President Trump addressed South Korea's National Assembly on Tuesday night, saying he was prepared to offer Kim Jong-un's regime "a path to a far better future," but only if the regime gives up its nuclear ambitions. He addressed Kim directly, saying:

"Today, I hope I speak not only for our countries, but for all civilized nations, when I say: Do not underestimate us. And do not try us."
