President Trump’s National Security Advisor, H.R. McMaster, said early Sunday that “we all need to take care of it” when asked about the strategy to the conflict with North Korea, according to Fox News.
Earlier this week, North Korea launched another ICBM that the nation claims could reach any given city within the United State. Trump responded to the test by saying that “we will take care of it.”
“Well, the president’s going to take care of it by, if we have to, doing more ourselves,” McMaster said of the president’s comments. “But what we want to do is convince others it is in their interest to do more.

“China, as you know, has taken some unprecedented actions. And what we’re asking China to do is, not do us or anybody else a favor, but to act in China’s interest.
“There’s a real grave danger to China, to Russia, to all nations, by — you know, from a North Korea that’s armed with nuclear weapons. And of course, you have that direct threat, but you also have the threat of — the potential of Japan, South Korea, others, arming themselves, possibly even with nuclear weapons. That is not in China’s interest; it’s not in Russia’s interest.
“And so, what the president’s saying is, we all need to take care of it. If necessary, the president and the United States will have to take care of it, because he has said he’s not going to allow this murderous, rogue regime to threaten the United States with the most destructive weapons on the planet.”
McMaster also spoke about the president’s strategy in the Middle East and clarified that he’s heard no such news that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson will be replaced.
