Trump went on to criticize Democratic administrations.
"The world is a hair's breadth from nuclear war", said Kiselyov, according to Reuters.
On April 14, USA media said that Trump might order a strike against North Korea in the event Pyongyang made a decision to carry out another nuclear weapon test.
"Both are risky, but who is more unsafe?"
When asked by a reporter what kind of message he had for Kim Jong-un, Trump simply said Monday at the White House that the North Korean leader has "gotta behave", without elaborating.

The Kremlin realizes however, those same officials say, that the process will be harder and take longer than originally thought and the result is likely to be more limited in scope.
Trump recalled former President Bill Clinton and former President Barack Obama's efforts to deal with the North, pointing out that they've "all been outplayed" by Kim dynasty.
"I really hope that the kind of unilateral action we recently saw in Syria won't happen (in North Korea) and that the United States of America will follow the line which President Trump repeatedly set out during his pre-election campaign", said Lavrov.
