploying troops. Social media claims were given some added credence by an unusual online story in the Global Times that sourced entirely from South Korea’s Yonhap newsagency its information about 150,000 extra Chinese troops being sent to the border region.
    China’s more mainstream media, usually led by state newsagency Xinhua, has not reported on this deployment.
    South Korea’s Chosun.com had reported that medical and other units were being deployed by China to handle North Korean refugees and be ready for the after-effects of “unforeseen circumstances” such as a pre-emptive US strike on North Korea."


    Also allegedly the Global Times in an editorial in its Chinese language edition said:

    “North Korea should not misjudge the situation at this crucial moment, it should not venture to take more risks by thinking a sixth nuclear test will lead to nothing as did the previous five. If it does so, responses from both Beijing and Washington might be unprecedented, even becoming a ‘turning point’"

    I think President Xi & President Trump may have cooked up something other than seafood at Mar-a-lago.
