President Trump "will take action" to protect against any threat from North Korea, according to National security adviser H.R. McMaster.

"[I]t's clear that the president is determined not to allow this kind of capability to threaten the United States," McMaster said on ABC's "This Week," adding, "And our president will take action that is in the best interest of the American people."

McMaster didn't offer any additional details, relaying that Trump doesn't like to announce what he is going to do before he does it.

Over the past few days, the President has tweeted about relations with North Korea, including one post that reads, "I have great confidence that China will properly deal with North Korea. If they are unable to do so, the U.S., with its allies, will! U.S.A."

McMaster also said that it should be clear to the North Korean regime that it's in their best interest to "stop the development of these missiles, and to denuclearize the peninsula."

He also called North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un "unpredictable."

McMaster further explained that right now they plan to rely on close allies as well as China, where their energy requirements and 80% of North Korea's trade comes.
