Trump says his North Korea comments 'may not be tough enough'

US President Donald Trump on Saturday held a phone conversation with his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron, stressing that the United States is ready to apply all available measures, including the military ones, to settle the North Korean nuclear issue, the White House said.

In a statement Saturday, Macron said the situation "undermines the preservation of global peace" and the North Korean regime "poses a serious threat to the security of its neighbors".

"North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States".

Trump also reiterated their mutual commitment to denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula, it added.

Trump's "fire and fury" remark on Tuesday followed reports that North Korea produced a nuclear weapon small enough to fit inside a missile. Friday morning, Trump tweeted that the military was "locked and loaded" should North Korea "act unwisely".

The Chinese foreign ministry said Xi urged Trump to avoid "words and deeds" that would "exacerbate" the already-tense situation and to exercise restraint and seek a political settlement.


"Force has always been an option, but it has always been the last option, not the first", Soderberg said.

Tensions around the Korean Peninsula started to rise in light of the implementation of the North Korean missile program.

Trump's warning came after the North threatened to fire ballistic missiles over Japan towards the US Pacific island of Guam.

"I think it's only fair to point out he inherited this crisis", Mr. Gore told Newsweek.

The president appeared to draw another red line that would trigger a USA attack against North Korea and "big, big trouble" for its leader, Kim Jong Un.

"It is clearly time for all parties to focus on ways to reduce tensions", she said Stephane Dujarric, spokesman for the secretary-general of the united Nations, Antonio Guterres.
