Trump says military action against North Korea not ‘first choice’

US President Donald Trump says military action against North Korea is not the “first choice” of his administration, edging away from his harshest threats against the regime in Pyongyang.

After a phone call with Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping on how to deal with North Korea’s threatening nuclear and ballistic missile programs, Trump did not rule out military strikes, saying “we will see what happens.”

But, he indicated, other avenues for pressure would come first.
