Trump Pressing Asian Leaders to Take Action Against North Korea

Posted: Updated:
Washington, DC -

The Trump administration continues to press leaders in Asia for more action against North Korea, just days after the U.N. enacted its strongest sanctions yet against Pyongyang.

The North Korean state-run news agency announced its recent missile launches as a "stern warning" to the U.S. and warned Americans shouldn't feel safe.

Many Americans don't.72% tell CBS News they are uneasy about a possible conflict with North Korea.

The Trump administration is hopeful that new UN economic sanctions will help resolve the situation.

President Trump has Secretary of State Rex Tillerson talking with partners in Asia to help enforce the sanctions, hoping the loss of money will curb the communist country's nuclear ambitions.

President Trump praised the sanctions on Twitter this morning saying, "after many years of failure, countries are coming together to finally address the dangers posed by North Korea. We must be tough & decisive!" 

However, he has more work to do to convince the American people. 35% of those surveyed by CBS News say they are confident in the president's ability to handle the North Korean situation.

President Trump received much higher marks for his handling of the economy with 46% saying he's doing a good job.  Overall,69% of those surveyed say they feel good about the economy.  That's the highest number for that metric in 15 years.
