Trump warns North Korea's missiles will get better

President Donald Trump said after North Korea's latest failed rocket launch that communist leader Kim Jong-Un eventually will develop better missiles, and "we can't allow it to happen".

In a wide ranging interview for Face The Nation on CBS, he said he had not yet decided on whether the U.S. would launch military action against Kim Jong Un, but said he didn't want to give away "all our moves" anyway.

"So, this is something that we know we can not tolerate in terms of a risk to the American people".

President Donald Trump says he believes China's president has been putting pressure on North Korea as it pursues its missile and nuclear weapons programs.

He said North Korea poses "a grave threat, " not just to the United States and its Asian allies, but also to China. South Korea's navy has said it will hold drills with the US strike group.

The United States has deployed a naval strike group to the area led by the carrier USS Carl Vinson, which on Saturday began drilling with the South Korean navy to practice procedures for tracking and intercepting enemy ballistic missiles. The program's repeated failures over the past few years have given rise to suspicions of USA sabotage.

But, so far, perhaps nothing's happened. In recent weeks, the US has strengthened its defense posture in the region by sending warships and starting an early deployment of the THAAD missile defense system in South Korea. I mean, we'll see.

Japan Breaks From Military Tradition To Protect American Ship

Residents in the village of Seongj, where the missile defense system is being installed, scuffled with police on Sunday.

North Korea test-launched a missile on Saturday that appeared to have failed within minutes, its fourth successive failed launch since March.

They said the U.S. ship is expected to refuel other American warships, including the USS Carl Vinson carrier strike group.

"As long as America continues its hostile acts of aggression, we will never stop nuclear and missile tests", said Sok Chol Won, director of North Korea's Institute of Human Rights at the Academy of Social Sciences.

About 300 protesters faced off against 800 police and succeeded in blocking two US Army oil trucks from entering the site, local media reported.

Military action was "completely unacceptable", Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov told the council.

The Blue House said in a statement Sunday that McMaster and South Korea's Director of National Security Kim Kwan Jin spoke on the phone and reaffirmed a previous bilateral deal on cost-bearing for the THAAD deployment.
