Trump warns North Korea's missiles will get better

Posted May 01, 2017

Earlier on Sunday, Donald Trump told CBS that he "will not be happy" if North Korea conducts another nuclear test.

Trump's comments come after North Korea carried out a test-launch of what U.S. officials said was a short-range ballistic missile, a test banned under United Nations sanctions.

"We do have to do something" with partners in the region and globally "that involves enforcement of the United Nations sanctions that are in place", McMaster said on the "Fox News Sunday" program.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Friday walked back from statements of possible US military action, even offering aid to North Korea if it would end its nuclear weapons programs, the Associated Press reported.

US President Donald Trump has not ruled out military action against North Korea if the communist country pushes forward with another nuclear test. At the time, Pyongyang said it was a drill for an attack on U.S. bases in Japan.

When asked if the U.S. was to blame for Pyongyang's failed blast, President Trump remained coy.

"He has made efforts to bring China in as an accomplice of the USA without making any concessions and efforts to enter into any serious negotiations despite the position of China which is opposed to nuclear weapons in North Korea but also wants the United States to denuclearize South Korea", the analyst said.

When "Face the Nation" host John Dickerson pressed President Trump on what "not happy" meant, he responded: "I would not be happy".

Asked if he considered North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to be rational, Mr Trump said he was operating from the assumption that he is rational. About 300 protesters faced off against 800 police and succeeded in blocking two U.S. Army oil trucks from entering the site, local media reported. "We can't allow it to happen".

U.S. secretary of state Rex Tillerson echoed Trump's position that all options were on the table if Pyongyang persisted with its nuclear and missile development in a UN Security Council meeting on Friday.

But McMaster and South Korea's presidential security adviser Chairman Kim Kwan-jin spoke on Sunday to confirm that the USA won't seek money from Seoul to pay for the Thaad system.

"Obviously, he's a pretty smart cookie", Trump said.

"I'd rather not discuss it", he told CBS.

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson at a UN Security Council meeting on North Korea said yesterday that Washington's goal was "not regime change" in the isolated country nor does it "desire to threaten the North Korean people or destabilise the Asia Pacific region".

President Trump's national security adviser on Sunday told his South Korean counterpart that the US would shoulder the cost of the THAAD missile defense system, Reuters reported.

"Well, I didn't say, "Don't test a missile".

Tension on the Korean peninsula has been high for weeks over fears the North may conduct a long-range missile test, or its sixth nuclear test, around the time of the April 15 anniversary of its state founder's birth.
