Speaking at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland, Trump says he's more confident than ever, after seeing the military hardware on base, that US options for addressing the threat from North Korea "are both effective and overwhelming".

"We crave adventure and achievement, exploration and enlightenment", Trump said of Americans and their military. "This includes the regime of North Korea, which has one again shown its utter contempt for its neighbors, and the entire world community".

Trump reiterated a statement made earlier in the day by U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley about American responses to North Korea, saying the US has an "overwhelming" number of military options - some of which he said he'd seen before the speech.

"What we are seeing is they continue to be provocative, they continue to be reckless".

"Thank you for your service and devotion", Trump said.

At the time, multiple other White House officials looked to refute Bannon's view. First lady Melania Trump remained in Washington. "We will be there tomorrow and the day after, as we work to respond, recover, and rebuild".

Trump's remarks came after North Korea fired a ballistic missile over the northern Japanese island of Hokkaido earlier on Friday, the latest in a stream of missile tests that have looked to defy the worldwide community.
