Trump Praised the North Koreans as "Great People"

Donald Trump North Korea

"Some people said that my rhetoric is very strong, but look what's happened with very weak rhetoric over the last 25 years, look where we are right now", he added.

"You'll hear more about that soon, I think", the adviser, H.R. McMaster, said at a briefing on the eve of Trump's five-nation tour of Asia, which starts Friday.

North Korea's recent actions, including several missiles that overflew Japan and Pyongyang's sixth and largest nuclear test, have raised the stakes in the most critical global challenge of Trump's presidency. They can help us with Syria. The president joined Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in Japan on Sunday and Monday, enjoying a casual burger lunch and golf - and discussing the nuclear crisis.

"We remain postured to respond in the event of a provocation or conflict, and we have taken all appropriate measures to protect our allies, the Republic of Korea (ROK) and Japan, and U.S. Forces in those countries", the letter reads.

President Donald Trump visits South Korea on Tuesday on the second leg of his first official Asian tour.

He told reporters on Air Force One en route to Asia that North Korea would figure prominently in discussions during the trip. Earlier in the day, North Korea warned Donald Trump to refrain from any "irresponsible remarks", the France press reported.

Trump's marathon trip comes with the North Korea crisis at fever pitch, as United States bombers fly sorties over the Korean peninsula and fears mount of another Pyongyang missile test.

North Korea's latest missile test in September flew over northern Japan before splashing into the Pacific Ocean.

Sprint and T-Mobile End Merger Discussions
It is still possible that Sprint will reject the new terms or decline investing any more effort into the potential merger. Although it has cut its costs, Sprint is saddled with considerable debt and has endured numerous annual losses.

"We want to get it solved".

President Trump says he expects to meet face-to-face with Russian President Vladimir Putin next week on the sidelines of an economic summit in Vietnam.

When playing out hypothetical war scenarios in case armed conflict were to break out, the Pentagon "estimated the potential number of dead in South Korea at 20,000 each day", retired general Rob Givens told the Los Angeles Times.

The Center for Nonproliferation Studies estimates North Korea has between 2,500 and 5,000 metric tons of chemical weapons, including a large supply of VX, the deadliest nerve agent ever created.

As of the announcement on Monday, South Korea had North Korea sanctions imposed on 97 individuals.

North Korea has said in public statements that it wants an official end to the Korean War. A hint at a military option or crude insults directed at Kim - like the term "Little Rocket Man" he previously used to deride the young North Korean dictator - is certain to enrage North Korea, which could react with weapons tests and threats of war.

Before Trump's presidency, many in South Korea and the United States regarded the deal as a key pillar of their alliance.
