An investigation by Lighthizer could possibly lead to tariffs against China and action through the World Trade Organization.

Friday morning, Trump tweeted that US military solutions were "locked and loaded" in case North Korea followed through on its threat.

"We would like to emphasize that the Chinese government has always attached importance to intellectual property protection", a spokesman said.

Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis told reporters Thursday the U.S.is focused on a diplomatic approach to the North Korean threat but that it's his job to have military options ready if they're needed.

But analysts have cautioned that Trump faces a huge challenge in his desire to significantly reduce the US trade deficit with China, which a year ago stood at more than $300 billion.
