The Trump Administration says they’re exploring every possible option in response to the latest act of aggression from North Korea.
On Monday night, the rogue nation launched a missile that flew through Japanese airspace before falling into the shores near the island of Hokkaido. The Pentagon confirmed the launch quickly after it happened, and the White House has released a statement from President Donald Trump saying “all options are on the table.”

In recent months, tensions have kept growing between North Korea and the United States. Kim Jong Un‘s regime has defied international calls to halt their weapons testing, and President Trump said America will rain “fire and fury” against North Korea if they continue with their provocations.
Reports indicate that Trump is in contact with Japanese PM Shinzo Abe, and there will be an emergency UN security meeting to address the incident.
