No, and while there are many arguments to make, the first one is the most important.

Mutually Assured Destruction.

There is a reason the USA nor the USSR try to attack each other with nuclear weapons during the cold war. The moment a nuclear missile is launched at either of these countries, the other will launch another back. This would immediately lead to nuclear war, and a death count in the high millions.

Another reason the USA shouldn't nuke North Korea is because of China. China has said very loudly and very clearly, that being an ally of North Korea, they will help defend it if it is attacked. They will not however defend it if it is the instigator. An assault on North Korea by the USA would lead to a war between 2 of the most powerful super-powers in the world, leading to another world war, this time with nuclear weapons. Chances are, you wouldn't live to see the end of it. A large majority of humanity would perish, if not all of it.

This is all without considering the border between North Korea and South Korea, and also the Chinese North Korean border. Dropping a nuke here will make the entire area inhabitable meaning nobody will be able to live, or even go to these locations. All natural resources available here won't be usable to anybody. By dropping a nuke here, you are effectively removing everything it can possibly contribute to the entire world stages.

Of course, another problem with dropping a nuke on the country is the immediate backlash. This is an extreme move and many other countries will see it this way, China obviously being one of the biggest threats. Other countries nearby might also start panicking, and begin another nuclear race in order to arm and protect themselves if something along these lines might happen to them as well.

So no, I don't think we should let Donald Trump, nay, any president drop a nuke on any country. Nuclear weapons should all be disarmed for the good of humanity.
