White House expected to preview Trump's first United Nations summit

Trump has threatened "fire and fury" in response to North Korea's threats. And he comes out with US being very strong in the end. "That creates openings for other leaders like President Emmanuel Macron of France to step up and say that actually they are the guys who are going to lead the United Nations more effectively from now on". While Washington warns of military options, it says it still wants a peaceful solution.

"After seeing your capabilities and commitment here today, I am more confident than ever that our options in addressing this threat are both effective and overwhelming", Trump said in his address to air force personnel and families on the 70th anniversary of the US Air Force.

Trump said the North had "once again shown its utter contempt for its neighbors and for the entire world community".

As president-elect, he called the United Nations. Only now, the threat is heightened.

The North Korean state-run newspaper Rodong Sinmun on Friday said in an editorial, "If the USA continues to walk on the current course, we will take stronger actions for our self-defense".

The White House said on Friday (Sept 15) that President Donald Trump will meet the leaders of Japan and South Korea in NY next week to discuss the "urgent" threat posed by North Korea and dismissed claims there was no military option to dealing with Pyongyang. North Korea test-fired a ballistic missile with the range to reach Guam early Friday, its latest in a series of provocations, and the Trump administration is seeking to extend and strengthen the Iranian nuclear deal that Obama signed and Trump has repeatedly maligned.

North Korea launched what appeared to be an intermediate-range ballistic missile over northern Japan early Friday (local time), defying worldwide calls to halt its provocations. But the North has ignored countless global reproaches previously.

"For those who have been commenting about the lack of a military option, there is a military option", he said. Though they aren't their top choices for the region, Haley and McMaster said, they are available to the President.

BENNETT: As President Trump in the role of statesman next week projects to the world his impression of the United Nations and his vision for American foreign policy.

"China supplies North Korea with most of its oil".

And while the first two may be familiar in USA post-war diplomacy, the third is a loaded term in worldwide relations, hinting at Trump's "America First" agenda.

The US ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, said trade with North Korea would be cut 90 per cent after the "massive sanctions" package agreed by the Security Council.

President Donald Trump will use his debut speech to the UN General Assembly next week to offer warmth to the United States' allies and warnings to its adversaries. She expected a Trump call for maximum pressure on North Korea. "So, having said that, I have no problem with kicking it to (Defense Secretary James) Mattis because I think he has plenty of options".
