Asserting that United States would not be initiating the disarmament rump said,”Until such a time as they do, we will be the most powerful nuclear nation on Earth by far”.
In more tranquil terms than Trump, Tillerson sought to explain the thinking behind Trump’s warning.
Pyongyang hits back at Donald Trump, calling his “fire and fury” comment “a load of nonsense”, while also outlining plans to launch four missiles over Japan, aiming for the waters near the US Pacific outpost of Guam. Trump’s heated rhetoric comes as his secretary of state seeks to downplay the words.
U.S. President Donald Trump’s avowal to unleash “fire and fury” on North Korea if they don’t “get their act together” has raised the spectre of a nuclear confrontation between the countries, ratcheting up public anxiety about the potential for such a devastating event.
“My first order as President was to renovate and modernize our nuclear arsenal”, he wrote.
The annual military parade in Pyongyang is often used to showcase North Korea’s latest and most powerful equipment, and perhaps create fear overseas. Trump is, “deadly serious [and] very curious”, adding that the president is willing to take action if necessary.
So we all have to rally around the leader because he chose to threaten North Korea with nuclear destruction. The Brits, the United States and the Russians all signed an agreement that they would protect the political and territorial integrity of Ukraine if they gave up the nuclear weapons after the USSR fell.
It is not the first time Trump has attempted to portray himself as being more popular than Obama. “He’s going to stop the threat”.
By virtually any measure, however, the US nuclear arsenal is smaller and less powerful than it was at its Cold War peak. But in the realm of nuclear weapons, calm talk and promises of restraint have long proved superior approaches, and even more so in times of crisis.
Although Trump’s retweet does not show that he is more popular than Obama, it does further reinforce the suggestion that he is “obsessed” with his predecessor.
Trump followed up on Twitter on Wednesday morning.
“The day North Korea decides to attack the United States or any neighbor would be the last day of the North Korean regime and the last day of Kim Jong Un’s life”, Rubio said in Jacksonville.
Twenty-three years ago, when then-President Clinton threatened military action against North Korea if it did not abandon its nuclear plans, the Korean regime laughed because they knew Clinton was a weasel, afraid to take worldwide chances.
