THREATS FROM NORTH KOREA: Trump expresses anger over N. Korea
US President Donald Trump says that his government is very angry at what the Korean Peninsula has done, and is critical of the country's missile and nuclear development.
Asked whether a meeting with the North's leader Kim Jong Un is a possibility, President Trump replied he wouldn't say no, but that may be too late.
Trump said the US government appreciates China's move to halt coal imports from North Korea. He added that China has tremendous control over the North, and it could solve the security challenge posed by the country very easily if it wanted to.
As for cooperation with Japan and South Korea, Trump said accelerating a missile defense system for the allies is one of many things that can be done, and that there are talks of a lot more than that.
