North Korea becomes the fourth nation on the terrorist list, joining Iran, Sudan and Syria.
Trump told reporters early in his visit that his administration would make an announcement on North Korea "very soon" and White House press secretary Sarah Sanders told reporters that the announcement would come "at the end of the trip". Trump called Kim Jong-un's government a "murderous regime" supporting "acts of global terrorism", and once again called on the nation to "end its unlawful nuclear and ballistic missile development" programs.
Trump accused North Korea of "repeatedly" supporting global terrorism, "including assassinations on foreign soil".
"Today the United States is designating the North Korea as a state sponsor of terrorism".

Last month, 16 members of the U.S. House of Representatives had sent a letter to the State Department calling for North Korea's re-designation on the terror list. Taken together, the four main categories of sanctions resulting from designation under these authorities include restrictions on US foreign assistance; a ban on defense exports and sales; certain controls over exports of dual use items; and miscellaneous financial and other restrictions. Also, it warns that it faces the hostility and the threats of the joint military exercises of the United States and the Republic of Korea in the Korean Peninsula.
In any case, it will do little to open the way for US dialogue with North Korea, which China and others have been pushing for. However, lawyers said there had to be more than one incident, and there was disagreement over whether the treatment of American student Otto Warmbier, who died of injuries suffered in North Korean custody, constituted terrorism. "The regime also continues its push to develop nuclear weapons and intercontinental ballistic missiles, threatening global security", Royce added.
Former President Barack Obama removed Cuba from the list in 2015 and Bush, in addition to North Korea, removed Libya in 2006 and Iraq in 2004.
