Concerns over "increasingly confrontational" North Korea dispute

Concerns over

A day after an incendiary rebuke of North Korea, President Donald Trump touted U.S. nuclear capabilities on Twitter, potentially further escalating a growing standoff with Pyongyang.

As for doing nothing to help America, Trump has attacked the vicious M5-13 gang, given us the highest stock market ever, curbed illegal immigration, lowered unemployment, taken away many regulations that strangled businesses, and worked on better police support and conditions for veterans.

Mattis warned that any action by North Korea would be grossly overmatched by the U.S. and that while the USA is pursuing diplomatic solutions, the combined military power of America and its allies is the most robust on Earth.

Lewis said that Trump had ordered a Nuclear Posture Review - a paper study - which many other presidents also ordered, including Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, and George W. Bush.

That was the year the president, who at the time was just a businessman of course, appeared on NBC's Meet the Press and talked about what he'd do if he was commander-in-chief. I just wonder when President Trump will try and claim that he too doesn't need to use a toilet or that his hair is the envy of every man, woman and child on the planet.

Gorka denies dismissing Tillerson's role on North Korea
Defense Secretary James Mattis on Thursday appeared to downplay the possibility of armed conflict. In response, North Korea announced it was developing plans for a missile strike against Guam.

President Donald Trump is retweeting news coverage about his heated rhetoric against North Korea, even as his secretary of state is downplaying Trump's words.

While the US has daunting nuclear power, the Pentagon's program has been beset with morale, training, discipline and resource problems. Trump tweeted this morning. Another included a video clip of Trump vowing to respond to North Korean threats with "fire and fury". Tillerson said Wednesday as he returned from an Asia trip he doesn't believe there is "any imminent threat".

Speaking in New Jersey at his golf course, Trump declined to rule out a preemptive strike on North Korea, saying he wouldn't discuss potential military options.

He insisted that nothing has changed over the past 24 hours that would make a military response to the dispute more likely adding that "the American people should sleep well at night". He says that they should "have no concerns about this particular rhetoric of the last few days".

Sebastian Gorka, deputy assistant to Trump, interpreted the president's latest tweet as a warning to Pyongyang.
