Trump again cites 'military' option against North Korea

In a phone call with Trump Friday night, Xi Jinping said he wanted both sides to avoid "words and actions" that would make the situation worse, per the BBC, citing Chinese media.

"I think this was aimed primarily at China to let China know how serious we are about this; to get China to re-engage, not just to play games the way they've been doing since the meeting at Mar-a-Lago", he said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe".

DPRK stands for North Korea's official name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

Rep. David Cicilline urged Speaker Paul Ryan on Friday to call back the House from its August recess in order to debate legislation that would require congressional approval for a US pre-emptive strike.

On Friday, the Defense Ministry said it was deploying four of Japan's surface-to-air Patriot interceptors in western Japan to respond to a possible risk of fragments falling from missiles.

Trump has pushed China to pressure North Korea to halt a nuclear weapons program that is nearing the capability of targeting the United States.

He continued: "I hope they are going to fully understand the gravity of what I said".

Despite the bombastic rhetoric exchanged between North Korean and American leaders this week, the Trump administration has been quietly engaged in back-channel diplomacy with North Korea for several months, according to a source familiar with the negotiations. But I will tell you, we have tens of millions of people in this country that are so happy with what I am saying, because they say finally we have a president that's sticking up for our nation and frankly, sticking up for our friends and our allies.

North Korea has lashed back at the USA following President Donald Trump's latest warnings.
