North Korea brings missile threat to the US: What does Trump do now?

Adam Mount, senior fellow at the Center for American Progress, said US President Donald Trump had few good options to respond to North Korea.
"It`s a major threshold .
a really difficult question will be whether Donald Trump feels like he`s (been) backed into a corner and doesn`t have options short of war," he said.
"I think what we`ll have to grapple with in Washington is that none of our tactics or our levers mean the same thing anymore," Mount added.
On Tuesday, North Korea announced on state television it had successfully tested an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) for the first time -- something which has long been seen as a red line in already fraught bilateral relations.
Euan Graham, director of the International Security Program at Sydney`s Lowy Institute described the development as a foreign policy failure for the United States, going as far back as the Clinton administration.
"It`s a failure that goes beyond any one (US) administration," he said.
"An ICBM actually takes the threat (of North Korea) right to the US homeland .
that`s the dangerous dynamic that will be a driver for how the US responds," Graham said.
North Korea has repeatedly in the past threatened to attack the United States with a nuclear weapon, which the regime claims it has technical capability to do.

Then President-elect, Donald Trump responded on Twitter, saying North Korea would not be allowed to create a nuclear weapon capable of hitting the US.
"North Korea just started that it is in the final stages of developing a nuclear weapon capable of reaching parts of the US.
It won`t happen!" he said at the time.
"The US failed to prevent the North Koreans from reprocessing their nuclear material, they failed to prevent them from testing nuclear missiles and now we`re at the threshold where the North Koreans has not just a basic missile but seven different types and all surprisingly sophisticated," said Graham.
Learning to live with a nuclear-armed North Korea? Experts say there are no good options for the Trump administration to deal with a heavily-armed North Korea.
"You can`t try to stop North Korea crossing a threshold -- it`s already crossed (it).
What are the sanctions for? What do we get out of pressuring China or North Korea? I think we need to step back and rethink," Mount said.
