Donald Trump ready to take 'DEVASTATING' military action against North Korea

Twitter says it won't take down a controversial weekend tweet from President Donald Trump - the tweet North Korea's Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho described as a declaration of war.

Despite the increased tension, the United States has not detected any change in North Korea's military posture reflecting an increased threat, the top U.S. military officer said on Tuesday.

Trump also blamed the problem of North Korea's nuclear program on his predecessors.

"This further advances our strategy to fully isolate North Korea in order to achieve our broader objectives of a peaceful and denuclearized Korean peninsula", US Treasury secretary Steven Mnuchin said in a statement.

Regarding heightened tensions on the Korean Peninsula over the recent escalation in rhetoric between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, McMaster said the USA wants to avoid war with the North but can not discount that possibility.

He acknowledged that every military option assumed a reaction from North Korea that endangered South Korean citizens, adding it's "foremost in our minds".

Both defense officials said that the United States maintains sufficient aerial surveillance and radar capability in the region to know if any military aircraft take off from North Korea.

"Impacts of the sanctions on trade, prices and North Koreans' livelihood are likely to become visible as time goes by", said the official. And we're replying to those things, but it is a reply.

The president also expressed frustration with past administrations for not effectively addressing the North Korean issue: "North Korea is a situation that should have been handled 25 years ago, 20 years ago, 15, 10, 5 years ago".

"You had various administrations ... which left me a mess", said the president. In North Korea, US$1 is trading at some 8,000 North Korean won.

Taiwan joins a long list of countries which have urged North Korea to suspend any activity that harms or threatens peace in the Asia Pacific region, and has pledged to abide by UN Security Council Resolution No. 2375 adopted on September 11. As such all nations must act now to ensure the regime's complete denuclearisation.

"I do not think we have seen any evidence" of Mr. Trump's rhetoric driving Pyongyang closer or further from war with the U.S.", Gen. McMaster said. This is something that people would have thought unthinkable even two months ago, he said. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, speaking in India on Tuesday, said the USA wants to keep engagement with North Korea in the diplomatic realm as long as possible.

"But it's true that the recent events in North Korea, with the implications in the neighbouring countries-very important countries, means that we will have to be forceful, and those of us who defend the values of democracy, freedom and human rights have to let North Korea know that it isn't going anywhere in that direction", Rajoy said.
