Trump insisted in a tweet that 'only one thing will work' with North Korea


President Donald Trump tweeted Saturday afternoon, cryptically suggesting that "only one thing will work" in regard to dealing with North Korea and its nuclear weapons program.

“Presidents and their administrations have been talking to North Korea for 25 years, agreements made and massive amounts of money paid hasn't worked, agreements violated before the ink was dry, makings fools of U.S. negotiators,” he tweeted.

“Sorry, but only one thing will work!” the president added without specifying what that meant.

Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.) responded to the tweet, suggesting that Trump's resignation could be the "one thing" to de-escalate tensions that have been mounting between the U.S. and Pyongyang.

Trump has hurled vague threats and insults at North Korea and its leader Kim Jong Un in recent months.

"Just heard Foreign Minister of North Korea speak at U.N.," Trump tweeted in September. "If he echoes thoughts of Little Rocket Man, they won't be around much longer!"

North Korea reportedly took that as a declaration of war.

“Since the United States declared war on our country, we will have every right to make countermeasures, including the right to shoot down United States strategic bombers even when they are not inside the airspace border of our country," Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho told reporters in New York.

The White House later insisted that the U.S. has not declared war on North Korea.
