Speaking alongside vice president Mike Pence, Trump also said that China could do "a lot more" to pressure Pyongyang to end its nuclear weapons program, despite his ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley paying tribute to the Communist country when they backed the U.S. motion for further sanctions at the Security Council meeting on Saturday.

Trump continued to ramp up the rhetoric with a post on Twitter this morning indicating that the prepared to take military action against North Korea.
