Trump has threatened to unleash "fire and fury" on North Korea if it pursues launching nuclear weapons, and on Thursday said perhaps those comments weren't tough enough.

Tillerson added that Trump was reaffirming the capability of the U.S.to fully defend itself and its allies.

"All of the previous presidents faced the theoretical possibility of Korea having a nuclear weapon that it could put on a missile and the missile reaching the United States", said Anthony Cordesman, an analyst at the Center for Strategic and International Studies. What he's thinking can change depending on the day of the week.

"Do I have military options?"

"There are people inside the administration who think it is their job to save America from this president", he said in an interview with CNN.

It said Trump looks forward to a "very historic" meeting with Xi in China later this year. "In the President's words they are behind us '1,000 percent.' As the head of the Government of Guam, I appreciate their reassurances that my family, my friends, everyone on this island, are all safe".

"We need fewer fiery words and bombastic tweets from the president and his cable TV surrogates and more effort to work with our worldwide partners to expand missile defenses and deterrence and create a strategy to roll back North Korea's nuclear and ballistic missile programs".

MARTIN: Let me ask you on that in seconds remaining - are you convinced that China will stick to these sanctions?

I think the challenge here is that both China and the United States understand there really is not a military way to solve this problem without severe consequences.

ZELDIN: Absolutely. Wherever you have any entity, whether it's an individual, a - or a business organization that is helping the North Koreans with their exports or obviously anything specifically targeting - directed to their program, then we should be using that leverage to show how serious we are and get China to hopefully up their game. At times, the White House has tried to deprive North Korea of the attention experts believe its erratic leader seeks with each nuclear test.

As the world digested the president's remarks on Tuesday threatening to unleash "fire and fury" on North Korea, Trump said in a tweet Wednesday, "My first order as President was to renovate and modernize our nuclear arsenal".

As of August 1, Politifact says Trump's golfed at least 21 times since taking office.

The president's fiery rhetoric came as tensions mounted between the USA and North Korea.

"But we will see what happens".

Not everyone in the administration was following Trump's lead.

Meanwhile, Trump stood by his bellicose rhetoric on North Korea on Friday, saying eader Kim Jong Un "will truly regret it and he will regret it fast" if he issues an overt threat or attacks Guam or a United States ally. They have not articulated it to the American people.

The report quotes Xi as saying: "At present, the relevant parties must maintain restraint and avoid words and deeds that would exacerbate the tension on the Korean Peninsula".

TL: If they're not executed, yes.

"This man will not get away with what he is doing", Trump told reporters.
