>> President Donald Trump on Thursday telling Reuters in an interview, he's pressing for a diplomatic solution to the standoff with North Korea over its nuclear program, but saying a military confrontation can't be ruled out.>> There's a chance that we could end up having a major, major conflict with North Korea.
Absolutely. I would love to solve things diplomatically, but it's very difficult.>> But Trump issuing a stern warning to North Korean leader Kim Jong-un that any move against South Korea would come at a punishing price.>> Is he willing to destroy his country? And is he willing to destroy millions and millions of lives and people?
>> Trump talking to Reuters just as he finishes up his first 100 days in office with a handful of major accomplishments and notable defeats on immigration and healthcare. Jeff Mason interviewed Trump in the Oval Office.>> He seems to be very pleased with what they've done. He talked a little bit about his first 100 days.
He was a little wistful about his life before being President, he said he missed driving. But he's clearly also really in his element now, even though it's a much different life than he had before.>> This is more work than in my previous life, I thought it would be easier.
I like to work so that's not a problem, but this is actually more work.>> Trump also praising Chinese President Shi Xin Ping, saying he believes she can help defuse the situation in North Korea.>> He certainly doesn't want to see turmoil and death. He doesn't want to see it.
He's a good man.>> And after agreeing to renegotiation of the Nafta Treaty this week which he'd threatened to terminate, Trump declared the US trade deal with South Korea is quote unacceptable and announcing it would also be renegotiated or the US will be pulling out.>> It's a great deal for South Korea.
It's a terrible deal for us.>> Trump insists in his just released plan to sharply cut taxes will not lead to bigger US deficits because the lost tax revenue will be offset by savings from better trade deals. And getting other nations to pay for their own defense.
