ABCNews.com(WASHINGTON) — President Donald Trump took to Twitter on Saturday to say “only one thing will work” with North Korea, two days after he suggested to reporters they were seeing “the calm before the storm.”

The president tweeted that “presidents and their administrations have been talking to North Korea for 25 years” and it “hasn’t worked.”

“Agreements violated before the ink was dry, making fools of U.S. negotiators,” he tweeted in part. “Sorry, but only one thing will work!”

Trump did not clarify what “one thing” he was talking about, but his tweets have suggested the prospect of military confrontation with North Korea.

The two tweets come after Trump delivered cryptic comments on Thursday while taking photos alongside top military leaders.

“You guys know what this represents? The calm before the storm.” he said at the photo-op.

When asked by reporters what storm he was referring to, the president said, “You’ll find out.”

Last Sunday, Trump seemed to undercut Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and the U.S. State Department as both have said diplomatic options remain open with North Korea.

“I told Rex Tillerson, our wonderful Secretary of State, that he is wasting his time trying to negotiate with Little Rocket Man…,” he tweeted.

“…Save your energy Rex, we’ll do what has to be done!”
