A day after lawmakers were briefed on threats from North Korea, a top military leader says all options are on the table for dealing with Pyonyang.

FOX's Rachel Sutherland reports from Washington:

It's not a matter of if North Korea gets nuclear weapons, but when. That from U.S. Navy Admiral Harry Harris, who told the Senate Armed Services Committee that North Korea is not yet an existential threat, but warned:

(Harris) "We are faced with a threat and a leader who is intent on achieving his goal of nuclear capability against the United States."

President Trump been asking China for help. Admiral Harris said he wouldn't bet the farm that Beijing will be able to get North Korea under control.
