Just a reminder

Nation, April 2017 - Nation“President Trump, Vice President Pence, and Ambassador Haley have explicitly, and repeatedly, threatened military attacks by the United States on North Korea if North Korea engages in any nuclear or missile tests,” says Congressman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY). “The President should remember that, in the absence of an imminent threat of a North Korean attack on the United States or on US forces, he has zero legal authority to order military action without prior Congressional authorization,” says the veteran congressman. “Any such order would clearly and unequivocally be illegal and unconstitutional.”

I think how it works is the joint chiefs figure well in advance and pick their moment. If they haven't planned a war with North Korea and placed it as a priority for this year, it wont happen. Presidents have almost no say, like when last year in Syria the joint chiefs decided to break Obama's truce.
