President Donald Trump boasted about American military equipment that's being sent to South Korea, but said he hopes it never gets used against that country's northern neighbor.

Trump was asked about North Korea Thursday afternoon during a joint press conference in the East Room of the White House with Sheikh Sabah Al Ahmad Al Sabah, the emir of Kuwait.

"Military action would certainly be an option. Is it inevitable? Nothing's inevitable. It would be great if something else could be worked out," Trump said.

"Each day new equipment is delivered. New and beautiful equipment, the best in the world, the best anywhere in the world, by far. Hopefully, we're not going to have to use it on North Korea. If we do use it on North Korea, it will be a very sad day for North Korea."

North Korea has conducted several tests of its missile and nuclear programs this year and has threatened to strike the United States or one of its territories. Trump has responded by sending troops and ships to the region in a show of force.

It was reported this week that U.S. Navy SEALs are training a South Korean military team to take out North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in the event that war breaks out on the peninsula.

Trump said North Korea needs to clean up its act and start listening to the international community's warnings to curb its aggressive tone and actions.

"I can tell you that North Korea's behaving badly and it's gotta stop," he said.
