Trump again cites 'military' option against North Korea

"It's tailor-made for somebody to misuse".

We should challenge Kim to present a new face to the world and offer to come in and provide whatever assistance they need to make the whole thing a success.

Earlier this week, nuclear-armed North Korea threatened to strike the United States and its Pacific territory of Guam.

"You have this guy [Trump] making bellicose threats against somebody else who has very little to lose over there", Ellison said.




The KPA spokesman went on to say the plan could be put into practice "any moment" once Kim Jong-un decides to move forward with it. "Well, he's acting more responsible than this guy is".

According to the White House, Trump and Xi affirmed that the recent adoption of a new UN Security Council resolution regarding North Korea was an important and necessary step toward achieving peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula.

Rodong Sinmun, North Korea's official newspaper, said the volunteers had offered to join or rejoin the People's Army after the Korea Central News Agency (KCNA) issued a statement on Monday condemning new sanctions imposed by the United Nations in retaliation for North Korean missile tests. "President Trump stated that the United States is ready, along with its allies, to apply the full range of diplomatic, economic, and military measures to achieve that goal", said a readout of the phone call.

Following that vote, reports indicated that the country has developed a miniaturized nuclear warhead capable of fitting on a missile.
