Interested in the North Korean situation? Between retweeting Fox News items, Donald Trump elaborates today on his nuclear threat:


Trump’s Tuesday rhetoric prompted a return in kind from North Korea. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is trying to lower the temperature.

Tillerson defended Trump’s comments Wednesday, saying the President had sent a “strong message to North Korea in language that Kim Jong-Un would understand.”

But he also sought to reassure Americans that war was not imminent. “I have nothing that I have seen and nothing that I know of would indicate that the situation has dramatically changed in the last 24 hours,” Tillerson said on a flight from the region. “Americans should sleep well at night,” he said.

Also, Defense Secretary James Mattis issued tough talk about the potential destruction of Korean people.
