To North Korea, Trump's Nuclear Button Tweet Is 'Spasm Of A Lunatic'

North Korea Kim Jong-un and Donald Trump

Foreign ministers and representatives from 20 countries say they agree to continue pressuring North Korea toward denuclearization.

US President Donald Trump says Russian Federation is sabotaging Washington's efforts to halt North Korea's nuclear development program.

US officials have reported a debate within the Trump administration over whether to give more active consideration to military options, such as a pre-emptive strike on a North Korean nuclear or missile site.

Tillerson spoke to reporters aboard his plane back to Washington, a day after meeting with USA allies to discuss intensifying sanctions pressure on North Korea.

"We're playing a very, very hard game of poker and you don't want to reveal your hand", Trump said from the Oval Office.

Working in what the US State Department calls "slave-like" labor, they are among an estimated 50,000 workers in Russian Federation from the isolated state.

"And the agreement between South and North Korea must follow the IOC's standards", Lee was quoted as saying.

"I get exercise. I mean I walk, I this, I that", Trump said.

Even as Trump credited China for stepping up its efforts, he said Beijing could apply additional pressure on the government in Pyongyang to cease its nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs.

He told reporters he was "very happy" that South Korea's United Nations ambassador said Tuesday that Feltman's visit "contributed to the restart of the dialogue between the two Koreas".

In December a year ago, the U.S. spearheaded the passage of a UN Security Council Resolution sanctioning toughest restrictions on North Korea banning exports of industrial equipment, machinery, transportation vehicles and industrial metals to the hermit nation.

North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un just stated that the "Nuclear Button is on his desk at all times".

"They're not there yet, but they're close".

"I probably have a very good relationship with Kim Jong Un", Trump told the Journal.

"What they learned is that they are being sent out in the winter time because there's food shortages and they are being sent out to fish with inadequate fuel to get back", he said.

The remarks closed a day of meetings between the USA and key allies over how to handle the increasingly aggressive North Korean nuclear and ballistic missile program. According to the North Koreans, the book's sales are driven by "rapidly surging anti-Trump sentiments in the global community" and Trump is being "massively humiliated worldwide" by its success, hinting at his ultimate "political demise".
