The president has often spoken about using military options against North Korea when necessary, and on Saturday tweeted that agreements and negotiations have made US negotiators a fool, and that "only one thing" will work with the regime. Tillerson, in China, had said the U.S. is attempting to find a diplomatic solution to the ongoing escalation of tensions with North Korea.
"Presidents and their administrations have been talking to North Korea for 25 years, agreements made and massive amounts of money paid. hasn't worked, agreements violated before the ink was dry, makings fools of USA negotiators". And on Saturday, he insisted "only one thing will work" to solve the North Korean nuclear impasse.
Speaking to reporters on Saturday ahead of a trip to North Carolina, Trump said he had nothing more to clarify.
The North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un has been nicknamed "Rocket man" by President Trump over this claims he's going to nuke the United States.
Late last month, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Washington was looking into resuming consultations with North Korea to settle the crisis.
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". When asked, he simply said: "You will find out".
Conspiracy Talk News reporters have tried to get clarification on these statement by contacting White House press secretary "Sarah Sanders". "Just a total mess". As expected, North Korea wasn't pleased, which resulted in Trump sounding off on social media. Trump remarked last week that the current period may be the calm before the storm, raising speculation of possible military action against Pyongyang.
Tensions between the U.S. and North Korea have been high, with several threats cast between the states. "The policy didn't work!" Anton Morozov, a member of the Russian lower house of parliament [Duma] who recently returned from an October 2-6 visit to Pyongyang, was quoted by RIA Novosti as saying North Korea was "preparing for a new long-range missile test". "Maybe now, nearly more than any other time, we need a great military".
