"The United States of America has viable military options to deal with a nuclear threat from North Korea", he said.

I am very confident, as President Trump is, that President Moon will continue to stand strongly with us in our extreme-pressure campaign.

The South Korean President and Yo-jong will jointly attend the North Korean art troupe's concert at the National Theater of Korea in central Seoul on Sunday, according to officials.

Vice President Mike Pence, who will head the US delegation at Friday's opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics in South Korea, will also be competing in a hard new event not on any Olympic program.
