America's ambassador to the United Nations is raising the prospect of USA military action against North Korea if the North continues its missile and nuclear tests.

Nikki Haley says North Korea will be "destroyed" if it continues with what she describes as "reckless" behavior.

Trump's own account of the conversation, which kicked off an unbridled salvo of early morning tweets, struck a less diplomatic tone.

North Korea has launched a trio of missiles in recent weeks and tested a bomb that was its most powerful to date. Long gas lines forming in North Korea.

The DPRK reportedly fired a missile over Japan's northern island Hokkaido and into the Pacific Ocean on Friday.

Trump has said the U.S. and its allies will not be intimidated by the reclusive nation. New U.N. sanctions cut oil exports to North Korea. "We're trying every other possibility that we have but there's a whole lot of military options on the table".

"Forget it. Until somebody solves the part of the equation that shows me that 10 million people in Seoul don't die in the first 30 minutes from conventional weapons, I don't know what you're talking about", he said.

Donald Trump let loose on Twitter Sunday with a shoot-from-the-hip volley of posts referring to North Korea's leader Kim Jong-Un as "Rocket Man" - and picturing himself taking out Hillary Clinton with a golf ball.
