Washington D.C. [U.S.A], October 9:United States President Donald Trump on Monday took to Twitter, stating that their attempts to deal with North Korea have failed for more than two decades inspite of the fact that America has given "billions of dollars" and received nothing in return.

When asked what is the "one thing" that will work, Trump said: "Well, you'll figure that out pretty soon". "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". And on Saturday, he insisted "only one thing will work" to solve the North Korean nuclear impasse.

It's no secret that #Donald Trump often makes comments that come off as reckless or offensive to many people.

US Defence Secretary Jim Mattis told the US Army to be ready with military options on North Korea, but emphasised that efforts to deal with Pyongyang were being led diplomatically.

US President Donald Trump says previous administrations have talked to Pyongyang without results.

Trump said on Saturday he had a good relationship with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson but that Tillerson could be tougher.

His tweets sound particularly ominous given his recent rhetoric on North Korea.

Whilst the threat was not explicitly made out to be military action, Trump has suggested he is not afraid to take that step. But Trump, who tweeted last week that Tillerson is "wasting his time trying to negotiate with Little Rocket Man", seems intent on war. Donald Trump also added that the United States will not hold back force if needed to halt the missile and nuclear tests by North Korea.

"The United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea".

In Pyongyang on Saturday, Kim was telling his officials that North Korea's nuclear weapons were a "powerful deterrent" and that the Workers' Party of Korea would "victoriously conclude the standoff with the U.S.".
