President Donald Trump called North Korean leader Kim Jong Un "obviously a madman" and said he "will be tested like never before" in a tweet early Friday morning, following a week of escalating rhetoric between the two countries.

Now the standoff is between Kim Jong Un, who seems even more reckless and unhinged than his predecessors, and Donald Trump, the most brash and unpredictable president we've ever had.

Shanghai: China said on Saturday it will ban exports of some petroleum products to North Korea, as well as imports of textiles from the isolated North, in line with a UN Security Council resolution passed after Pyongyang's latest nuclear test.

Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif., appeared on San Diego television station KUSI and said North Korea presents a "clear and present danger" to the United States and the rest of the world.

"World leaders [are] taking seriously President Trump's actions ― not his threats, not his words", Conway said Friday during an appearance on "Fox & Friends".

He said the US' goal is "complete denuclearisation" of North Korea.

China's official Xinhua news agency said the epicentre was roughly at the same place as a similar shallow quake on September 3, which turned out to be caused by North Korea's sixth and largest nuclear test. North Korea later fired a ballistic missile over Japan and the US military flew powerful bombers and stealth fighter jets over the Korean Peninsula and near Japan in a show of force against the North.

"I will make the man holding the prerogative of the supreme command in the US pay dearly for his speech calling for totally destroying [North Korea]", he added.

"Kim Jong Un needs to realize we're not playing games here, we're not posturing".

Trump did not mention North Korea's oil trade.
