Trump again cites 'military' option against North Korea

"The previous three presidents were not able to find an adequate solution [to the North Korea crisis], so he can't be blamed for all this".

In an apparent response to Trump's tweet, a statement issued by North Korea's official KCNA news agency claimed the president is "driving the situation on the Korean peninsula to the brink of a nuclear war".

"The worldwide community is shoulder to shoulder in ensuring North Korea stops its aggressive acts".

The dollar slid to an eight-week low against the yen on Friday but was slightly firm against a basket of major currencies. Energy stocks fell along with crude prices as investors kept an eye on the latest company earnings and geopolitical news.

The White House says Trump also told Xi he looked forward to seeing him in China later this year.

Jamil Jaffer, founder of the National Security Institute at George Mason University's Antonin Scalia Law School in Arlington, Virginia, said Trump's "muscular response" to North Korea was "the exact type of resolve we need to force the hand" of Pyongyang's "Chinese patrons".

President Donald Trump is seeking continued help from China's president in addressing the threat posed by North Korea's nuclear developments. They may continue launching missile tests but they don't want a war, and the USA doesn't want military action either. China is the North's biggest economic partner and source of aid, but says it alone can't compel Pyongyang to end its nuclear and missile programs. North Korea responded by saying it was considering a plan to attack Guam and dismissed Trump's warnings as a "load of nonsense". Friday morning, Trump tweeted that the military was "locked and loaded" should North Korea "act unwisely". Trump's comments, however, do not appear to be backed by significant military mobilization on either side of the Pacific, and an important, quiet diplomatic channel remains open.
