Trump Says 'Only One Thing' Will Work in North Korea in Latest Cryptic Message

Christal Hayes

President Donald Trump said there's "only one thing" that can be done in the ongoing situation with North Korea— but he didn't elaborate.

It's the latest cryptic message from Trump, who earlier this week called a meeting with military leaders "the calm before the storm." He didn't elaborate on what the storm might be. 

Trump sent a series of tweets Saturday afternoon, blasting negotiations in the communist country.

"Presidents and their administrations have been talking to North Korea for 25 years, agreements made and massive amounts of money paid hasn't worked, agreements violated before the ink was dry, makings fools of U.S. negotiators," he posted. "Sorry, but only one thing will work!"

He did not say what that "one thing" might be but Trump previously threatened to "totally destroy" the country during a speech to the U.N. 

The White House did not immediately respond for comment.

Tensions with North Korea are at an all-time high, as Trump and the country's leader, Kim Jong Un, continue to trade insults and threats as the communist country amps up its missile capabilities. 

Last month, Kim told Trump he was “mentally deranged,” a “dotard” and that he would “tame” him with “fire.” Trump fired back, calling Kim a “madman who doesn’t mind starving or killing his people” and he would be tested “like never before.”

Trump is planning Saturday evening to appear on former Governor Mike Huckabee's new television network TBN, or Trinity Broadcasting Network.
