Florida Delegation Reacts as Tensions Escalate with North Korea

Trump says US nuclear arsenal stronger than ever

It's not hard to argue that Trump's tweet is an indirect violent threat, though it's also not hard to argue that it's a simple statement about the defensive readiness of the United States military.

Following North Korea's threat that they were going to attack the United States territory of Guam, #President Donald Trump retaliated by stating that the United States will let loose "fire and fury like the world has never seen".

The comments put Tillerson once again in the role of translating the president's aggressive rhetoric into more diplomatic terms, and of working to minimize the chances of public panic. When Clinton sent former President Jimmy Carter as a diplomat to negotiate a deal, Carter manipulated Clinton into accepting a bad deal which allowed NK to proceed with its nuclear program without adequate USA inspections.

For the benefit of his 35 million Twitter followers, he clarified that his "first order as president was to renovate and modernise our nuclear arsenal".

Shapiro: "Okay, so, even Obama was saying we 'must take action, ' and Obama would then go on to say that if North Korea were to fire some sort of nuclear weapon at the United States or any of our allies, we would retaliate in kind and destroy them". The first is to "prevent the proliferation of nuclear weapons", a strategic imperative.

Though Trump briefly paid Obama respect when the two met during the transition period, he quickly reverted back to criticizing the former president after taking office, taking aim at key cornerstones of Obama's legacy like the Affordable Care Act and the landmark Paris climate agreement.

Could US President Donald Trump's Twitter account be suspended for "threatening violence" against North Korea?

Trump matched North Korean nuclear threats with dire warnings of his own. "And I think he knows that". Part of this commitment is to be sure that American ally South Korea is not destroyed, especially when the USA allowed North Korea to have a nuclear weapon.

Sources close to the matter said that as of now, the attempts to convince North Korea to change its policy regarding the country's missile program have failed. Tillerson said Wednesday as he returned from an Asia trip he doesn't believe there is "any imminent threat". "Obviously, we're reviewing our ballistic missile defense".

Trump's tweets have made headlines several times in the past with many calling for the suspension and banning of his Twitter handle.
