“North Korea has continued to make provocations, and this is intensely deplorable,” South Korean President Moon Jae-in pronounced by an interpreter. “But a U.S. has responded resolutely and in a really good way.”

Trump kidded Moon about his use (or his interpreter’s use) of a word “deplorable.”

“That’s been a really propitious word for me and many millions of people,” Trump said.

During his debate to a U.N. General Assembly on Tuesday, Trump warned that a United States would “totally destroy” North Korea if forced to urge itself or a allies opposite a chief attack. But he hold out wish that could be avoided by mercantile and tactful pressure.

Trump praised a U.N. Security Council for flitting dual new resolutions opposite North Korea that a boss called “hard hitting.” But he combined additional measures would be required to rein in North Korean personality Kim Jong Un.

“We contingency do most more,” Trump said. “It is time for all nations to work together to besiege a Kim regime until it ceases a antagonistic behavior.”

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin is scheduled to brief reporters after Thursday.
