Trump touts USA nuclear arsenal amid standoff with North Korea

Trump touts USA nuclear arsenal amid standoff with North Korea

"Don't believe the Fake News Suppression Polls!"

After noting President George W. Bush was also not successful, Trump said "Obama didn't even want to talk about it".

Trump also warned if Kim followed through on plans to strike Guam, the US response "will be an event the likes of which nobody's seen before".

'If the USA and South Korea carry out strikes and try to overthrow the North Korean regime, and change the political pattern of the Korean Peninsula, China will prevent them from doing so, ' reported the Global Times, a daily Chinese newspaper controlled by the Communist Party.

The rhetoric from the president - promising "fire and fury" if North Korea continues to threaten the United States - has spurred one outspoken critic of Trump in New Hampshire to push for his removal.

Following new reports on North Korea's rapid development of intercontinental ballistic missiles, which analysts say now include a miniature nuclear warhead, President Donald Trump said on Tuesday that Pyongyang has reason to stop any further nuclear posturing.

"We need to be firm and deliberate with North Korea, but reckless rhetoric is not a strategy to keep America safe", Mr Schumer said in a statement.

Mets' deGrom hit on right arm in 10-0 rout of Phillies
Nola has been probably the best arm in the Phillies' rotation, and has given up two runs or less in each of his last nine starts. He went 0-for-2 with a walk in his Phillies debut, a 10-0 loss to the Mets in the opener of the four-game series.

North Korea has made no secret of its plans to develop a nuclear-tipped missile able to strike the United States and has ignored all calls to halt its weapons programmes.

A Republican who's a leading voice on defense issues says President Donald Trump has "basically drawn a red line" with his strong warning on North Korea.

Japan and South Korea vowed a strong reaction if the North were to go through with the plan.

North Korea, which is pursuing missile and nuclear weapons programmes in defiance of UN Security Council resolutions, also accused the USA of devising a "preventive war" and said in another statement that any plans to execute this would be met with an "all-out war, wiping out all the strongholds of enemies, including the USA mainland". Gorka said that Tillerson wasn't qualified to make that comment.

The tweet came as Trump traded escalating threats with North Korea. "Nobody in the world, especially not North Korea, comes close to challenging our military capabilities".

The letter by the Detroit Democrat was signed by 60 members of the U.S. House, including Rep. Brenda Lawrence, D-Southfield, urging direct negotiations between North Korea and the United States.
