|President Trump has determined a course of action for responding to North Korea’s continued nuclear missile development program, a senior administration official told reporters Wednesday, with U.S. military preparations “underway” for potential action.
“What the president has done is he’s made a decision for us to pursue a certain course,” the official told reporters in the White House briefing room, “and that course obviously has a number of options associated with it depending on how the situation develops in the future.
The official, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said Trump plans include “a broad range of options, obviously, across all elements of national power and multinational power in connection with North Korea.”
“What you’ve seen is really an integrated effort to prioritize diplomatic and informational aspects of national power, but also what you’ll see soon is using the economic dimension of national power as well as the military preparations that are underway,” the official said, barely 100 yards from where the entire U.S. Senate was receiving a briefing on the administration’s strategy for North Korea.
