In CBS' Face The Nation, Trump did, however, say that he would not be "very happy" if Pyongyang moved ahead with another nuclear test.

Trump's comments come after North Korea carried out a test-launch of what USA officials said was a short-range ballistic missile, a test banned under United Nations sanctions. US President Donald Trump offered some backhanded praise for North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, calling him "a pretty smart cookie" in a television interview that aired yesterday. "He's dealing with obviously very tough people", Trump said.

Speaking about how the USA plans to work with China, Mr Trump added: "I happen to think that China does have reasonably good powers over North Korea".

With regards to Trump's comment that he "didn't say 'don't test the missile, '" that's not exactly true, especially in the context of how Dickerson phrased the question.

Argentina continued in second place, while World Cup victor Germany stayed in third, followed by Chile in fourth. The Indian football team made it into the top 100 of the FIFA World Rankings for the first time in 21 years.

Speaking on Fox News Sunday, Mr McMaster said it was important "for all of us to confront this regime, this regime that is pursuing the weaponisation of a missile with a nuclear weapon".

North Korea said in an official statement that the United States "will soon clearly know what real war tastes like".

On Saturday, a North Korean mid-range ballistic missile apparently failed shortly after launch, the third test-fire flop this month but a clear message of defiance.

North Korea has kept the West on edge for weeks over signs it may conduct a sixth nuclear test, punctuated by a series of missile tests that have aroused USA fears that the regime may be close to developing a ballistic missile capable of hitting the USA mainland with a nuclear warhead.

"I'd rather not discuss it, " he said.

US trade deficit narrows in March
Trade figures also carry political implications as President Donald Trump seeks to revamp USA trade deals with other countries. Imports fell 0.7 percent $234.7 billion as imports of crude oil and other petroleum products slid.

He added: "Perhaps they're just not very good missiles. But eventually, he'll have good missiles". But we'll see what happens.

"So, obviously, he's a pretty smart cookie", he said.

"People are saying, 'Is he sane?' I have no idea. but he was a young man of 26 or 27. when his father died". I just don't want people to know what my thinking is, ' Trump said.

'It may mean ratcheting up those sanctions even further and it also means being prepared for military operations if necessary, ' McMaster said.

"Just in the past two weeks, the world witnessed the strength and resolve of our new president in actions taken in Syria and Afghanistan", he said.

When discussing North Korea, Trump said Pyongyang can't be allowed to possess more capable ballistic missiles, with the regime continuing its push to acquire a nuclear-tipped ICBM that can hit the USA mainland.
