Trump escalates threat to North Korea

U-S President Donald Trump issued a new threat to North Korea, demanding that Kim Jong Un's government -- quote -- ``get their act together'' or face extraordinary trouble.

Speaking to reporters at his golf club in New Jersey, Trump said North Korea has been getting away with a tragedy that can't be allowed to continue.

And he said his previous warning of ``fire and fury'' if Pyongyang threatened the U-S again might have been too soft.

Trump declined to say whether the U-S is considering a pre-emptive military strike, arguing that his administration never discusses such deliberations publicly.
