Exactly one year since then President-elect Donald Trump vowed North Korea would never test a missile capable of hitting the U.S., military officials told NBC News on Tuesday that North Korea's first ballistic missile launch of 2018 could occur in a matter of days, with one official describing the timeline as "short-term."

"... [We] hear reports that North Korea might be preparing for another missile test," U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley told reporters at the U.N. in New York, according to Reuters.
