U.S. President Donald Trump on Saturday (October 7) said in a tweet "only one thing will work" in dealing with North Korea after previous administrations had talked to Pyongyang without results. "Sorry, but only one thing will work!" Mulvaney said it was the first he had heard about the tweet, but said every bit of it was true. He had pointed out that any outbreak of violence would put the 25 million people of Seoul in danger of North Korean bombardment immediately.

The interview made headlines all across the Pacific Rim, and remains the leading story on the South Korean Yonhap News Agency website as of this writing.

Speaking to reporters on Saturday ahead of a trip to North Carolina, Trump said he had nothing more to clarify. Some suggested North Korea may have acquired the ability to reach the US Pacific coast with its Hwasong-14 ICBM, which was test-launched twice in July.

Trump said that despite these disagreements, he usually had a good relationship with Tillerson.

President Trump went further to say "We can not allow this dictatorship to threaten our nation or our allies with unimaginable loss of life", he said to his top military officers.

About 88 percent of the island is still without power, the Puerto Rico Energy Authority reported on Saturday. He suggested that the federal government use the Army Corps of Engineers to help fix the infrastructure.

The past several weeks covering Mr. Trumps remarks pertaining to North Korea, its NOT ruled out that military action could be used. Tillerson, in China, had said the United States is attempting to find a diplomatic solution to the ongoing escalation of tensions with North Korea.

The president has previously said the United States would "totally destroy" North Korea if necessary to protect itself and its allies from Pyongyang's nuclear threats.

"We currently are in a diplomatically led effort and how many times have you seen the UN Security Council vote unanimously, now twice in a row, to impose stronger sanctions on North Korea". Trump tweeted calling the whole meeting as a simple "waste of time". "I have this bad gut feeling that they really want conflict on this".

However, there were expectations that North Korea would do something incendiary on the same date a year ago, when the day passed without a bang. The POTUS threatened to completely sweep North Korea if the country doesn't live peacefully. Kim Jong Un also visited the mausoleum where his father and grandfather, "eternal president" Kim Il Sung, lie in state.
