China is the key to containing North Korea and the reclusive country's growing nuclear program, Laura Ingraham said in a mini-monologue on "Tucker Carlson Tonight."
She said that China, however, has not been a cooperative partner in opposing Kim Jong Un's regime.
She pointed out that China voted with the U.S. at the UN last week to slap North Korea with more sanctions.
Unfortunately, she said, those sanctions don't affect China's critical shipments of oil to North Korea, and they don't punish the Chinese banks that still do business there.
"China has made billions propping up two of the most dangerous regimes in the world: North Korea and Iran," Ingraham argued.
She pointed out that many in Washington, D.C. are trying to portray Russia as the greatest threat to the U.S., despite the fact that China has its own history of hacking U.S. government servers, committing human rights abuses and striving to expand their territory.
She suggested that we spend less time worrying about Russia and more time worrying about what happens if China supplants the U.S. as the world's dominant economic and military power.
"It's time to face the hard facts," Ingraham said. "The only country that can change North Korea's behavior is China. And until we get more leverage over China, our ability to change the dynamic with North Korea will be extremely limited."
