“We’ll take care of it,” Trump says about North Korean nuclear program

President Trump tells reporters U.S. is watching North Korea's moves "very closely"

The United States is watching North Korea's recent maneuvers "very closely," and will "take care of it" if the country makes more advances in its nuclear weapons program, U.S. President Donald Trump told reporters at the White House on Monday.

Trump's remarks come one day after his top envoy for the DPRK, Stephen Biegun, arrived in Seoul for a series of high-level meetings with his South Korean counterparts about the fate of long-stalled nuclear negotiations with Pyongyang.
