'Morning Joe' Panel: Is Trump Admin Employing 'Madman Theory' On North Korea?

Gorka said that Tillerson wasn't qualified to make that comment.

North Korea is daring the United States to continue their threats, and the Trump administration seems to be playing right into their hands.

According to him, "The idea that Secretary Tillerson is going to discuss military matters is simply nonsensical", "It is the job of Secretary Mattis, the secretary of defense, to talk about the military options, and he has done so unequivocally..." He said, 'Woe betide anyone who militarily challenges the United States, ' and that is his portfolio. That is his mandate. In addition to restraining the warlike rhetoric, our leaders need to encourage talks between North Korea and other countries, especially China and Russian Federation. He added that, "The great leaders I've seen don't threaten unless they're ready to act, and I'm not sure President Trump is ready to act". Asked Thursday if the administration was deliberately using a "good cop, bad cop" tactic, she sidestepped, addressing the administration's goal and not its approach.

Nancy Soderberg, a UNF faculty administrator and a candidate running for Congress, has recently responded to Trump's reaction on her campaign website.

But Gorka, a controversial figure in the national security community, dismissed Tillerson's authority on the subject.

USA officials say they will be going ahead with long-scheduled military exercises with South Korea. It said Wednesday that plans for a strike near the island would be complete by mid-August.

"This is being put together incrementally and of all the countries and all the issues you deal with، North Korea is not the one to be kludging together statements by the president and cabinet secretaries because the risk of miscalculation is so high،" Medeiros said by telephone from Tokyo، Japan. Gorka blamed the media for misinterpreting his comments. He argued that the "fake news industrial complex" had misrepresented his remarks, in which he actually said that it was inappropriate to ask the nation's top diplomat about military issues.
