Talking to 'Little Rocket Man' Is a 'Waste of Time'

"And we look forward to advancing that relationship at the upcoming summit", Tillerson said, referring to Trump's first state visit to Beijing expected in November.
U.S. President Donald Trump said on Sunday that he told the top U.S. diplomat not to waste his time trying to negotiate with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
Asked how he could know whether the North would even contemplate coming to the table, Tillerson told reporters: "We are probing, so stay tuned".
The North Korean military enlistment claims came after Kim issued a statement Friday warning: "I will surely and definitely tame the mentally deranged US dotard with fire".
Trump tweets this advice to Secretary of State Rex Tillerson: "Save your energy, Rex, we'll do what has to be done!"
"I think the most immediate action that we need is to calm things down", Tillerson said.
Fears of a conflict in the region reached boiling point recently after President Trump warned he would "totally destroy" Kim's regime.
Trump has previously kept the door open to possible talks with North Korea.
That has traditionally been a way for the two sides to communicate, because they lack formal diplomatic ties. "The whole situation is a bit overheated right now", he said.
"I think Tillerson understands that every intelligence agency we have says there's no amount of economic pressure you can put on North Korea to get them to stop this program because they view this as their survival", Corker said.
Other than North Korea, the US and China have other security concerns to address.
The US wants North Korea to halt its weapons programme, which has seen it perform repeated missile tests, as well as claim to have successfully tested a miniaturised hydrogen bomb which could be loaded on to a long-range missile.
Some commentators seized on Trump's tweets as evidence that he was either undermining Tillerson personally or his diplomacy, or both.
And then Trump weighed in the next day with tweets that included his usual personal dig at Kim.
Tillerson, facing criticism at home for his muted impact as the top US diplomat, may also be seeking to put his own stamp on the relationship.
