Trump's warning on Tuesday further raises the stakes for the USA president and other world leaders, who face limited options in dealing with North Korea's aggression.
While the United States hails a new package of U.N. penalties that could cut a third of North Korea's exports, the sanctions themselves aren't the American objective.
Trump's focus on North Korea comes after the UN Security Council unanimously voted to impose unprecedented sanctions on Pyongyang a month after the Hermit Kingdom first demonstrated an intercontinental ballistic missile. "We must be tough & decisive!"
Despite the United States' insistence that North Korea halt its missile tests, US spy agencies detected the rogue communist regime loading two anti-ship cruise missiles on a patrol boat on the country's east coast just days ago.
Trump often retweets stories from "Fox & Friends" as an implicit endorsement, since the show is consistently kind to his administration.
The Fox News report, which was about US spy satellites detecting North Korean missile movements, included quotations from officials who requested anonymity to discuss sensitive information.
But it looks like President Donald Trump had another reaction to the anonymous leak.Читайте также: Seoul stocks down 1.1% on heightened tensions over North Korea
"North Korea is not showing any evidence it plans to halt its missile tests", said one official who requested animosity to discuss sensitive information.
The report by Fox highlighted a far less significant threat than those posed than the long-range missiles, known as ICBMS, that have been central to escalating tensions in the region. The arming of a patrol boat could indicate preparations for another missile test by North Korea.
Ambassador, on the front page of foxnews.com right now there is a story that apparently the intel community has picked up anti-ship cruise missiles were being loaded onto a patrol boat or patrol boats in North Korea.
United Nations ambassador Nikki Haley told NBC's "Today" show that she isn't sure whether the sanctions will work.
HALEY: I can't. I can't talk about anything that's classified. "It's incredibly risky when things go out to the press like that".
Trump praised the AG he once described as "beleaguered", saying on August 6, "After many years of LEAKS going on in Washington, it is great to see the AG taking action!"
Can we assume that Attorney General Jeff Sessions will doggedly pursue this particular leaker, or should we just die of helpless and cynical laughter?При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
