Trump's warning came after the North threatened to fire ballistic missiles over Japan towards the US Pacific island of Guam. "Rather than let that take effect and squeeze the North Koreans and get them back from the brink, we're escalating it and using language that President Kim uses in North Korea".
Carter also said China's influence of China in Pyongyang "seems to be greatly reduced since Kim Jong Un became the North Korean leader in December 2011".
Just as we reach the 72nd anniversary of the nuclear bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Trump is making thinly veiled threats to again use USA nuclear weapons if North Korea continues the same behavior. "Our leaders need to encourage talks between North Korea and other countries, especially China and Russian Federation".
The warm words exchanged between Xi and Trump Friday night in the US masked underlying tensions between Beijing and Washington over how to deal with the errant regime in Pyongyang.
North Korea has reportedly been threatening to attack the USA territory of Guam more than 2,000 miles southeast of North Korea in the Pacific Ocean.
According to the White House, Trump and Xi affirmed that the recent adoption of a new UN Security Council resolution regarding North Korea was an important and necessary step toward achieving peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula. "Nobody loves a peaceful solution better than President Trump".
The man behind the documentary "An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power" may not see eye-to-eye with Mr. Trump on environmental issues, but he told Newsweek for an interview published Friday that diplomatic crises over North Korea's nuclear weapons program is another story.
"The president's rhetoric could be aimed at China, but largely it is aimed at North Korea, trying to deter", Roehrig said.
Markets Right Now: Stocks open lower
Eight of the 11 major S&P sectors were lower, with the consumer discretionary index's 0.59 percent fall leading the decliners. Traders sold off financial stocks amid speculation that the Fed will decide to hold off on raising interest rates next month.
Trump's "firm break with 20-plus years of failed American policy on North Korea represents the one chance we might have to forestall a massive conflict on the Korean peninsula", said Jaffer in an email.
The Chinese foreign ministry said Xi urged Trump to avoid "words and deeds" that would "exacerbate" the already-tense situation and to exercise restraint and seek a political settlement.
Developments regarding the situation with North Korea may remain in focus next week, although traders are also likely to keep an eye on reports on retail sales, housing starts, and industrial production. They may continue launching missile tests but they don't want a war, and the USA doesn't want military action either.
