Trump says 'eventually' North Korea will have 'good missiles'

Ellis Copeland | 03 May, 2017, 22:21

That means, Lt. Gen. McMaster said, working to enforce current United Nations sanctions and perhaps ratcheting them up. The North conducted two nuclear tests a year ago alone, which experts say would have improved its knowledge for making nuclear warheads small enough to fit on missiles, and has been speeding up its development of new missiles, including solid-fuel rockets that can be fired from mobile launchers on land and from submarines. This was not a big missile.

Trump is set to speak with leaders of Singapore and Thailand about the threat North Korea poses of massive, nuclear destruction in Asia, White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus said.

"The relationship I have with China, it's been already acclaimed as being something very special, something very different than we've ever had".

US President Donald Trump said after North Korea's latest failed rocket launch that communist leader Kim Jong Un would eventually develop better missiles, and "we can't allow it to happen".

"People are saying, 'Is he sane?' I have no idea", the Mr Trump said. "We can not let what's been going on for a long period of years continue", Trump said.

Japan will dispatch its biggest warship since World War II to protect a USA supply ship, as tensions mount in the region over North Korea, media reports said on Sunday. The relationship I have with China, it's been already acclaimed as being something very special, something very different than we've ever had.

North Korea has been a major focus for Trump this week.

Trump sent the USS Carl Vinson toward the region, and the US and South Korea also started installing a missile defense system that is supposed to be partially operational within days.

"We have got a president that means business. Is the pressure not working?"

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe condemned the test as a grave threat to the global order.

Francis said the United Nations should regain its leadership in conflict resolution, saying it had been "watered down" over time.

Priebus defended the decision to putting some issues like human rights on backburner with China in order to deal the North Korean behaviour.

"Military pressure against North Korea by the United States only provokes retaliatory steps of the North Korean side".

How are you sure that they're not using this as a way to test you?

In an interview with Reuters on Thursday, President Trump sounded a warning. "I don't think humanity today could bear it", he told reporters. And he wanted to make a statement to Assad and the rest of the world that there are some lines you don't cross.

The US President is famously guarded about his strategic military thinking, but suggested that his administration will be the one to de-fang Kim.
