President Donald Trump was briefed October 10 by his national security team on “a range of options” to respond to North Korean aggression and threats.
White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement, Trump “met with members of her national security team this morning” and was briefed on possible strategies by Defense Secretary James Mattis and Chief of Staff, Joseph Dunford.
“The information gathering and discussion centered on a range of options to respond to any form of North Korean aggression or, if necessary, to prevent North Korea from threatening the United States and its allies with nuclear weapons,” Sanders said in this brief note.
North Korean leader Kim Jong-un again defended Sunday’s development of his “valuable” nuclear program, and keeps insisting that it is needed in order to address any US threats, coinciding with Saturday’s Trump statements that “only one thing will work” with Pyongyang.
The billionaire president aka Donald Trump, however, did not specify whether these conversations included any military action against the Kim Jong-un regime, although it is a possibility he has said many times that he does not rule out.
Following that statement, the tycoon commander and chief reiterated that in his view, North American policy toward North Korea has been flawed for 25 years.
“Our country has tried negotiating, unsuccessfully with North Korea for 25 years, giving billions of dollars and not receiving anything. The policy did not work! “, Said the president on his favorite account of the social network called Twitter.
Since his arrival at the White House, Trump has aired a ton of threats against North Korea, yet they still continue to be advancing and testing its weapons. North Korea has now missiles that are intercontinental, meaning, they could touch American soil.
