Trump praises Xi for new UN sanctions on N.Korea

Trump: 'Fire and fury' talk on N. Korea 'wasn't tough enough'

Trump's advisers offered contradictory statements in an attempt to clarify the president's dire warnings over Pyongyang's nuclear and missile program، highlighting the conflicting views in the White House about how to deal with North Korea، analysts say.

Tensions between the US and North Korea have risen to their highest point of Trump's presidency in recent days.

The phone call with the French President came hours after Trump spoke with Chinese President Xi Jinping.

Earlier this week, nuclear-armed North Korea threatened to strike the United States and its Pacific territory of Guam.

Trump also reiterated their mutual commitment to denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula, it added.

Rep. Keith Ellison (D., Minn.) quickly walked back remarks he made Friday that North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un was acting "more responsible" than President Donald Trump, saying it was "tailor-made for somebody to misuse".

Discussing the escalating war of words between the US and North Korea over the latter's rogue nuclear program, Ellison raised eyebrows by saying the North Korea's despotic leader was acting better than the USA president. China is the North's biggest economic partner and source of aid, but says it alone can't compel Pyongyang to end its nuclear and missile programs. "Hopefully Kim Jong Un will find another path!" "And as I said, they will be met with the fire and fury and, frankly, power, the likes of which this world has never seen before".

Asked Friday if the USA was going to war, he said cryptically, "I think you know the answer to that".
