Will Twitter suspend Trump's account for 'threatening nuclear war' against North Korea?

US President Donald Trump

They agreed that North Korea must stop its provocative and escalatory behaviour, the White House said.

French President Emmanuel Macron has called on all sides in the North Korean nuclear crisis to act responsibly "to prevent any escalation of tensions" after a days-long war of words between Washington and Pyongyang.

Xi Jinping, the leader of North Korea's key ally China, urged Trump on Saturday to avoid rhetoric that could inflame tensions, after the U.S. leader ramped up his warnings to Pyongyang, saying the Stalinist regime would "truly regret" taking hostile action against the United States.

Chinese President Xi Jinping appealed to both sides for calm amid fears the worsening war of words between North Korea and the U.S. could lead to a military conflict with catastrophic consequences for the region. The deployment of four Patriot interceptors was expected to be completed Saturday, a spokesman for Japan's Ministry of Defense said by phone. The influence of China in Pyongyang seems to be greatly reduced since Kim Jong Un became the North Korean leader in December 2011.

Actor Kal Penn has pointed out the president of the United States' posts fit the bill.

As the crisis has unfolded, Trump has alternated praising China for its help and chiding it for not doing more.

The arrivals of defender Victor Lindelof, midfielder Nemanja Matic and striker Romelu Lukaku have also improved the squad. We are going to see at the end of the season what happens, knowing how hard it is".

In a statement, the 39-year-old voiced his "concern at the ballistic and nuclear threat coming from North Korea", saying world leaders needed to work to get Pyongyang to "resume the path of dialogue without conditions".

Donald Trump again invoked the grim possibility of military measures if other steps fail.

It continued, "If the Trump administration does not want the American empire to meet its tragic doom in its tenure, they had better talk and act properly".

Chinese state media say President Xi Jinping, in a call with President Donald Trump, said all sides should avoid rhetoric or action that would worsen tensions on the Korean Peninsula.

Trump also reiterated their mutual commitment to denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula, it added.

"What Trump did is try to rip apart that diplomatic track by trying to immediately wave his own missiles against those of North Korea".
