Trump to Kim Jong-un Yes, One False Move And We'll Nuke You

Financial Markets Wall Street

The president doubled down on his nuclear tough talk Thursday by suggesting his recent pledge - that North Korea would face "fire and fury like the world has never seen" if it didn't stop threatening the United States - could have been stronger. 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. "It is now far stronger and more powerful than ever before", he wrote on Twitter.

Trump went on to say, "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".

Starting on Wednesday night, the Republican president retweeted a series of Twitter posts related to his Democratic predecessor, starting with one by John Bolton, a former USA ambassador to the United Nations and Fox News contributor, who said the United States is at risk because of Obama.

Gorka's statements come amid confusion about the administration's policy toward North Korea after a series of statements that have been dramatically different in tone and have sent starkly different messages.

In Graham's opinion, "the time for talking is running out".

The major US averages ended down about 0.2 percent overnight, with the Dow snapping a 10-day winning streak, as Trump's remarks added to concerns about rising tensions between the USA and North Korea.

A Republican who's a leading voice on defense issues says President Donald Trump has "basically drawn a red line" with his strong warning on North Korea.

She added: "Trump's tweet gives the misleading impression that he has already ordered concrete changes to the U.S. nuclear arsenal". One said "Trump vows USA "power" will meet North Korean threat".

Newsweek asked Stephen Schwartz, an independent nuclear weapons expert and editor/co-author of the book Atomic Audit, if Trump's tweets Wednesday morning were true.

Trump and North Korea have been exchanging escalating threats, with the North saying it was examining plans for attacking Guam.

He insisted that nothing has changed over the past 24 hours that would make a military response to the dispute more likely adding that "the American people should sleep well at night".
