WASHINGTON (AP) -

President Donald Trump says if the U.S. takes a military option in dealing with the threat from North Korea "it will be devastating."
  
Trump says that "we are totally prepared" for a military option, but it's not the preferred one. He says: "If we have to take it, we will."
  
Trump spoke at a White House news conference Tuesday. He was asked about comments from North Korea's foreign minister, who on Monday said that Trump's recent threatening statements toward the North were a declaration of war and it would have the right to shoot down U.S. warplanes.
  
Trump said the North Korean leader was behaving "very badly."
  
Trump blamed previous U.S. presidents for failing to deal with the North Korean threat. He declared: "I will fix this mess."
