In Washington on Monday, Trump said "the status quo in North Korea is also unacceptable", and he called on the Security Council to impose new sanctions.
In a statement released late Friday, North Korea's Foreign Ministry accused Trump of driving the region into an "extremely risky phase" with the dispatch of the aircraft carrier and said the North was ready to stand up against any threat posed by the United States.
USA ambassador to the United Nations has also warned North Korea saying U.S. will strike North if it attacks a US military base or tests an intercontinental ballistic missile.
Trump took the UNSC ambassadors to task for escalating costs compared to what he sees as a lack of progress at solving the world's problems, similar to pressure he has put on the United States' NATO allies.
Under Kim's leadership, North Korea has been aggressively pursuing a decades-long goal of putting a nuclear warhead on an ICBM capable of reaching the US mainland.

"The South Korean and USA militaries are fully ready for North Korea's nuclear test", Moon said.

Trump also spoke about "the urgent security challenge posed by North Korea" during phone calls with Chinese President Xi Jinping on Sunday and with German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Monday, the White House said.
During the call, the leaders pledged to strengthen their coordination on denuclearizing North Korea, the White House said. However, US officials have told The Associated Press that the military response isn't likely.
"We will continue to closely cooperate and maintain the high level of warning and surveillance".
The statement came just hours after a North Korean newspaper said Pyongyang was ready to take out a U.S. aircraft carrier conducting drills with Japanese destroyers near the Philippines. She praised China's increased pressure on North Korea.
Kim, whose Korean name is Kim Sang-duk, was taken into custody Saturday at Pyongyang International Airport as he was trying to leave the country.
South Korean media have cited research by a USA foundation in 2013 suggesting that a war on the Korean Peninsula could cause combined military and civilian casualties on a par with World War I.

Among those conditions, though, China's North Korea policy shows tangible signs of change.
