Trump's mouth (and twitter account) keeps writing checks that his own government and allies don't want to cash. Trump's mindset is ready, fire, aim.. which is a very bad trait for the POTUS.
When I served in the Army in SK, during a trip to the DMZ, I remember seeing ridiculously tall flags in the one room that crosses the border of both countries, where meetings between the nations could be held. Just those little flags you'd put on a table to represent your country.. but the SK had something like 6 tiers.. and then NK flag had 7. They used to have 1. But NK added a tier. So SK did. So NK added another. And so on.
That regime of family-dictators don't like to be one-upped.. outdone. So what does Trump do? He keeps purposely raising the ante. Just leave them the hell alone.. don't respond to their childish taunts.. keep up the sanctions.. let the loss of cash hurt their nation and their nuclear program. If a child tries to bully you, an adult.. do you engage them? No.. you punish them.. and ignore their childish taunts. You don't stoop to their level and try to outdo them. Which is exactly what Trump is doing.

John McCain says that Trump is BLUFFING, about striking North Korea. Why would he say that, considering that President Trump has participated in two military strikes, in just his first 6 months in office?
