President Donald Trump said there is always a worry about a possible nuclear war with North Korea.
In an interview on a CNN affiliate in Wisconsin, the president conceded: "Look, you always have to be concerned."
"You don't know exactly who you're dealing with," he said. "I had a great great meeting with the president of China, and that meeting tells me a lot, and you've seen a lot of things happen."
"They have a pretty good power, not a great power perhaps, but a pretty good power over North Korea," he continued. "We're gonna see what happens. It's a very, very tricky situation."
The response came after North Korea's UN ambassador warned U.S. actions had "created a dangerous situation in which thermonuclear war may break out at any moment on the peninsula and poses a serious threat to world peace and security."
"Now I'm put in a position where he actually has nuclear, and we're gonna have to do something about it," Trump said. "Hopefully he wants peace, and we want peace, and that's going to be the end determination, but we're going to see what happens."
