4 ways China could hurt North Korea's economy

"China should make clear that if North Korea launches missiles that threaten US territories and triggers USA retaliations, China will stay neutral".

MARTIN: What - are President Trump's words, though, undermining the potential effectiveness of those sanctions if it just keeps escalating the rhetoric and escalating the threats that North Korea throws back? But if North Korea were to launch missiles toward Guam or Hawaii "that would certainly be more of an escalation" that could potentially roil markets more.

The New START treaty limits the U.S.to 1,550 strategic nuclear warheads deployed on 700 long-range delivery systems, including intercontinental ballistic missiles, submarine-launched ballistic missiles and bombers.

Located right next to Guam is the Northern Mariana Islands.

"Hopefully it will all work out".

Trump suggested in remarks on Thursday that his comments threatening North Korea with "fire and fury" may not have been tough enough. Thank you very much for joining us.

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: It's about time that somebody stuck up for the people of this country and for the people of other countries. The people of North Korea believe its leaders to be gods.

North Korea remains one of the most isolated countries in the world. "We should also make clear that, if the USA and South Korea carry out military attacks to overthrow the North Korean regime and change the political landscape on the Korean Peninsula, China will be determined to take actions to prevent them from doing so". Trump was also termed to be "extremely getting on the nerves" of North Korean soldiers with his comments.

On Tuesday, President Trump issued the memorable warning to North Korea that it would be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen.

And it's really only - it's been less than a week since the U.N. Security Council took their actions where - these were massive sanctions.

The decision will not only take action against alleged Chinese violations of United States companies' intellectual property rights, but also could be perceived as an attempt by the United States government to crank up the pressure on China to leverage its influence in tempering North Korea's increasingly aggressive posture. You already have a nuclear power in China. I think it just makes them more unsafe.

The Trump administration has experimented with different approaches to North Korea. One is, we don't know where all their nuclear weapons are; we don't even know how many they have. We need to get - it's going to be tested quickly over the course of literally weeks as to whether or not China's serious.

"While our State Department is making every effort to resolve this global threat through diplomatic means, it must be noted that the combined allied militaries now possess the most precise, rehearsed, and robust defensive and offensive capabilities on Earth", Mattis said.

ZELDIN: Thank you. Good morning.
