Trump says 'only one thing will work' against North Korea

North Korea missile

The President of the United States, Donald Trump has tweeted that he means business with North Korea.

Budget director Mick Mulvaney tells NBC that Trump's "clearly telegraphing, and this should not be news to anybody", that "military options are on the table". And then there is China, which although is not appreciative of North Korea assuming nuclear capabilities, it does not want Kim Jong-un's regime to collapse, according to The Guardian.

Earlier, he had indicated the possibility of military action against Pyongyang, remarking unprompted at a dinner with USA military leaders last week that the setting was the "calm before the storm", another remark which he has not shed light on. Reuters said Trump's remarks "seemed to be a further suggestion that military action was on his mind", drawing connections between them and previous comments made on October 5. Security experts contend that Donald Trump's threatening behavior at the United Nations and his consequent rhetoric is not going to ease tensions with North Korea, but will only end up escalating it. Benjamin Habib, a politics professor at La Trobe University, believes Trump's alpha posturing could end up meaning the deaths of thousands or millions of people for little or no reason. While preparing the leave the White House to attend a fundraising event in Greensboro, North Carolina, that evening, Trump was asked by reporters what would "work" against Pyongyang.

So when Ted Lieu suggested that Donald Trump's resignation is the "only thing" which could save a worsening of ties between the two countries, Twitter users responded to the statement with agreement and more humor. "It should have been handled during the Obama administration", he added. The truth is, Mike, I was handed a mess. "Just a total mess". "They also showed the calculations for a more powerful possible capable of reaching the US's Pacific coast", he reported.

The president has often spoken of using military options against North Korea if necessary. "Sorry, but only one thing will work!".

The situation on the Korean Peninsula remains tense amid Pyongyang's active development of its missile and nuclear programs and the US-South Korean military drills.

"Iran is a bad player and they will be taken care of as a bad player", he said, reinforcing expectations he will decertify the agreement this week, a step that could lead to its termination.
