North Korea UN debates sanction with Donald trump

Kim said Trump would face "results beyond his expectation", without specifying what action North Korea would take next.

Donald Trump in NY for the UN General Assembly: He threatened to "totally destroy" North Korea if it threatened the USA, but North Korea's top diplomat compared his comments to "the sound of a barking dog".

Trump warned North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in his address that the United States, if threatened, would "totally destroy" his country of 26 million people.

Kim offered choice insults of his own. He also described the US president as "a rogue and a gangster fond of playing with fire".

Trump came up with his new nickname for Kim during a speech to world leaders at the United Nations General Assembly.

There was no immediate response from the White House. And we've made it clear that they need to step forward and be prepared to abandon the ballistic missile program and dismantle the nuclear weapons program.

The new menu item, the Poppy Burger, was named after Moore's character and the questionable burger she prepared in the film. "I had a six-minute shorter cut of the film and suddenly it felt like a three-hour movie", said Vaughn.

North Korea has raised the possibility of testing a hydrogen bomb in the Pacific as a war of words with the United States continues to escalate.

President Donald Trump announced Thursday that he had signed an executive order authorizing additional sanctions against North Korea by targeting individuals, companies and financial institutions that do business with what he called "this criminal rogue regime".

Mr Trump said "tolerance for this disgraceful practice must end now".

The order also targets North Korea's shipping and trade networks by putting a 180-day ban on vessels and aircraft that have visited the country from visiting the U.S.

In recent months, North Korea has launched a pair of intercontinental missiles believed capable of striking the continental United States and another pair that soared over Japanese territory. Trump's order also bans any aircraft or ship that has traveled to North Korea from landing in the United States.

In recent years, the United States has sought to expand the economic pressure by working through the global banking system, where the country has particular leverage because so much of worldwide trade is conducted in dollars.

China's central bank did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The president also said that Chinese President Xi Jinping had ordered Chinese banks to cease conducting business with North Korean entities.

Mnuchin said he'd spoken with a counterpart in China earlier Thursday.

China is North Korea's main trading partner and conduit for global transactions, and Washington has been pushing Beijing to scale back economic and financial ties to further isolate Pyongyang.

Trump emphasized that any tolerance for Kim Jon-un's destabilizing activities should now end and called on the global community to aim for complete denuclearization of North Korea.

Trump himself appeared to open the door for talks with North Korea, an option he'd previously ruled out.

The US has 28,500 troops stationed in the South, a legacy of the 1950-53 Korean War which ended in a ceasefire rather than a peace treaty. That development was reported by Reuters news agency on Thursday.
