    President Donald Trump warned on Thursday that the U.S. could be headed toward a "major, major conflict" with North Korea over the country's nuclear and missile programs, NBC News reported.

    The president said so in an interview with Reuters, adding, "We'd love to solve things diplomatically, but it's very difficult."

    Trump also said he hoped the North's 33-year-old leader, Kim Jong-Un, is "rational." The president said taking over a regime at a young age is "a very hard thing to do."

    The interview comes just hours after a North Korean propaganda outlet released a video simulating an attack on America, with targets superimposed on the White House and American aircraft carriers.
