Trump on Tuesday raised the specter of nuclear war against North Korea if it continued to threaten the U.S.

The US Department of State on Thursday issued an updated travel warning for North Korea to include information about the impending tourist ban.

"The president spoke to him, to Kim Jong-un, in a that language Secretary [of State Rex] Tillerson has said, and said this morning, is the kind of language Kim Jong-un will understand", Nauert said.

Tillerson insisted the US isn't signaling a move toward military action, while it pursues a policy of sanctions and isolation of North Korea.

Speaking earlier today on his way home from Asia, he credited Trump with sending a strong message to the North Korean leader on the "unquestionable" US ability to defend itself, so as to prevent "any miscalculation". But Tillerson told reporters that nothing he's seen or knows of in the last day dramatically changed the situation.

"Our nation will act to shut down North Korea's nuclear program", Barrasso said in a statement.

Mattis also stressed that while the State Department is seeking a diplomatic resolution, the US and its allies are prepared to defeat any armed threat.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said "reckless rhetoric is not a strategy to keep America safe".
