Justice Minister: Trump's rhetoric around North Korea 'unhelpful and scary'

Donald Trump is on a golf vacation (or golfcation, if that were a word), but that hasn't stopped him from fucking things up from the gilded throne of his wifi-enabled bathroom.

One of President Trump's most famous critics came to his defense this week after a vow of "fire and fury" for North Korea: former Vice President Al Gore.

The trade investigation could strain relations between the USA and China as the two countries wrestle with the unpredictable situation over North Korea.

But unnamed sources told the AP that the talks have done little to quell concerns about North Korea's escalation of its missile and nuclear program, though the sources also suggested that negotiation could still be possible, if Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un publicly choose negotiations instead of threats.

Military solutions are now fully in place, locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely.

North Korea's weapons program has developed significantly since then. He lists seven strategies "that won't work" - Trump has leaned most heavily on these two: "A US preemptive strike" and "Treating North Korea as a problem for China to solve". "I think he's there mentally".

Seth Meyers of NBC also weighed in, beginning: "According to the Washington Post, North Korea now has the ability to fit a miniature nuclear warhead on missiles that are capable of reaching North America".




In addition, recent UN Security Council sanctions, imposed to take out North Korea's economy, are taking this risky situation up another notch, possibly leading Pyongyang to possibly take action against Guam or cities like Seoul or Tokyo, cities with millions of people. So if anything, maybe that statement wasn't tough enough. "There is no more time to stick our heads in the sand and think we have months or years to confront this challenge".

"North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States", Trump told reporters on Tuesday.

ZELDIN: Well, if the North Koreans know that significant - I believe that what really triggered North Korea this week primarily was the action at the U.N. Security Council last weekend, that North Korea was going to be amping up their rhetoric and their threats this week exclusively based on the U.N. Security Council resolution, if not for anything else.

A lot of people have questioned Trump's threatening language.

In an editorial on Saturday, North Korea's Minju Joson newspaper said that the US "finds itself in an ever worsening dilemma, being thrown into the grip of extreme security unrest by the DPRK". Trump added that he hopes to increase the USA military budget "by many billions of dollars".

The sanctions target about a third of North Korea's estimated $3 billion in annual exports. Listen, they threaten us in a way you never will. Experts on the crisis repeated a call made by the Trump administration in recent months: China, North Korea's top trading partner and protector, must step in.

"Nobody in their right mind believes North Korea is going to stop until somebody makes Kim Jong Un stop", Graham said.
