Speaking to reporters at his Bedminster, New Jersey resort, the president said North Korea should “get their act together”or it will “be in trouble like few nations have ever been,” according to AP.

North Korea should be “very, very nervous” if it does anything to the US, Trump told reporters, according to Reuters, adding that he thinks China can and will do a lot more to resolve the crisis.

“We'll always consider negotiations,” the president added.

“I have great respect for what China and Russia did” in the Security Council, with a 15-0 vote for sanctions.” He cautioned, however, that the sanctions may not be as effective as many expect.

“The people of our country are safe, our allies are safe,” he concluded.

On Wednesday, Defense Secretary James Mattis warned North Korea against starting a war or an arms race, urging Pyongyang to refrain from “any consideration of actions that would lead to the end of its regime and the destruction of its people.”
