Gorka: Tillerson Comments Taken Out of Context

"It is the job of Secretary [James] Mattis as secretary of Defense to talk about military options, and he has done so unequivocally".

Sebastian Gorka, deputy-assistant to President Donald Trump (2nd L), participates in a discussion during the Conservative Political Action Conference at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in National Harbor, Maryland, on February 24.

Tillerson said that Trump was speaking in threatening language that North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un "would understand" because diplomacy hasn't worked so far and that "Americans should sleep well at night" without worry of a military confrontation.

Democrats in Congress, led by Rep. John Conyers Jr., sent a letter to Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Wednesday warning the administration that it would need congressional approval for any preemptive attack on North Korea.

Tillerson also said Americans "should sleep well at night" when asked by reporters if people should be anxious about the looming nuclear threat from North Korea - striking a starkly different tone from Trump's earlier comments. Gorka seems to be saying it's right back to where Trump suggested it was - or at least that Trump reserved the right to consider mere threats to be acts of war.

5 things to watch in Browns preseason opener
Playing the entire second half, he completed 11 of 18 attempts for 184 yards with one TD, the 45-yarder to Jordan Payton . He's expected to play at some point in the preseason as is Peterson, who stayed close to his QB during the first half.

According to Gorka, Tillerson had no right to say such a thing and instead refused to rule out full-blown war.

It also came as Mattis and Tillerson struck different public notes on North Korea, something that might simply be reflective of their different roles in the government.

That letter also asked about steps to address humanitarian issues such as the reunification of Korean families separated by the armistice that concluded the Korean War, and the return of remains of US service members left in North Korea after the war. Meanwhile, North Korea's whole shtick is being dismissive of everything the United States does, so it makes sense that Trump's go-to reaction is to lash out with loud and blusterous threats of violence.

"I was admonishing the journalists of the fake news industrial complex who are forcing our chief diplomat into a position where they are demanding he makes the military case for action when that is not the mandate of the secretary of State".

"I said for reporters to force our chief diplomat, the fantastic Rex Tillerson, to give details of military options is nonsensical". "That's why we have a Department of Defense". This morning, and let me just back up here for our viewers who might not know, I believe this morning you gave an interview to BBC Radio during which you said that "it was nonsensical for Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to discuss military matters" and that he was "out of line".
