Todays' launch was nowhere near that capability, Flew only 45 minutes and

reached north of Japan.

"... it remains unclear whether the North has mastered all technologies needed to deliver a nuclear warhead to targets in the continental United States."

"In Tokyo on Friday, Japan’s chief cabinet secretary, Yoshihide Suga, said the latest North Korean missile flew for about 45 minutes before landing off Hokkaido, the northernmost Japanese island. The flight time suggests that the missile may have a range greater than any the North has tested previously."
"In the earlier test, the Hwasong-14 flew about 39 minutes and for a distance of 578 horizontal miles, but it was launched at a highly lofted angle, reaching an altitude of 1,740 miles. Had it been launched on a standard trajectory, it would have flown around 4,200 miles, missile experts said."
"In a report to the National Assembly earlier this month, the South Korean Defense Ministry said the Hwasong-14 could have a range of up to 4,970 miles, enough to hit Alaska and possibly Hawaii."
