Congress Is Pushing Back Against Trump's Dangerously Ignorant Nuclear Threats

On Thursday, Defense Secretary James Mattis said the military is ready to counter the threat from North Korea, but also said the effort is being "diplomatically led".

President Trump likes to scare people with his rhetoric, says worldwide human rights lawyer Curtis Doebbler.

In a letter sent to Republican Senator Ann McLane Kuster, Humphrey said that Trump is making a bad situation worse with his recent promise that North Korea would face "fire and fury" if it continued to threaten the United States, a local news station WMUR first reported.

"The United States must ponder over the fatal consequences that might arise from its rash act", the statement said. "They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen", Trump said.

"Congress must act to preserve global stability by restricting the circumstances under which the USA would be the first nation to use a nuclear weapon", Lieu said then. Mexican officials freaked out.

We can not leave our national security and our families' safety in the hands of a president whose poor judgment, belligerence, vindictiveness and reckless impetuosity constitute an indictment of his mental health.

The air is thick with anticipation, as over a lakh spectators watch on eagerly from the pavilions on the banks. For women participants, the contest was opened up in the Thara and Kettuvalom categories.

"Surprisingly perhaps, in this case, Trump himself has been relatively consistent..." Days later, Vice President Mike Pence reassured jittery allies: "Our commitment is unwavering".

"No, I don't see it that way", said attorney Marc Scaringi, co-chairman of Trump's Pennsylvania campaign in 2016. "An attack on one of us is an attack on all of us". Nikki Haley, U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, was put on walk-back patrol the next day.

The statement by the Communist Government of Kim Il Sung came just hours after it handed over what it said were remains of 17 American soldiers killed in the Korean War.

The German has less than 12 months to run on his existing deal at the Emirates but offers to leave the club have been in short supply.

The cleanup patrol has a domestic operation, too. "We should have been dealing with this 10 years ago. That's the story now, not what might happen in September". They agreed that the Pyongyang regime presents enough of a threat to the world that the USA should deal with it and the president is right to use the strong language he did.

There have been other such cleanup actions, and there will inevitably be more, as Trump's advisers try to convey to the world a perverse message: Rest assured, sleep well - and pay no attention to the president's yammering.

North Korea talk drags stocks lower; gold, yen rise
USA crude was unchanged at $48.59 per barrel and Brent was last at $51.84, down 1.63 percent on the day. Geopolitical risks can boost demand for assets considered safe-haven investments, such as gold.
