President Trump meets with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson Monday as the administration considers what to do about North Korea.

Vice President Pence visited the "DMZ", the border between North and South Korea, making it clear that nothing's been ruled out while responding to North Korea's failed missile test.

"All options are on the table as we continue to stand shoulder to shoulder with the people of South Korea," said Vice President Mike Pence

Despite moving a strike team in place, military action does not appear to be the trump administration's first choice.

"it's time for us to undertake all actions we can, short of a military option, to try to resolve this peacefully," said National Security Advisor General H.R. McMaster

Any push to get North Korea to back down is almost sure to involve China which is North Korea's only ally and largest trading partner in the region.

"Whether they're currency manipulators or not, we should expect them to act to prevent what could be a cataclysmic event," said Senator John McCain, (R) Arizona.

"So, if China can be brought to the point where they are putting pressure constantly on North Korea, there's an opportunity, I think, to try to freeze their systems and then roll them back," said Senator Jack Reed, (D) Rhode Island.

Lawmakers say President Trump needs a plan. So far, he's been silent on the missile test.

    Another land swap is on the agenda for Colorado Springs City Council. Under the deal, the City would trade parcels with developer David Jenkins for land located just west of the train tracks near America the Beautiful Park. Swapping the land would allow C-DOT to put in a better design for new storm water infrastructure that is building as part of the I-25 Cimarron Interchange project.
