President Trump came out all guns blazing on Thursday, taking on the media for what he perceives to be their unfair treatment of him and his administration.
Touching upon North Korea, he said it's one of the crucial subjects facing the U.S. and that he will take care of it.
He made the remarks during a tirade about the leaks out of the White House that led to the resignation of Michael Flynn as national security adviser.
President Trump blasted the leaks of his phone conversations with world leaders to the press, calling it illegal and a criminal act.

"I don't have to tell you what I'm going to do in North Korea. And I don't have to tell you what I'm going to do with Iran. You know why? Because they shouldn't know."
Complaining about the flood of leaks dogging his administration, Trump said information printed in publications like the Washington Post and the New York Times could damage the U.S. response to big problems in the Middle East and North Korea.
Trump's reference to North Korea was only a part of a series of complaints he aired, arguing that his administration had "inherited a mess" at home and abroad.
He said many problems are spread across government and the economy, pointing to jobs leaving the country as well as low pay and low wages.
