Trump officials privately bracing for North Korea's next move

The Trump administration is privately discussing how to respond should North Korea decide to conduct a satellite launch as talks between Washington and Pyongyang appear to be at another impasse, CNN has learned.

Rhetoric between the two countries has become more heated and provocative in recent weeks following President Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un's no-deal summit in Hanoi but a North Korean satellite launch would pose a new, high-stakes dilemma for the administration.

Such a launch by the North Koreans would force Trump to make a touch choice: Take a hard line against Pyongyang knowing it could jeopardize already fragile negotiations or implement a more nuanced approach in hopes of preserving the possibility of a diplomatic resolution.
