President Donald Trump speaks about North Korea during an opioid-related briefing at Trump’s golf estate in Bedminster, New Jersey, U.S., August 8, 2017.

North Korea state media said: “Sound dialogue is not possible with such a guy (President Trump) bereft of reason and only absolute force can work on him.”

President Trump promised to increase defense spending by “many billions of dollars” because of North Korea and “other reasons having to do with the anti-missile.”

At the same time, Trump told reporters Thursday that his warning of bringing “fire and fury” to North Korea wasn’t “tough enough”.

“If anything, maybe that statement wasn’t tough enough,” Trump said, refusing to state how much further the statement should have gone.
