China's wonderful, but they're getting away with murder. Reporter: Beyond today's smiles, though, tough challenges, on trade, of course, and North Korea. The president demanding that China cut off Kim Jong-un unless he gives up his nuclear program. Earlier in Seoul, no talk of fire and fury. No taunting of little rocket man. Instead, a sober warning.
