BEDMINSTER, N.J. (Reuters) - President Donald Trump on Thursday escalated his rhetoric on North Korea, saying his "fire and fury" comment might not be "tough enough."

"Maybe that statement wasn't tough enough," Trump told reporters as he prepared to meet with top national security advisers. "If anything, that statement may not be tough enough."
