President Donald Trump took to Twitter Saturday to say that "only one thing will work" in dealing with North Korea after reports that it planned to test a long-range missile that could reach the U.S. — but he didn't say what that was.

Here are Trump's posts:

Heading to a Republican fund-raiser in North Carolina later Saturday, Trump was just as cryptic to reporters on the White House lawn.

"You'll figure that out pretty soon," the president said when asked about the tweets, saying after a follow-up question later: "We're going to see what happens."

The Russian RIA news agency on Friday quoted Anton Morozov, a Moscow parliament member, as saying that Pyongyang was readying tests of a missile that could reach the West Coast of the United States after visiting the country earlier this week.

The interview was disclosed by Reuters, which was unable to independently verify Morozov's comments.

"They are preparing for new tests of a long-range missile," he told the Russian news agency. "They even gave us mathematical calculations that they believe prove that their missile can hit the West Coast of the United States.

"As far as we understand, they intend to launch one more long-range missile in the near future," he added. "And in general, their mood is rather belligerent."

The Reuters report came after President Trump said Thursday that a group of military leaders he was being photographed with in the Oval Office was "the calm before the storm."

When reporters asked what the president meant, Trump said, "you'll find out."

He repeated the "calm" remark Friday before telling reporters "thank you very much" — and then winking and smiling.

When asked again what he meant, President Trump responded again, "you'll find out."

He smiled again. "We'll see," Trump said.

Tensions have escalated in recent weeks between the United States and Pyongyang over the continued test-firing of missiles and after North Korea said it test-exploded a hydrogen bomb.
