Trump warns NKorea that United States is 'locked and loaded'

Trump warns NKorea that United States is 'locked and loaded'

"It is critical that the Trump administration exhaust all diplomatic options before resorting to military force", Cicilline wrote. Still, while it's understandable that Trump wants to threaten "fire and fury" after Kim's provocations, Colbert said, when "you're in a hostage negotiation, you don't start with 'Go ahead, kill everybody".

"The president alone has the authority to launch nuclear weapons, the only restraint being the advice of senior advisors who might be present at the time of crisis, and Donald Trump has shown repeated contempt for informed and wise counsel". But Trump said Friday that millions of Americans support their president "sticking up" for the US and its allies.

Asked Friday about U.S. President Donald Trump's latest statements, Merkel declined to say whether Germany would stand with the U.S.in case of a military conflict with North Korea.

Klingner previously told TheBlaze that when it comes to North Korea, the U.S.is "in it for the long haul".

Lavrov said Russian Federation doesn't accept the North's nuclear weapons bid and pointed at a proposal by China and Russian Federation under which Pyongyang would freeze its nuclear and missile tests while the USA and South Korea would halt their military drills.

Cicilline said Trump "has made a unsafe situation even worse by recklessly asserting that the United States is "locked and loaded" to bring "fire and fury" to North Korea".

The North Korea expert said the president's comments reaffirm to the governments of South Korea and Japan, both of which are USA allies, that the U.S.is prepared for a preventative attack against North Korea, "which could trigger an all-out war on the peninsula, which obviously affects them".

Both China and Russian Federation joined with the U.S.to approve the new economic sanctions on North Korea, New York Magazine reported.

"We just didn't do it in public", she said. "Hopefully Kim Jong Un will find another path!" Particularly, Klingner told TheBlaze, South Korea and Japan are anxious about the "direction of USA policy" and "the manner in which it will be carried out". Following a warning from Trump Tuesday that the U.S. would unleash "fire and fury" on it if it endangered the United States, North Korea announced it would launch four missiles into the waters near the Western Pacific U.S. territory of Guam.
