Trump says his military options are on the table but can he really put them into action? The officials played down concerns and left open a range of possible reasons.
The U.N. Security Council on Thursday "strongly condemned" the most recent ballistic missile test by North Korea, blaming Pyongyang for "greatly increasing tension in the region and beyond".
North Korea has a long history of portraying mock violence against the United States in propaganda videos.
A slew of recent missile launches and North Korea's expected test of a sixth nuclear device have heightened concerns that the country is drawing closer to being capable of striking the US with a nuclear weapon - something sure to bring the crisis to a head.
Next week, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson will chair a minister-level meeting on the North Korean issue at the UN.
Trump, who met with President Xi Jinping earlier this month at his Mar-a-Lago retreat, said he told his Chinese counterpart that he would get a "much better" trade deal with the United States if he did something about the "menace" of North Korea.

The Rodong Sinmun, the official newspaper of the North's ruling Workers' Party, did not mince its words.
The Rodong Sinmun, the official newspaper of the North's communist party, said: "In the case of our super-mighty preemptive strike being launched, it will completely and immediately wipe out not only USA imperialists' invasion forces in South Korea and its surrounding areas but the United States mainland and reduce them to ashes".
Despite the belligerent rhetoric from Pyongyang, John Everard at CNN detects signs that President Trump's North Korea policy "might just be working", noting that a much-feared nuclear test during the weekend celebration of national founder Kim Il-sung's birthday did not occur, and the lone effort to test a missile ended with an embarrassing fizzle.
The Rodong Sinmun, the official newspaper of the North's ruling Workers' Party, did not mince its words in making Pyongyang's warning to Washington clear, saying North Korea was fully prepared for any US attack.
In January, North Korea had proposed to the Secretariat to convene an global forum to review the legal basis for the United Nations resolutions. North Korea routinely labels such exercises preparations for invasion.
The Pentagon has also dispatched the aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson strike group to the Korean Peninsula. "Through this exercise, I am sure we can deter war and remove our enemy's intention to provoke us".
Little hope is held for reviving the motion against North Korea - one diplomat said it was unlikely the Security Council would be able to resolve differences on the statement.
