Trump says he hopes not to have to use USA nukes

Posted August 13, 2017

Amid rapidly escalating tensions between the United States and North Korea-through state media, the North threatened to strike the US territory of Guam Tuesday night-Trump tweeted two posts Wednesday that read, "My first order as President was to renovate and modernize our nuclear arsenal". While it's unclear what Trump might have first said to associates in private just after taking office, his first concrete actions did not address the United States's nuclear arsenal.

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. He then added: "Hopefully we will never have to use this power, but there will never be a time that we are not the most powerful nation in the world!".

Steny Hoyer, the No. 2 Democrat in the U.S. House of Representatives, said Trump's threat to North Korea "is reckless and shows a serious lack of judgment".

The credit really lies with former President Obama and defense hawks in Congress who funded the work, especially during a time when the federal budget is subject to spending limits.

With his "fire and fury" warning, Trump was "sending a strong message to North Korea in language that (North Korean leader) Kim Jong Un would understand, because he doesn't seem to understand diplomatic language", Tillerson said. 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.

Rubio's defense of the President's comments is at odds with the opinions of some of his colleagues in the Senate - including Republicans - who criticized Trump for the harsh rhetoric. More importantly, though, he said that in the event attempts to negotiate were unsuccessful, the USA would have to "do something" about North Korea, a clear allusion to pre-emptive military action. Trump tweeted this morning.

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.

"I think Americans should sleep well at night, have no concerns about this particular rhetoric of the last few days", Tillerson said.

Sebastian Gorka, a deputy assistant to President Donald Trump, adamantly denied reports that he dismissed Secretary of State Rex Tillerson's role in the North Korea crisis in a radio interview.
