"Hopefully it will all work out", he told reporters in Bedminster, New Jersey.
McMaster also said while poised militarily, the U.S. is exploring other avenues to confront the threat from Kim's weapons program. U.S. officials then told NBC that Washington has a plan for a preemptive strike on North Korean missile sites with bombers stationed in Guam, should Trump order it.
"The president's rhetoric could be aimed at China, but largely it is aimed at North Korea, trying to deter", Roehrig said.
Aggression in diplomacy - telling the Koreans that the U.S. is "locked and loaded", and will bring "fire and fury" - are counterproductive and senseless.
