WATCH: White House Press Conference With HR McMaster and Nikki Haley LIVE STREAM

Asked outside if the U.S. was running out of options when it comes to North Korea Trump mouthed the word'no to a reporter. The journalist asked again this time adding the word diplomatic and Trump said the same thing

His administration has recently signaled that he is likely to say no, raising the specter of renewed USA sanctions and the possibility that the deal would fall apart.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in has scheduled a National Security Council meeting to discuss the launch. "They've violated so many different elements and they've also violated the spirit of that deal".

McMaster said there is a military option against provocative acts by Pyongyang, but that "it's not what we would prefer to do". "We can never tolerate that North Korea trampled on the worldwide community's strong, united resolve towards peace that has been shown in UN resolutions and went ahead again with this outrageous act", he said on Friday. But, unlike past presidents, Trump is promoting his "America First" agenda, and he has called for slashing US financial contributions to the United Nations.

McMaster said that reform of the very much on the table at the meeting in general, with focus on ideas for making the notoriously inefficient organization, whose biennial core budget is $5.4 billion, more streamlined. Only now, the threat is heightened.

"Earlier, National Security Adviser Herbert McMaster also told a White House new briefing that there is a military option to deal with the regime but it's not what the US would prefer to do".

Trump himself warned last month that he would unleash "fire and fury" on the North if it continues to threaten the U.S. And the president and other administration officials have repeatedly insisted that they are considering military options for dealing with Pyongyang. But the North has ignored countless global reproaches previously. McMaster, also an Army lieutenant general, called on "all nations to address this problem short of war".

And true freshman Anthony Hines tallied six tackles, with two of those coming behind the line of scrimmage. This week, they trail the Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns 21-14 at halftime, and they're at home.

"For those who have said, and been commenting about a lack of a military option, there is a military option", McMaster said.

By overwhelming majorities, Americans share the ideals embodied in the UN Charter and support USA membership in the world body. "What's different, I think, about this approach to North Korea is worth noting". North Korea also has the world's largest standing army.

President Donald Trump has derided the U.N for its "utter weakness and incompetence" and even pledged to cut us taxpayer funding that contributes to its budget.

Haley said recent sanctions against North Korea had "strangled their economic situation", and there was "not more to do diplomatically".

The president, making his first speech before the United Nations this week, will be in an institution that he derided as recently as December, tweeting that the United Nations is a "club for people to get together, talk and have a good time". United Nations officials have criticized him for attacks on the press and for his response to violence at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.
