Congress Considers US Options When Dealing With North Korea

"They've been doing this to our country for a long time, many years", Trump said.

Trump called Xi after meeting with US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson in Bedminster.

ZELDIN: Absolutely. Wherever you have any entity, whether it's an individual, a - or a business organization that is helping the North Koreans with their exports or obviously anything specifically targeting - directed to their program, then we should be using that leverage to show how serious we are and get China to hopefully up their game.

"If somebody else uttered the exact same words that I uttered they would say what a great statement, what a wonderful statement", Trump said, adding that there are "tens of millions of people in this country that are so happy with what I am saying".

"'Nobody loves a peaceful solution better than President Trump".

TL: Having served in the military, it's very clear to me that military force should always be the last resort and you've got to exhaust all other options.

That said, we doubt the president needs to remind North Korea, in such a graphic way, of America's enormous military capability.

"It's a very big decision for me", Politico news quoted the President as saying. That includes a comment from U.S. Defense Secretary James Mattis that North Korea must stop any action that would "lead to the end of its regime and the destruction of its people". "We should defend what we believe in, but until that happens we should stand still". "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's rhetoric and North Korea's response have unsettled powers in the Asia-Pacific region, with some scrambling to respond to the escalation of tensions.

Meanwhile, 21 Korean-American politicians and government officials, including council members and mayors at the state, city, and county levels, sent a letter to Trump the same day asking him not to make the already extreme situation with North Korea any worse.

President Donald Trump returned to the attack on North Korea on Thursday, telling reporters at his country club in New Jersey that perhaps his previous threat to rain "fire and fury" on the renegade state maybe "wasn't tough enough". The president has been in this back-and-forth, a kind of public feud with the Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell. Instead of the silo-based interceptors being used, some argue a more fruitful approach would be to destroy or disable such missiles before they can be launched, possibly by cyberattack.

TL: If he does it without congressional authorization and it's not in self-defense, yes I think that would provide grounds for impeachment. I think there is still time for other measures. "We're going to save a lot of money".
