Sen. Lindsey Graham: Trump Says War With North Korea an Option

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked what Donald Trump's stance was on North Korea after a Republican senator, Lindsay Graham, said the U.S. president was willing to go to war. "I have no doubt that he will be an absolutely superb chief of staff", Trump said about Kelly, a retired Marine Corps general who formerly ran the Department of Homeland Security. North Korea said it flew for 47 minutes and reached an altitude of 2,300 miles, with Kim claiming it put the whole of the United States within strike range.

North Korea said on Saturday it had conducted another successful test of an ICBM that proved its ability to strike America's mainland. We're going to be able to handle them. "President Trump and I fully agreed that we need to take further action".

"The specifics of our assessment are classified for reasons I hope you understand", Pentagon spokesman Navy Capt. Jeff Davis said. That may be provocative, but not really.

Such a meeting would set the stage for a likely showdown between the United States and Russian Federation over whether Friday's launch was a long-range rocket test.

House Minority leader Nancy Pelosi also said that China has to help deal with North Korea.

But he made it clear that there was no possibility of talks if North Korea did not abandon its nuclear programme.

Graham, however, disputed the opinion, saying the experts were wrong about the absence of good options.

But in early July she told the Security Council that if it is united, the worldwide community can cut off major sources of hard currency to North Korea, restrict oil to its military and weapons programs, increase air and maritime restrictions, and hold senior officials accountable.

A vocal critic of Donald Trump and his administration, Sen.

"In general, China-US trade, including mutual investment, is mutually beneficial, and both China and the United States have gained great profits from bilateral trade and investment cooperations", he said. "We certainly don't blame the Chinese for the situation in North Korea", Washington's top diplomat said.

Meanwhile, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Tuesday said the U.S. did not seek to topple the North Korean government and would like a dialogue with Pyongyang at some point, but only upon the understanding it can never be a nuclear power.

North Korea's successive testing of two intercontinental ballistic missiles and the threat that the entire United States is in their range of a nuclear attack is an act of grave provocation against the world's lone superpower.

He tweeted again in June: "While I greatly appreciate the efforts of President Xi & China to help with North Korea, it has not worked out". "If called upon, we are ready to respond with rapid, lethal, and overwhelming force at a time and place of our choosing". "There will be a war with North Korea over the missile program if they continue to try to hit America with an ICBM".

North Korea has vowed to develop a nuclear-tipped missile capable of hitting the United States and officials have said the latest test had shown it may now be able to reach most of the country.

Though the boast drew a rebuke from Beijing, Trump said China has not done enough to rein in North Korea.
