Trump Says Administration will ‘Handle’ North Korea After Latest Missile Test

On Monday, President Donald Trump promised that his administration will “handle” North Korea, just days after the nation conducted another test of an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM).

“We’ll handle North Korea. We’ll be able to handle North Korea. It will be handled. We handle everything,” Trump told reporters at the White House during a Cabinet meeting.

The Korean Central News Agency said North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un expressed “great satisfaction” after the Hwasong-14 missile traveled 620 miles, reaching a maximum height of 2,314 miles, before landing in the water near the Japanese coast, according to The Associated Press.

The North Korean ICBM, launched late Friday evening, flew for about 45 minutes, five minutes longer than the nation’s first ICBM test July 4.

The regime now claims to have the capability to deliver a “large-sized, heavy nuclear warhead” on its ICBM. Kim said the test put the “entire” U.S. mainland in range, adding that his country now has the capability to fire at “random regions and locations at random times.”

If what the regime says is true, a North Korean missile could pose a threat to large areas of the U.S. mainland, according to multiple analysts.

The Union of Concerned Scientists said the missile could have a theoretical range of at least 6,500 miles, which would put Chicago in its range.

On Sunday, the U.S. military flew two B-1 bombers over the Korean peninsula and conducted a successful test of the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) system in Alaska as a show of force in retaliation against North Korea’s latest provocation.

Trump also expressed his disappointment in China Saturday for doing little to curb North Korea’s provocative nuclear missile program.

“I am very disappointed in China,” Trump tweeted. “Our foolish past leaders have allowed them to make hundreds of billions of dollars a year in trade, yet they do NOTHING for us with North Korea, just talk. We will no longer allow this to continue. China could easily solve this problem!”

Gen. Terrence J. O’Shaughnessy, commander of the Pacific Air Forces, said Saturday that diplomacy remains the preferred option to deal with the North Korean threat, but added that the U.S. is “ready to respond with rapid, lethal, and overwhelming force at a time and place of our choosing.”

Meanwhile, U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley said Sunday that something more than another Security Council resolution will be needed to send a message to North Korea.

“An additional Security Council resolution that does not significantly increase the international pressure on North Korea is of no value,” Haley said. “In fact, it is worse than nothing, because it sends the message to the North Korean dictator that the international community is unwilling to seriously challenge him.”
