Posted: Updated:
Washington D.C. -

President Donald Trump announced the designation of North Korea as a state sponsor of terrorism on Monday.

"People are respecting our country again, believe me," Trump said, recalling his recently concluded 12-day, five-nation trip to Asia.

"Today the United States is designating North Korea as a state sponsor of terrorism. Should have happened a long time ago," Trump said.

The designation will impose further sanctions and pressure on North Korea, which the president described as "murderous."

He added that additional, further sanctions against the regime will be announced Tuesday.
