Korea will be met with fire and fury

President Trump on this day is a fan of anonymous sources

United States spy agencies have assessed that North Korea is able to construct a nuclear weapon small enough to fit on a missile, a USA official briefed on the intelligence told NBC News.

Trump made the remark during a briefing at his golf course in Bedminster, New Jersey.

The latest revelations come a month after the U.S. said that it believed that up to 60 nuclear weapons are now controlled by North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, far more than previously thought.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un inspects the defence detachment on Jangjae Islet on Mu Islet located in the southernmost part of the waters off the southwest front, in this undated photo released by North Korea's Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) on May 5, 2017.

But Haley was asked about a story published on FoxNews.com that reported that us spy agencies detected North Korea loading two anti-ship cruise missiles onto a patrol boat on its east coast - signs that threats and sanctions may not be curbing North Korean aggression.

However, the official, who was not authorized to speak publicly, was chagrined that Trump would retweet a report about "something unimportant" that nonetheless "reveals something about our surveillance capabilities". North Korea has conducted five nuclear tests since 2006, with the most recent occurring September 9, 2016.

Also on Tuesday US president Donald Trump praised the global coalition coming together to pressure North Korea over its intercontinental ballistic missile launches "after many years of failure".

Google to "punish" unstable Android apps with low visibility
App developers who favor speed to market as opposed to actual app quality could find themselves punished by Google. Google wants to make it easier for people to find high-quality apps and games in its Play Store.

The new assessment follows a separate United States government report estimating that Pyongyang possesses up to 60 nuclear weapons.

The warhead breakthrough is considered a crucial advancement on the path to producing a nuclear weapon capable of striking the USA mainland, experts said.

The DIA completed the latest analysis on the miniature warhead in July, shortly after another intelligence assessment that sharply raises the official estimate for the total number of bombs in the communist country's atomic arsenal.

"North Korea is not showing any evidence it plans to halt its missile tests", an unnamed US official told Fox News.

"A man you can bait with a tweet is not a man we can trust with nuclear weapons", Clinton warned the United States in a tweet barely a year ago.

On Tuesday, US President Donald Trump highlighted his administration's success in leading the UN Security Council to unanimously pass sanctions on North Korea.

In a Twitter post, Trump said he was "very happy and impressed with 15-0 United Nations vote" on the sanctions. We must be tough & decisive!'
