US State Dept. Updates North Korea Travel Warning Ahead of Tourist Ban

11 August, 2017, 11:07 | Author: Laverne Higgins

Naturally, this flies in the face of comments that his own chaotic administration has made, with Secretary Of State Rex Tillerson recently suggesting that Americans "should sleep well" because diplomatic sanctions on North Korea will ultimately be the most effective way to stop the escalating tensions.

"Look North Korea, leave Guam out of this!" he exclaimed. "We either do nothing, go to war or negotiate a stand down, and so far we've seen no sign that they're willing to negotiate".

Senator Dan Sullivan calls the recent United Nations resolution to isolate North Korea a victory for the Trump administration, but he also warned them against a "blustery" response.

"They all come with significant risks".

The reclusive state raised the stakes further with a detailed plan to send a salvo of missiles towards the USA territory of Guam. President Donald Trump warned North Korea that it would face " fire and fury " if it threatened the United States .


Rubio's defense of the President's comments is at odds with the opinions of some of his colleagues in the Senate - including Republicans - who criticized Trump for the harsh rhetoric. "And I hope the president, which he is not now, is very careful about what his language is, and what he threatens", McCain said. "I think the problem is there is a lunatic in North Korea with nuclear weapons and the ability to put them on a missile that can reach the United States ..." Trump added that he hopes to increase the USA military budget "by many billions of dollars".

STEPHEN COLBERT: Donald Trump saw their threat of apocalypse and raised them one armageddon.

North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un watches a military drill marking the 85th anniversary of the establishment of the Korean People's Army on April 26, 2017. It was an absurdly overdramatic statement that would've been laughable if Trump weren't a maniac threatening to kill a whole bunch of people, but Trump now thinks that he should've been even more absurdly overdramatic.
