Trump says his North Korea comments 'may not be tough enough'

"President Trump stated that the United States is ready, along with its allies, to apply the full range of diplomatic, economic, and military measures to achieve that goal".
The rhetoric that US President Donald Trump has been using in connection with North Korea is reminiscent of former US President George W. Bush's statements on preventive war, Head of the Regional Security Department of the Defense Studies Center at the Russian Institute for Strategic Studies Sergei Yermakov said on Friday.
