War of Words Heats Up between President Trump and North Korea

Kuster's spokesperson also said that she is concerned about the potential precedent. "Those are alarming actions, they're provocative actions on the part of North Korea".

At the same time, Trump denied having discussed a preemptive attack, apparently oblivious to that being exactly how his comments in the past couple of days have been interpreted.

In discussing the USA response to North Korea, Gorka told the BBC on Thursday: "You should listen to the president".

"This pressure campaign with North Korea is something we are all in agreement on", she said. Today he said woe betide anyone who militarily challenges the United States, and that is his portfolio, that is his mandate.

Congress and the American public will hold President Trump responsible if a careless or ill-advised miscalculation results in conflict that endangers our servicemembers and regional allies.

The Trump administration is speaking in one voice on the threat posed by North Korea, a State Department official has said, dismissing reports that there was dissent within the Government over the issue.

"These statements are irresponsible and risky, and also senselessly provide a boon to domestic North Korean propaganda, which has long sought to portray the United States as a threat to their people", reads the letter signed by the lawmakers.

"The President is sending a strong message to North Korea in the kind of language that North Korea understands".

Tillerson has also hinted at other efforts, telling reporters on August 9 that "we have a very active, ongoing diplomatic effort, most of which is behind the scenes because that's where diplomacy is most effective". "Thousands of North Korean citizens packing the square in that nation's capital in a display of unity". We want you to take a live look at Guam where it is nighttime right now. And that was on full display Wednesday in North Korea's capitol.

Trump tweeted Friday that U.S. military solutions on North Korea are "locked and loaded". It doesn't have the same flourish as "fire and fury' but it essentially means the same thing". The Obama administration did not do so. "Hopefully Kim Jong Un will find another path!" he tweeted.

Neither of the state's two House representatives ― Annie Kuster and Carol Shea-Porter, both Democrats ― support the commission out of concern it would set a risky precedent, spokespeople said.
