The programme also examines the family feud that led leader Kim Jong Un to order the audacious assassination of his elder half-brother Kim Jong Nam at Malaysia's Kuala Lumpur airport six months ago.

"The time for cranking up the antiwar machine is right now", Rep. Ellison said. "The risks of an unintended escalation into full-blown conflict are too great for the whole world".

The intervention comes days after the Labour leader, a long-term opponent and campaigner against nuclear weapons, highlighted the threat to civilians that such weapons pose.

"Our government must not drag our country into any military action over the Korea crisis, including joint exercises", he wrote in the Sunday Mirror.

Mr Corbyn said, while the United Kingdom should play a role with other nuclear-armed countries to mediate the impasse between the countries, the Government not to offer "blind loyalty" to the Trump administration. I mean, we're not North Korea, thank God.

Pyongyang responded by saying it is "carefully examining" a plan to strike the US Pacific territory of Guam with missiles, claiming preparations for the strike could be ready in days.

The president's remarks on the economy and workforce training were largely overshadowed by an ensuing question-and-answer session during which Trump followed up his provocative tweets about North Korea with more expansive comments to reporters monitoring his working vacation from his New Jersey golf club.

The BBC discovered that Kim Jong Nam had been secretly planning to become a European citizen and defect to the West. And we're working on other things, including infrastructure.
