Trump administration officials are considering military action as part of various options in response to North Korea's increased nuclear efforts and missile programs, a top U.S. official said Wednesday.
"What you've seen is a really integrated effort to prioritize diplomatic and informational aspects of national power," the official told Roll Call. "But also what you will see soon is using the economic dimension of national power, as well as the military preparations that are underway."
But when pressed on the feasibility of President Donald Trump electing to use military force against dictator Kim Jong Un, the official said: "I don't think we're going to describe those in any detail."
The president is considering a "broad range of options," the individual told Roll Call. Trump's choices, however, will depend on "how the situation develops in the future."
The report comes after Trump national security officials briefed senators on Pyongyang at a rare session at the White House.
Trump's options also include getting China and other allies to increase pressure on Kim and pushing the United Nations to toughen economic sanctions, the official said.
