Trump posed for the Instagram photo, which was taken at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster on Wednesday.

The way that would work is that the president would consult as he desires with his top advisors.

Calling nuclear weapons the greatest threat to humanity, Trump called on "Russia, and the United States, and China, and pakistan and many other countries that have nuclear weapons" to get rid of them. I think there is still time for other measures. White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the "tone and strength of the message were discussed" but that the exact phrasing was "his own".

GEOFF BENNETT, BYLINE: Hey, Audie. "And if anything happens to Guam, there's gonna be big, big trouble in North Korea". It said the review should ensure America's nuclear deterrent is robust, ready and tailored to address 21st century threats. Here's what the president told reporters just before he attended a security briefing this afternoon. - Trump said he does not have any current plans to fire Justice Department special counsel Robert Mueller, who's investigating Russian meddling in the 2016 election. Maybe it wasn't tough enough.

Our bill is very simple: it says basically only Congress can declare war; you, Mr. President, cannot launch a first-strike of nuclear weapons without Congressional authorization. We also know that, if China were to enforce these sanctions and really cut North Korea off, North Korea would be in a much more hard position not to sit down and talk.

The Washington Post reported that the upgrade to America's nuclear arsenal was a continuation of a directive by former president Barack Obama and still many years from completion.

Seemingly unimpressed, North Korea's supreme leader Kim Jong-un and military came back the same day with a threat to teach America a "severe lesson", and sent word through the state news agency that plans are being dusted off for missile strikes against US military bases on the Pacific island territory of Guam.

We know so little about the North Korean regime, we don't know how they're going to take that kind of incendiary language. It's something they wanted because it allows the Trump administration to direct money toward expanding treatment facilities and also to providing emergency responders with anti-overdose medications. Every couple of days someone would disappear.

CORNISH: How did this come up in the public remarks? Instead of the silo-based interceptors being used, some argue a more fruitful approach would be to destroy or disable such missiles before they can be launched, possibly by cyberattack.

Despite his latest attempt to temper his words, President Trump is seen by a number of analysts as having moved the nation closer to nuclear war than at any time since the Cuban missile crisis of 1962.

Hours after Tillerson sought to ease tensions, Mattis issued a written statement that, while not as colorful as Trump's comments on Tuesday, was just as firm. So this afternoon, a reporter asked the president, should McConnell step aside as majority leader, as some conservative commentators have suggested?

Marco Rubio, a member of the Senate foreign affairs committee, defended President Donald Trump's stark warning to North Korea in a series of tweets Thursday morning.

BENNETT: And so remember; this is a president with approval ratings at historic lows who, as the head of the Republican Party, it seems is looking to shift the blame for the party's lack of legislative victories.

Most missile tests are off limits to missile defenses, because they don't go through forbidden areas; a shot just off a major US base would be fair game, though.

CORNISH: That's NPR's Geoff Bennett.
