Trump warns North Korea against making 'overt' threats

"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".

Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) defended President Trump's threat to unleash "fire and fury" on North Korea Thursday, saying the president's comments were meant to put pressure on China.

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

DPRK stands for North Korea's official name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea. As China reissues its calls for calm between the United States and North Korea and warns Donald Trump not to "play with fire".

"What I would say here ladies and gentleman, my portfolio, my mission, my responsibility is to have military options should they be needed", he said.

A number of Trump administration officials, including the president himself, have publicly commented on the recent threats made by North Korea, including a proposed strike on the waters off Guam, a US territory in the western Pacific.

Asked Friday if the USA was going to war, he said cryptically, "I think you know the answer to that".
