President Donald Trump talks about the North Korea's threat to Guam, the transgender ban in the military, thanked Russia for removing US diplomats, says he won't fire Robert Mueller and more during an impromptu press conference at his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey.
North Korea has fired a missile that flew over northern Japan before crashing into the sea, the Japanese government says. No effort was made by the Japanese to shoot down the missile, which was launched early in the morning local time, triggering safety warnings.
The missile broke into three pieces before it landed, local media reported.
On Saturday North Korea fired three short-range missiles into the sea off its eastern coast.
In the latest incident the Japanese government warned people in the missile's flight range to take precautions, but public broadcaster NHK said there was no signs of any damage.
US President Donald Trump has warned Pyongyang that "all options are on the table" after North Korea fired a missile over Japan early Tuesday.
Tuesday's launch was particularly provocative as it was North Korea's first ballistic missile to fly over Japan. Kim Jong Un's regime regularly fires missiles into the sea between its own territory and Japan.
"The world has received North Korea's latest message loud and clear: this regime has signaled its contempt for its neighbors, for all members of the United Nations, and for minimum standards of acceptable international behavior," Trump said in a statement, taking a more measured tone than in his previous remarks.
"Threatening and destabilizing actions only increase the North Korean regime's isolation in the region and among all nations of the world. All options are on the table."
Overnight, the U.S. flew bombers and fighter jets over South Korea in a show of force against Kim Jong Un after North Korea’s latest missile test and the threat of more to come. NBC chief foreign correspondent reports for TODAY.
Two days after North Korea flew a missile over Japan, the United States and South Korea staged their own show of force with state-of-the-art stealth fighters Thursday.
Four US F-35B fighter jets joined two US B-1B bombers and four South Korean F-15 fighter jets in the joint US-South Korean flyover of the Korean Peninsula, an official with the South Korean air force told CNN.
The exercise was designed to "strongly counter North Korea's repeated ballistic missile tests and development of nuclear weapons," the official said.
In a statement, the air force said the US bombers flew out of Guam and four stealth fighter jets from a US Marine Corps base in Japan.
President Donald Trump warned Sunday that the United States was considering stopping trade with any nation doing business with North Korea as a way of dealing with the nuclear threat from Pyongyang.
If carried out, that option could mean a halt to US trade with China, which has supported economic sanctions on North Korea but remains the key economic partner for the rogue nation.
Trump's trade threat came hours after he condemned North Korea's claimed test of a hydrogen bomb in a series of tweets Sunday morning, calling Pyongyang's words and actions "hostile and dangerous" and saying "talk of appeasement will not work."
"North Korea has conducted a major Nuclear Test. Their words and actions continue to be very hostile and dangerous to the United States," Trump wrote, adding that Pyongyang "has become a great threat and embarrassment to China, which is trying to help but with little success."
