North Korea's Nuclear Threat Doesn't Phase Samsung's Shareholders

"Don't worry about a thing and they should have had me eight years ago, or at least somebody with my thought process, because that was the time", Trump said.

Trump added that North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has "disrespected our country greatly", adding, "with me, he's not getting away with it". "Was this statement signed off on by anyone?"

Japan has begun deploying surface-to-air missile systems at four locations in western regions amid heightened fears over the standoff between North Korea and the United States. "There is a military option to destroy North Korea's program and North Korea itself", Sen.

China has repeatedly called for a resumption of long-dormant six-party talks to peacefully resolve the mounting tensions, but its position has been overshadowed by the emerging game of brinkmanship.

He later retweeted a posting from U.S. Pacific Command that showed B-1B Lancer bomber planes on Guam that "stand ready to fulfill USFK's #FightTonight mission if called upon to do so".

Tuesday: "North Korea, best not make any more threats to the United States", Mr Trump tells reporters.

"You know what, that could happen.it looks so lovely to me", Trump said.

North Korea has threatened to attack the USA territory of Guam and announced on Saturday that 3.5m people had signed up to join the army over the past week.

Since becoming president, Donald Trump has relished any opportunity to take credit for improving economic numbers, even as experts say he is just reaping the rewards from the policies put in place by his predecessor Barack Obama. The U.S. devastated most of North Korea's cities and infrastructure with a massive bombing campaign during the 1950-53 Korean War.

Terence Roehrig, a national security affairs professor at the U.S. Naval War College in Newport, Rhode Island, said Trump's posture suggested he was trying to dissuade Kim from further provocations rather than setting the stage for a U.S. military strike.

The North's official KCNA news service, for its part, accused Trump in an editorial of "driving the situation on the Korean peninsula to the brink of a nuclear war", calling the United States "the heinous nuclear war fanatic".

Despite the war of words, the U.S. military says, for now, there has been no change in its readiness posture in South Korea or elsewhere in Asia.

"We have more sanctions to go unless North Korea responds - coal and iron ore, some strategic minerals, the oil supplies and the financial flow of overseas workers' money", Gheewhan Kim said. Pyongyang has said it would take less than 18 minutes for a missile to cross the 3,400-kilometre (2,100-mile) distance to the USA territory. Some called it "bombastic" and others said Trump was pushing the country towards a nuclear war by posting a potentially unenforceable red-line for Pyongyang. Chung and McMaster had a telephone conversation to discuss North Korea, presidential spokesman Park Su-hyun said.

"China should also make clear that if North Korea launches missiles that threaten US soil first and the USA retaliates, China will stay neutral", the Global Times, which is widely read but does not represent government policy, said in an editorial.

As former NSA analyst John Schindler told PRI, it's much more hard to gather accurate intel on a country with which we have no diplomatic or trade relations, and what's more, the North Koreans know we're spying on them and do what they can to deceive us.
