President Trump won't back off, stays forceful against North Korea

The tweets were in response to the news that North Korea is quickly on its way to becoming a nuclear power, according to The Washington Post.

Following a warning from Trump Tuesday that the U.S. would unleash "fire and fury" on it if it endangered the United States, North Korea announced it would launch four missiles into the waters near the Western Pacific U.S. territory of Guam.

"And President Trump is not helping the situation with his bombastic comments".

President Donald Trump is stressing the United States' nuclear capabilities, saying "there will never be a time that we are not the most powerful nation in the world!"

"My first order as President was to renovate and modernize our nuclear arsenal", the president wrote shortly before 8 a.m. on Wednesday.

Rasmussen reported that 45 percent of Americans supported a military solution to North Korea's nuclear missiles in a poll last month. Only then will the Department of Defense revitalize the country's nuclear weapons.

Donald Trump is on the right track in dealing with North Korea.

After breezing through the first set, Wozniacki let a 3-1 lead in the second slip away as Stephens levelled at 3-3. I need some time to analyze this day (Saturday) and then move into final (Sunday), which is really soon".

North Korea has laughed off Trump's threats, saying they have already planned to attack waters near the USA base in Guam this month.

"I think we really just need to let them stew in their own juice, leave them alone".

"What the president is doing is sending a strong message to North Korea in language that Kim Jong Un would understand, because he doesn't seem to understand diplomatic language", Tillerson said.

"I'm encouraged that the president is committed, like previous presidents before him, to modernizing our nuclear arsenal because it is our ultimate deterrent against any kind of threat, including one from North Korea".

On Saturday Trump tweeted that he definitely is not on vacation, despite scheduled plans to spend 17 days at his Bedminster, New Jersey golf course. "I think that's why the rhetoric coming out of Pyongyang is beginning to become louder and more threatening". Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said Democrats "have to park their hatred of Donald Trump and put the country first".

The same strongman posturing has also been behind Trump's dismissal of the Obama-era "strategic patience" approach to North Korea as so much politically correct code, even if, as some pundits have observed, the same policy has been mostly maintained behind the scenes. Graham said it is a necessary change.
