Trump Probably Made Up That 'Fire And Fury' Quote On His Own



The statement is a direct response to bipartisan criticism of the ultimatum Trump issued to North Korea on Tuesday.

- Trump said that his administration was getting close to an updated military strategy in Afghanistan.

Trump ordered a new review of the US nuclear posture, in an executive order in January.

But in another sign of a White House and cabinet that struggles to present a united front, White House aide Sebastian Gorka blasted America's top diplomat on Thursday, suggesting that Tillerson was speaking out of turn.

"Donald Trump is impaired by a seriously sick psyche", he wrote in the letter, which was shared with WMUR. We were a superpower.

Trump's call with Xi and his plans to open the broad trade investigation come amid the escalating tensions over North Korea's nuclear and ballistic missile programs.

Sen. Lindsey Graham of SC said Trump had "basically drawn a red line" and declared Trump wasn't going to just "contain the threat".

Mourinho: Yes! Man Utd can win the title
Defenders Luke Shaw, Marcos Rojo and winger Ashley Young are out with long-term injuries. He added: "If the remaining 25 per cent doesn't arrive by August 31, I will not moan".

Trump's remarks have prompted a reaction in China, where the state-controlled Global Times newspaper said in an editorial Friday that if North Korea launched missiles at the USA, it should "stay neutral", sending a warning to Pyongyang that Beijing would not support the regime if it made a first move. He's going to stop the threat.

He then repeated a similar statement before saying "thank you".

BEN CARDIN: Ailsa, it's good to be with you.

That's even more true with a country like North Korea, whose leaders have minimal contact with Americans.

Instead, Gorka said he was criticizing journalists "who are forcing our chief diplomat into a position where they are demanding he makes the military case for action when that is not the mandate of the secretary of state".

"Kim Jong Un freezes any nuclear tests and any missile launches - we mean ballistic missiles - and the US and South Korea freeze large-scale military exercises", Lavrov said, adding that North Korea regularly uses the drills to justify its missile tests and nuclear program. In fact, Bush called North Korea one of the axis of evil countries. President Obama said that global warming is the greatest threat.

CARDIN: Well, I - yes, absolutely, because what we need to do is get North Korea to negotiate a freeze of their program and ultimately, the elimination of their nuclear weapon program.

Flotek Industries, Inc. (NYSE:FTK) Trading Volume Significantly Higher
On October 7 Oppenheimer kept the company rating at "Perform" and raised the price expectation to $18.00 from $17.00. RNC Capital Management LLC boosted its stake in shares of Flotek Industries by 10.0% in the first quarter.

Conyers and 63 other House lawmakers sent letter to Tillerson asking administration to "speak with caution and restraint " US politicians and the Korean-American community continue to criticize US President Donald Trump over his "fire and fury" remarks on August 8. China needs to be much more aggressive because China could change the equations for North Korea.

"Frankly, it's going to be a decision that's going to be made very soon".

CHANG: Well, on the other hand, the US has tried more nuanced, diplomatic talk for years with North Korea.

The current standoff involves a vast disparity in power between the two countries and no obvious effort at escalation. Is there anything to be said for that tactic? Congress has imposed additional sanctions.

But the president's ad-libbed threat reflected an evolving and still unsettled approach to one of the most unsafe hot spots in the world.

Stinson is also the son of a Korean War veteran.

Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop says Australia would not automatically be drawn into any war between North Korea and the United States. Trump has urged the Chinese government to exert more pressure on the North Korean regime, with little success.

Dollar rises after jobs data; banks lead stocks higher
In commodities , US. crude fell 0.67 per cent to $49.23 per barrel and Brent was last at $52.58, down 0.23 per cent on the day. USA stock indexes edged lower in early trading Tuesday, Aug. 8, 2017, pulling back from the market's most recent record highs.

China Central Television on Saturday cited Xi as saying that Beijing and Washington are both interested in the denuclearisation of the peninsula. You already have a nuclear power in China. That was followed by the release of photos showing North Korea had a miniature nuclear weapon that could fit in a missile head. Let's find a way to move diplomacy.
