Trump warns North Korea against making 'overt' threats

Rubio Defends Trump These Complaints About Fire and Fury Rhetoric Are Ridiculous

The White House statement on the call said the two leaders agreed that North Korea must stop its "provocative and escalatory behavior", though it didn't mention Xi's plea to Trump as well.

During the call, Trump also informed Xi that he plans to direct his administration to investigate Chinese trade practices tomorrow.

Macron had joined a chorus of worldwide voices urging restraint in the crisis, which has alarmed the global community as Trump has engaged in days of verbal sparring with Pyongyang.

Rep. David Cicilline urged Speaker Paul Ryan on Friday to call back the House from its August recess in order to debate legislation that would require congressional approval for a US pre-emptive strike.

France is a member of the Security Council, which approved fresh sanctions on North Korea this month for its recent intercontinental ballistic missile testing. "Hopefully, it will all work out", he said Friday.

Meanwhile, Japan's defense ministry deployed a missile interception system to military bases in four prefectures yesterday, video from the four locations showed.

DPRK stands for North Korea's official name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea. Pyongyang identified three of the prefectures as the regions over which its missiles would fly on the way toward the USA territory.

The president appeared to draw another red line that would trigger a USA attack against North Korea and "big, big trouble" for its leader, Kim Jong Un.

As the crisis has unfolded, Trump has alternated praising China for its help and chiding it for not doing more. And if he utters one threat, in the form of an overt threat, which by the way he has been uttering for years, and his family has been uttering for years, or if he does anything with respect to Guam, or any place else that's an American territory or an American ally, he will truly regret it and he will regret it fast.

"China can bring North Korea to its knees".

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

"I get it, I understand wanting to say that, but this is like a hostage situation".

He continued: "I hope they are going to fully understand the gravity of what I said".

Neighbouring powers have urged restraint.

China's president delivered a direct message to President Trump: Ease up on the North Korea rhetoric.

President Donald Trump warned that North Korea would "face fire and fury like the world has never seen" if Pyongyang keeps threatening the United States.
