Democratic Senate leader calls Trump's 'Rocket Man' remark at United Nations 'risky'

If the US exhausts diplomatic options on North Korea, the USA military would "take care of it", Haley said on CNN's "State of the Union" program Sunday morning.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has pledged to continue the weapons programs, saying his country is nearing its goal of "equilibrium" in military force with the United States.

The meeting will be held during the annual General Assembly gathering of world leaders at the United Nations where Mr Trump will meet the leaders of Japan and South Korea on the sidelines to address the crisis. He is scheduled to address the world body, which he has criticized as weak and incompetent, on Tuesday.

U.S. President Donald Trump and South Korea's President Moon Jae-in have agreed to toughen sanctions against North Korea in a bid to curb the North's nuclear ambitions.

Trump has threatened Kim about his pursuit of a nuclear arsenal in violation of global rule, with the United Nations Security Council earlier this month imposing more economic sanctions, including cutting off petroleum supplies.

"If I were giving the president advice, I would have said avoid using 'Rocket Man, '" Schumer said during a press conference at the U.S. Capitol.

Haley warned that a war would mean the destruction of North Korea. She says war is undesirable but adds that "something has got to be done" if North Korea continues to threaten the USA and its allies. North Korea also recently tested what it said was a hydrogen bomb.

Feinstein said that a freeze of both its nuclear program and missile arsenal, rather than ending them, would be more palatable to North Korea and to China, who fears the United States goal is toppling Kim.

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said North Korea was starting to "feel the pinch".

Haley's warning comes in stark contrast made by former USA state department officials who say there's still room to engage North Korea diplomatically.

"We have pretty much exhausted all the things that we can do at the Security Council at this point", Haley told CNN's State of the Union.

Mattis said after Kim tested a hydrogen bomb earlier this month that the US will answer any threat from the North with a "massive military response, a response both effective and overwhelming".

Trump has threatened to rain "fire and fury" on North Korea. Though they aren't their top choices for the region, Haley and McMaster said, they are available to the President.

"If North Korea keeps on with this reckless behaviour, if the United States has to defend itself or defend its allies in any way, North Korea will be destroyed". "And we all know that, and none of us want that".

"If North Korea does not have UDMH, it can not threaten the United States, it's as simple as that", said Sen.

McMaster also addressed published reports that Trump has changed his mind about withdrawing the USA from a global climate agreement.

Fox News' Greg Palkot contributed reporting to this story.

Asked on CNN whether the Trump administration should continue to deny the North diplomatic talks until it ends its nuclear program, Sen. McMaster also said the reports are false. "Too bad!" Trump said in a Twitter post on Sunday morning.

After Friday's attack in London, Trump tweeted that "the travel ban into the United States should be far larger, tougher and most specific-but stupidly, that would not be politically correct!"

White House national security adviser HR McMaster said on Friday, after the latest North Korean missile launch, that the United States was running out of patience: "We've been kicking the can down the road, and we're out of road".
