「Remarks by President Trump Before Workforce/Apprenticeship Discussion | whitehouse.gov」
Q Mr. President, what did you mean by military solutions are locked and loaded as it relates to North Korea?

THE PRESIDENT: Well, I think its pretty obvious. We are looking at that very carefully, and I hope that they are going to fully understand the gravity of what I said. And what I said is what I mean. So hopefully theyll understand, Peter, exactly what I said and the meaning of those words. Those words are very, very easy to understand.

Q Any progress on the diplomatic backchannel?
THE PRESIDENT: Well, we dont want to talk about progress, we dont want to talk about backchannels. We want to talk about a country that has misbehaved for many, many years -- decades, actually -- through numerous administrations. And they didnt want to take on the issue, and I have no choice but to take it on, and Im taking it on. And well either be very, very successful quickly or were going to be very, very successful in a different way, quickly.

Q Angela Merkel says she sees no military solution to a fight with North Korea. Why is she wrong?

THE PRESIDENT: Well, I think maybe shes speaking for Germany. Let her speak for Germany. Shes a friend of mine, shes a very good person, a very good woman. Shes a friend of Ivanka. Perhaps shes referring to Germany. Shes certainly not referring to the United States, that I can tell you.

Q Mr. President, youve said you want to send a strong message to North Korea. What do you say to your critics who say that your rhetoric is actually raising the tension?

THE PRESIDENT: Well, you know, my critics are only saying that because its me. If somebody else uttered the exact same words that I uttered, theyd say, What a great statement, what a wonderful statement. Theyre only doing it -- but I will tell you, we have tens of millions of people in this country that are so happy with what Im saying -- because theyre saying, finally we have a President thats sticking up for our nation and, frankly, sticking up for our friends and our allies.

And this man will not get away with what hes doing, believe me. And if he utters one threat, in the form of an overt threat -- which, by the way, he has been uttering for years, and his family has been uttering for years -- or if he does anything with respect to Guam, or anyplace else thats an American territory or an American ally, he will truly regret it and he will regret it fast.

Thank you all very much. Thank you. Thank you very much.
