The White House says that Trump - in a phone call Friday to President Xi Jinping (shee jihn-peeng) - saluted Xi for China's United Nations vote to impose tougher sanctions on North Korea. Guam is a United States territory in an area of the Pacific that North Korea has threatened to strike with missiles. "Hopefully, it will all work out", he said Friday.

DPRK stands for North Korea's official name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

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.

On Friday, Mr Trump tweeted that USA military solutions were "fully in place, locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely. And probably you could say as strong as they get". He dismissed criticism directed at his rhetoric, saying the only reason is "because it's me".

Earlier this week, President Donald Trump responded to information that North Korea may now be able to miniaturize nuclear weapons.

"If somebody else uttered the exact same words that I uttered they would say what a great statement, what a wonderful statement", Trump said, adding that there are "tens of millions of people in this country that are so happy with what I am saying". "Our foolish past leaders have allowed them to make hundreds of billions of dollars a year in trade, yet they do NOTHING for us with North Korea, just talk", he wrote on Twitter in July.

Earlier this week, Trump said that North Korea would be met with "fire and fury" if it made further threats against the USA, and then on Thursday, he suggested that those words may not have been "tough enough" after the threats from North Korea continued.

According to the White House, Trump and Xi affirmed that the recent adoption of a new UN Security Council resolution regarding North Korea was an important and necessary step toward achieving peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula.
