Calling Trump "mentally deranged" and his comments "the most ferocious declaration of a war in history", Kim said his United Nations speech on Tuesday confirmed Pyongyang's nuclear programme has been "the correct path".
"Once we can assess the nature of this threat, the president will make a decision regarding the appropriate actions", Tillerson said, adding that Trump would receive advice from the National Security Council and others but that, "ultimately, it will be his decision".
"Action is the best option in treating the dotard who, hard of hearing, is uttering only what he wants to say", Kim said. "I will make the man holding the prerogative of the supreme command in the USA pay dearly for his speech", Kim said.
The North Korean strongman rounded off his speech by warning to tame "the mentally deranged U.S. dotard with fire".
Kim's statement came after Trump issued a new Executive Order that expands US sanctions on North Korea and companies or individuals that are involved in business with the nation, indulge in creating tension with nuclear and ballistic missile test.
Pyongyang says it will not give up on its nuclear deterrence unless Washington ends its hostile policy toward the country and dissolves the US-led United Nations command in South Korea.
Trump announced new secondary sanctions on entities and individuals doing business with North Korea on Thursday.
A N.Korea nuclear test over the Pacific? Logical, terrifying
In two July flight tests, those missiles displayed the potential ability to reach deep into continental United States. China's natural disaster administration has said it suspects an "explosion" caused the quake in the rogue state.
He also saluted China's central bank for what he said was a move to stop its banks from trading with North Korea.
"Moscow still calls on all interested parties to display restraint so as not to provoke this escalation even further", Peskov said, reiterating Russia's position that the problem surrounding the North's nuclear programme should be settled through negotiations only. The sanctions prohibit all natural gas sales to the North, and limit the amount of refined and crude oil sales.
James Petras, who has written dozens of books on global issues, made the comments in an interview with Press TV on Friday while commenting on US President Donald Trump's recent inflammatory statements about North Korea.
Lavrov on Friday again pushed a proposal by Moscow and Beijing for a dual suspension of North Korean weapons tests and the U.S.
How might the US respond, given its treaty commitment to defend Japan?
Stephen Colbert thinks President Donald Trump "isn't fit to sit in a White Castle, let alone a White House" - but that doesn't mean North Korean leader Kim Jong-un can gang up on him.
He described the president as "a rogue and a gangster fond of playing with fire", and characterised Mr Trump's speech to the world body on Tuesday as "mentally deranged behaviour". "And we are engaging with North Korea's most important supporters, economic supporters - their friends, China and Russian Federation to have them engage with Kim Jong Un on this issue", Tillerson said.
However, the North never stopped its nuclear program, and instead has developed nuclear weapons-including a miniaturized nuclear warhead, according to an analysis by the Defense Intelligence Agency-and the missile technology needed to deliver it. In recent months, it has also launched a pair of still-developmental ICBMs it said were capable of striking the continental United States and two intermediate-range missiles that soared over Japanese territory.
