Congress Considers US Options When Dealing With North Korea

Donald Trump and Xi Jinping speak by phone amid US-North Korea tension

Jimmy Kimmel addressed the North Korea threat, too, as well as the fear incited by the president's aggressive rhetoric in response.

Thursday on "CNN Tonight", network host Fareed Zakaria said President Donald Trump's "fire and fury" rhetoric on North Korea was the "the art of the bluff".

Trump and supreme leader Kim Jong-un have traded remarks regarding recent aggression on the part of North Korea - including a threat to strike US bases in Guam.

President Donald Trump may roll out a long-expected initiative to investigate China's trade practices on Monday, with emphasis on alleged intellectual property theft, two administration sources told NBC News.

"I believe it's important that the current language be scaled down, and that the current threat be weakened".

"President Trump this afternoon addressed the North Korean missile program and said if they continue to threaten the United States, they will be met with "fire and fury like the world has never seen"," Meyers continued. And the evidence for that is Trump's talking big with this guy and it's just further stoking this guy, he's threatening this guy, he's challenging this guy.

'Let's See' What N. Korea Does With Guam
We're with you 1,000%. "If caught outside, do not look at the flash or fireball - It can blind you". Governor said the people of Guam feel safe.

Jeffrey A. Bader at the Brookings Institute argues that "deterring and containing North Korea is our least bad option".

Despite outrage in the US with Mr Warmbier's treatment and sharp condemnation by President Trump, the US-North Korean interactions in NY continued. The semantics appear to be rhetorical, since USA nuclear experts have called Trump's claims of a more powerful nuclear program "baseless" and "absurd". Control of Guam was then under the authority of the U.S. Navy.

The contacts are occurring regularly between Joseph Yun, the United States envoy for North Korea policy, and Pak Song Il, a senior North Korean diplomat at the country's UN mission, according to USA officials and others briefed on the process.

Or specifically, North Korea's statement that it only held a grudge against the USA, and not to any other country. "Maybe it wasn't tough enough", Trump told reporters at his New Jersey golf club. But you're saying your concern is that the Trump administration may misinterpret something North Korea says or does and wage a pre-emptive strike. "I hope he will listen to them, and I hope their cooler heads will prevail". Oh, and he took some time off the greens today to bring the world to the brink of nuclear war with North Korea.

Neither the White House nor the State Department commented on Yun's communication channel, and a diplomat at North Korea's United Nations mission confirmed to the AP only that the channel had been used to negotiate Warmbier's release. Pyongyang this week threatened to fire missiles near the US territory of Guam during an exchange of bellicose rhetoric with Trump. -South Korean military exercises-which are set to resume this month-and an eventual peace treaty with Washington.
