North Korea launched a ballistic missile over Japan into the Pacific Ocean on Tuesday morning, which traveled nearly 1,700 miles.
The White House issued a statement from Trump following the latest missile launch, ending with a grave warning that echoed several other statements the president has directed at the reclusive country in the past few weeks, as tensions continue to rise between the two nations.
“The world has received North Korea’s latest message loud and clear: this regime has signaled its contempt for its neighbors, for all members of the United Nations, and for minimum standards of acceptable international behavior,” Trump said in a statement. “Threatening and destabilizing actions only increase the North Korean regime’s isolation in the region and among all nations of the world. All options are on the table.”

In response to the North’s latest launch, South Korea reportedly bombed a shooting range near its border with North Korea country as part of a military drill.
Earlier this month, Trump and North Korea exchanged escalating rhetoric. Trump threatened to rain down “fire and fury” on North Korea if it threatened the United States and several days later added on Twitter that the United States was “locked and loaded” in advance of any threat.
In response, North Korea threatened to send missiles at Guam, a small island territory of significance to the U.S. military, prompting the island’s government to issue a warning to residents on what to do if a missile strike occurred.
The North backed off that threat, prompting Trump to congratulate Kim Jong-un, the ruler of North Korea, for making a “very wise and well reasoned decision.” Last week, Trump said he felt as if the North now had “respect” for the United States following the ratcheting up of words.
