Trump vows to 'totally destroy North Korea' if threatened

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un recently said he sought "equilibrium" in military power with the US.

Mr Trump's most direct military threat to attack North Korea was his latest expression of concern about Pyongyang's repeated launching of ballistic missiles over Japan and underground nuclear tests. The United States is ready, willing and able, but hopefully this will not be necessary.

In a meeting with International Olympic Committee (IOC) President Thomas Bach, Moon said South Korea has always hosted global sports events successfully despite being technically at war with the North, according to a South Korean presidential official.

The United Nations Security Council on September 11 unanimously approved a new resolution, banning Pyongyang's textile exports and capping its oil imports. "Let's see how they do".

He thanked all those who backed the unanimous votes for the sanctions, especially China and Russian Federation, but deplored the fact that some nations continue to trade with the North, providing arms and financial support to a country that "imperils the world" with nuclear conflict. He also said President Trump's criticism of the Iranian nuclear agreement in the speech, and the implied possibility he may pull out of that deal, sends a message to Pyongyang that the USA can not be trusted.

In surprisingly hostile United Nations speech, Trump comes out swinging against Iran
Over the past week, Trump has signalled his frustrations with the Iranian nuclear deal that former President Barack Obama made. Warming the hearts of his core voters, Trump railed against North Korea giving the regime his harshest warning yet.

He added, cryptically: "I don't think you've heard the last of it, believe me".

Trump called the 2015 Iran nuclear deal negotiated by former President Barack Obama an embarrassment and hinted that he may not recertify the agreement when it comes up for a mid-October deadline.

Trump's speech included some of the "America First" nationalist themes of his presidency. And we'll be following that story and having much more coverage throughout the day. Trump warned that he had changed the rules of engagement for fighting terrorists around the world.

Since taking office, Trump has frequently tested worldwide cooperation. While he has not outlined his plans, the president suggested withdrawal is imminent. And he called on other Latin America countries to help deal with the crisis there. North Korea also test-launched two intercontinental ballistic missiles in July, proving they theoretically could hit a city in the continental U.S. "Nations of the world must take a greater role in promoting secure and prosperous societies in their own regions". "Just like you, the leaders of your countries, should and always put your countries first", said Trump, who assured the United Nations that the U.S. would not abdicate its leadership position in the world but wanted other countries to contribute more to their own security and to the United Nations as well. "This is the safe, responsible and humanitarian approach". But he was harshly critical of socialism, especially as practiced in Cuba and Venezuela.

His comments rattled the world leaders gathered before him in the green-marbled UN General Assembly hall, where minutes earlier UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres had appealed for statesmanship. Trump drew polite applause both before and after he spoke.

But Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu applauded Trump's remarks. Because they are a rogue nation in many ways, and I'm anxious about them.

But Trump also had his critics, including Sen. -South Korea military drills, Reuters reported.

Kim has threatened Guam, a U.S. territory in the Pacific, and has fired missiles over Japan, a United States ally.
