Despite Criticism Of UN, Trump Set To Attend Meeting Of World Leaders

Trump will meet with South Korean President Moon Jae-in and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly in NY next Thursday, McMaster said.

President Donald Trump and his top national security advisers said Friday there are military options available for dealing with the North Korea crisis, despite some experts and former Trump allies saying that there are no good options for the region.

He said North Korea's launch hours earlier showed Pyongyang's "utter contempt for its neighbors and for the entire world community". He backed up his words with action, ordering a test launch of South Korean missiles into the sea, on a trajectory precisely long enough to have wiped out the launch site for North Korea's ICBM if the weapons were aimed in that direction.

He will also meet the leaders of France and Israel to discuss, amongst other issues, Iran and, as McMaster said, its "destabilizing behavior, including its violation of the sovereignty of nations across the Middle East".

"We try and push through as many diplomatic options as we have", Haley said.

BENNETT: Haley and national security adviser H.R. McMaster outlined the president's goals for next week's United Nations summit.

During his speech, Trump condemned North Korea's latest destabilizing action and indicated that the U.S.is prepared to respond militarily.

And while the first two may be familiar in USA post-war diplomacy, the third is a loaded term in worldwide relations, hinting at Trump's "America First" agenda.




On Thursday, North Korea launched a missile over Japan for the second time in less than a month. Some 25 million people live in the metropolitan area of Seoul, U.S. ally South Korea's capital, well within range of the North's extensive artillery.

The Trump administration appears to be reaching its limit with North Korea.

McMaster sent a mixed message on Friday, insisting that the United States retained a "military option" in dealing with North Korea even while calling on "everyone to do everything we can to address the global problem short of war".

Trump's United Nations envoy called North Korea "reckless".

Experts have long questioned if the US could indeed attack North Korea, given its ability to cause massive casualties south of the border.

"For Trump's populist base-as well as conservative nationalist pundits like Breitbart executive chairman, and former White House official, Stephen K. Bannon-the UN is a globalist conspiracy to tie down the United States like Gulliver", writes Stewart M. Patrick for the Council on Foreign Relations.

"I don't think that he'll stray too much outside of the boundaries of that", Collins said.
