Cardin: Trump's warning for North Korea isn't a game plan

Cardin: Trump's warning for North Korea isn't a game plan

In that address, Trump threatened that if the North Koreans even think about attacking, they should be very nervous "because things will happen to them like they never thought possible", Trump said, adding "they're going to be in trouble like few nations have ever been in trouble in this world", he added. Nevertheless, we are entering a particularly risky phase of the process, not least because the other two major nuclear powers in the world, China and Russian Federation, both have land borders with North Korea. And there's a way forward. Do you think the president's language helps or hurts right now? It's not acceptable for the United States. That means really enforcing sanctions.

"We are not receiving updates or briefings at all".

The South Carolina Republican told radio host Hugh Hewitt that he's spoken with the President about the dilemma of pre-emptively striking North Korea to stop it from obtaining a nuclear weapon that could hit the United States.

"You go on social media and you go on anywhere and you're just bombarded with the media talking about this".

Gold Prices Jump as Political Instability Moves Dollar Lower
The yeild on the benchmark 10-year Treasury yields fell as low as 2.197 percent overnight, their lowest level since June 28. Japan is the world's biggest creditor country and there is an assumption investors there will repatriate funds in a crisis.


JUDY WOODRUFF: Well, do you have an understanding that this administration is working on enforcing those sanctions, whether it's the secretary of state or the president's national security advisers or others in the administration? "They will be met with the fire and fury like the world has never seen".

Mr Trump is the toddler in the auto; the rest of the administration - or at least some of them - are the adults struggling to keep USA diplomacy moving in the right direction, though nobody has all of the tools needed either. That's not an acceptable course.

Benjamin J. Cruz tells The Associated Press in a telephone interview, "We're just praying that the United States and the. defense system we have here is sufficient enough to protect us". And we're prepared to work this administration to make it easier for China to be tougher on North Korea. How anxious should the American people be about, oh, something happening, whether it's an attack by the North Koreans or some other step that would result in something catastrophic?

Asked Friday if the USA was going to war, he said cryptically, "I think you know the answer to that".

Five places to get eclipse glasses before the big day
Unlike places like Hopkinsville, which will experience a total eclipse, areas like Evansville will only see a partial eclipse. Glasses or other solar filters also shouldn't be used if they're scratched or damaged, according to the astronomical society.


Trump's words, both in person and on social media, fell into a pattern of what USA allies and partners describe as a concerning new reality, that of a world leader constantly ratcheting up his rhetoric while playing to his political base, even on the world stage. So, this is a very, very serious matter.

"She is alarmed by the policies and actions of Mr. Trump, and her top priority remains the safety of the American people". The Department of Defense does their mission best of any country in the world.

But I think we have let this situation get too unsafe.

Speaking in California later Thursday, Mattis praised the diplomatic leadership of Tillerson and U.S. Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley, as well as a unanimous vote by the UN Security Council to impose fresh sanctions on North Korea. Said Throckminion, "We can not allow hard-working American zombies and mutants to be displaced by low-skilled immigrant zombies and mutants who will depress wages based on our new currency system of cigarettes, water, antibiotics, and gender-neutral prostitutes".

Trump Claims Undue Credit for Revamping Nuclear Arsenal
Political analysts have been warning that the White House should take into consideration China's position on this boiling issue. North Korea hit back hours later, saying it is ready to carry out an attack near the U.S. island of Guam.
