"He has disrespected our country greatly", Trump said of Kim Thursday. Trump then told reporters on Thursday that his previous threats may not have been "tough enough".

"Frankly, the people who were questioning that statement, was it too tough?"

"If the USA and South Korea carry out strikes and try to overthrow the North Korean regime and change the political pattern of the Korean Peninsula, China will prevent them from doing so", it said.

Trump's comments followed a North Korean claim over state television that it was preparing to fire four missiles towards the U.S. strategic island Guam.
