President Trump Takes Aim at North Korea's 'Rocket Man'

President Trump Takes Aim at North Korea's 'Rocket Man' Read Transcript

North Korea's ambassador was in the front row

but was seen leaving before President Trump spoke

before the 193 members of the United Nations.

The commander in chief put the rogue nation on notice.

The president called on delegates

to work together against North Korea's nuclear program,

stating, "if the righteous many do not confront the wicked few,

then evil will triumph."

Rocket Man is on a suicide mission for himself

and for his regime.

ERIK ROSALES: While the president praised recent UN

sanctions against Pyongyang, he emphasized

his administration would take action

if Kim Jong-un continues to threaten the United States

and destabilize East Asia.

No nation on Earth has an interest

in seeing this band of criminals arm itself with nuclear weapons

and missiles.

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.

It was a very strong speech.

I don't think I've ever heard a president threaten

to destroy another country.

ERIK ROSALES: "CBN News" spoke with author and senior editor

for the "Washington Free Beacon," Bill Gertz.

He believes North Korea's already proven sanctions

are ineffective.

His idea, information warfare.

That's the idea of getting the country wired up instead

of imposing more sanctions.

Which haven't worked for over a decade,

let's loosen sanctions on telecommunications

infrastructure, computers, and cell phones.

Let's get the country wired up.

And then let's flood it with real truthful information

about that regime.

ERIK ROSALES: Meanwhile, Defense Secretary James Mattis

backed up UN Ambassador Nikki Haley's statements

by telling reporters Monday, "the United States

is ready to take care of the situation."

JAMES MATTIS: Ambassador Haley is correct.

There are many military options in concert with our allies

that we will take to defend our allies and our own interests.

ERIK ROSALES: Secretary Mattis said

there are possible military options that

would not create a grave risk to Seoul but didn't elaborate.

At 35 miles from the North Korean border,

Seoul lies well within artillery range.

Beyond other weapons, North Korea

is also believed to have a sizable chemical

and biological arsenal.

The secretary did explain why the US hasn't shot down

any North Korean missiles.

JAMES MATTIS: The bottom line is that when the missiles, were

they to be a threat, whether it be to US territory, Guam,

obviously Japan, Japan's territory,

that would elicit a different response from us.

Mattis wouldn't say any more about the military plans

but did confirm that he discussed with his South Korean

counterpart the idea of introducing nuclear weapons

to the Korean peninsula.

He would not confirm if that was one of the options

under consideration.

Erik Rosales, "CBN News," Washington.
