President Trump addresses the nation following the US launching a military strike on a Syrian government target on April 6, 2017 in retaliation for their chemical weapons attack on civilians earlier in the week.

Trump, spending a long weekend at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida, had remained silent and largely stayed out of sight Saturday while North Korea staged a huge parade in Pyongyang to showcase its military prowess and later launched a ballistic missile that exploded with seconds.

On Saturday, thousands of protestors in a dozen US cities took to the streets to protest Trump's decision not to release his tax returns.

Trump issued a warning on Twitter on April 13, saying the United States will deal with North Korea if China doesn't. Those administrations calculated that cooperation on other issues, including North Korea, was more helpful to worldwide stability than a fight over trade terms.
