President Donald Trump said Saturday that he “would not be happy” if North Korea conducts a nuclear test, adding that the country’s recent test launch was “a small missile” and leader Kim Jong Un is “going to have to do what he has to do.”
“I would not be happy if he does a nuclear test,” Trump said in an interview on CBS’ “Face the Nation.” “I can tell you also that I don’t believe the president of China, who is a very respected man, will be happy either.”
Trump’s comments come after North Korea earlier this month failed in its attempt to launch a missile, which did not leave the country’s territory.
Trump said Kim Jong Un is “going to have to do what he has to do,” in regard to testing missiles, but said “he understands we’re not going to be very happy.”
The president also said the recent test launch involved a smaller missile than the U.S. expected.
“This was a small missile. This was not a big missile,” he said. “This was not a nuclear test, which he was expected to do three days ago. We’ll see what happens.”
When asked by host John Dickerson whether the U.S. will use military force against the secretive regime, Trump did not rule it out.
