McMaster says there is military option against N. Korea

President Trump answers questions about the violence injuries and deaths in Charlottesville in New York

Now, however, with North Korea perilously close to being able to directly threaten U.S. cities with nuclear obliteration, the worry for some is that Pyongyang could blackmail Washington into qualifying or limiting its support for its allies in the region. And he comes out with USA being very strong in the end.

Trump made the remark Friday during a speech to military personnel and their families at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland, just outside Washington.

Trump said the North had "once again shown its utter contempt for its neighbors and for the entire world community".

Diplomacy on the North Korean nuclear standoff has been stalled for years.

The North Korean and Iranian nuclear programs are foremost on the president's agenda.

NIKKI HALEY: The U.N. has shifted over the past several months. Only now, the threat is heightened.

"I think it's a signal that the USA takes the General Assembly much less seriously than it did under President Obama", said Gowan. More specifically, China and Russian Federation want the U.S.to accept North Korea's demand to cease joint military exercises with South Korea to bring the Kim regime to the negotiating table.

North Korea yesterday fired an intermediate range ballistic missile over Japan and into the Pacific Ocean. But the North has ignored countless global reproaches previously.

Trump officials temper expectations for 15 percent corporate tax rate
But other firms-"entities that do create jobs", Mnuchin said-may still qualify. "Ideally, he'd like to get it down to 15 percent. Steve Mnuchin to Wall Street: Time to pay up.

McMaster emphasized that it's the responsibility of all nations to enforce U.N. sanctions on North Korea and address the problem.

National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster said Trump "will urge all states to come together to address great dangers" facing the globe.

"We ought to make clear what's different about this approach is that we're out of time", McMaster said.

Experts have long questioned if the US could indeed attack North Korea, given its ability to cause massive casualties south of the border.

Still, a reporter noted North Korea's behavior isn't really changing.

Tillerson noted that China, which supplies North Korea with most of its oil, and Russian Federation, as the largest employer of North Korean forced labor, have a unique responsibility in the diplomatic situation. But, unlike past presidents, Trump is promoting his "America First" agenda, and he has called for slashing USA financial contributions to the United Nations. "And at that point there is not a whole lot the security council is going to be able to do from here when you have cut 90% of the trade and 30% of the oil", she said.

Lisa Collins, a fellow at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, said other nations will be watching the United States at the U.N. next week to determine Trump's next steps. "I have no problem kicking it to Gen. [Jim] Mattis, because I think he has plenty of options".

Beyond this, however, their needs to be much more active consultation between Washington and its two allies, both bilaterally and trilaterally, on the details of coordinated deterrence policy in response to future security provocations from North Korea.
