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

A White House statement said Trump and President Emmanuel Macron had discussed "the increasingly unsafe situation associated with North Korea's destabilising and escalatory behaviour".

"Trump reiterated to President Macron the United States' commitment to stop the North Korean nuclear menace".

"The United States, with their allies, are ready to implement a full range of measures diplomatic, economic and military" to put an end to the nuclear threat of north korea, explained the White House in a press release.

Meanwhile, in a separate statement issued by the Elysee Palace on Saturday, Macron urged the worldwide community to refrain from escalating the situation around North Korea.

President Donald Trump has threatened to unleash "fire and fury like the world has never seen" if North Korea continues to threaten the United States.

Trump's call with Macron came hours after he talked with Chinese President Xi Jinping in a separate phone call. On Friday, the president Trump had assured that the military option was now "ready".

The United Nations Security Council just unanimously passed new, stronger sanctions against North Korea's nuclear program.

"I think he's made a decision long ago, quite frankly, to try to negotiate the threat with North Korea".

The report quotes Xi as saying: "At present, the relevant parties must maintain restraint and avoid words and deeds that would exacerbate the tension on the Korean Peninsula".

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe says he will do everything he can to protect the Japanese people as tensions escalate over North Korean plans to send missiles flying over Japan toward Guam.

US Senator Lindsey Graham addressed the rising tensions between the USA and North Korea.

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.
