According to officials who spoke to the New York Times, the White House has become irritated at the Pentagon for being reluctant to give the White House military options on how to address  Kim Jong-un’s regime. Giving Trump “too many options” might “increase the odds that he will act," the report states.

Part 2: Trump says it will be hard to unify country without a ‘major event’

“I would love to be able to bring back our country into a great form of unity,” Trump said. “Without a major event where people pull together, that’s hard to do. But I would like to do it without that major event because usually that major event is not a good thing.”

Trump spoke about creating a more united country during a lunch with a number of television news anchors. Trump said the United States has long been divided, including during the impeachment of former president Bill Clinton. Trump also said that Americans usually come together during times of suffering.
