President Donald Trump said Saturday that "I can't talk about" any plans his administration might have to counter North Korea's weapons aspirations but that "we're having some very good thoughts."

"I am trying to solve a problem in North Korea – which, by the way, is a real problem," Trump told Fox News host Jeanine Pirro in an interview broadcast Saturday.

Trump's comments came before Pyongyang test-fired another missile off the country's west coast early Sunday that flew about 430 miles, Pentagon and South Korean officials said.

The move came days after South Korean President Moon Jae-in took office on Wednesday as dictator Kim Jong Un pursues a nuclear-tipped missile that can reach the U.S. mainland.

The Trump administration has called the tests unacceptable and has swung between threats of military action and offers to talk.

A top North Korean diplomat said Saturday that Pyongyang was willing to meet with the Trump administration "if the conditions are set."

"They should have been stopped a long time ago," Trump told Pirro of Pyongyang. They should have been stopped by [President Barack] Obama and before.

"I remember when Clinton wrote in his book about the wonderful deal they made with North Korea," he said, referring to former President Bill Clinton's 2004 biography, "My Life."

His administration reached a nuclear arms deal with North Korea in 1994.

"They started making missiles the next day," Trump said.
