In a statement Saturday, Macron said the situation "undermines the preservation of worldwide peace" and the North Korean regime "poses a serious threat to the security of its neighbors".

Soderberg criticizes the president's lack of diplomacy and she personally wishes that the global community increase pressure on North Korea rather than use outright force.

The Weekly Standard reported Wednesday that the White House, including the president's national security team, did not help Trump prepare his remarks on North Korea, which were delivered ahead of a meeting on the opioid crisis in the US and prompted by new reports that North Korea has escalated its nuclear program.

Trump's comment prompted North Korea's military to announce that it was considering an attack on the USA territory of Guam.

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

United States President Donald Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron have discussed North Korean issues and agreed to work to denuclearize North Korea.

The man behind the documentary "An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power" may not see eye-to-eye with Mr. Trump on environmental issues, but he told Newsweek for an interview published Friday that diplomatic crises over North Korea's nuclear weapons program is another story. It said Wednesday that plans for a strike near the island would be complete by mid-August.

Tensions around the Korean Peninsula started to rise in light of the implementation of the North Korean missile program.

He made comments Saturday while visiting his father's tomb in his ancestral hometown of Nagato in western Japan. "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.

Asked Friday if the USA was going to war, he said cryptically, "I think you know the answer to that". "They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen", Trump said.
