WASHINGTON - The top Democrat in the U.S. Senate on Tuesday called on US President Donald Trump to block Chinese investments in the United States in an effort to pressure China "to help rein in North Korea’s threatening and destabilizing behavior."

In a letter to Trump, U.S. Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer called on the president to use his authority via the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States, or CFIUS, to exert such economic pressure on Beijing.
