French leader urges calm in North Korea crisis

Washington and Pyongyang have recently been exchanging sharp statements. Marco Rubio, a member of the Senate foreign affairs committee, defended President Donald Trump's stark warning to North Korea in a series of tweets Thursday morning.

Soderberg criticizes the president's lack of diplomacy and she personally wishes that the worldwide community increase pressure on North Korea rather than use outright force. Ben Cardin, the Foreign affairs committee's top Democrat, compared Trump's comments to those issued by North Korea itself. "This is tragicomedy of its own making". "They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen", Trump said.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Wednesday there is no "imminent threat" from North Korea, despite Trump's remarks the day before.
