Keith Ellison: 'Irresponsible' Trump could bring about first strike by North Korea

A large majority in an earlier survey said the wage gap for women isn't real

"In light of the ongoing standoff between the United States and North Korea, as well as President Trump's reckless words, I ask that you immediately call the House of Representatives back into session to debate legislation prohibiting the usa from conducting a pre-emptive nuclear strike without prior Congressional authorization", he said. It would also maintain the president's ability to retaliate for a nuclear strike. He adds that constant war games on North Korea's doorstep force it to arm itself.

Yet even then, Trump insisted that what North Korea does "can't be allowed", and the most reassurance he had to offer about the possibility of precipitously starting a huge war sometime soon was "we'll see what happens".

KCNA said on Wednesday a mass rally was held in Pyongyang to support the government.

China won't come to North Korea's help if it launches missiles threatening USA soil and there is retaliation, a state-owned newspaper warned on Friday, but it would intervene if Washington strikes first.

"It needs to ask the United States to respect its efforts to reconnect the inter-Korean dialogue channel while staying alert toward the North's provocations at the same time".

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

The new YouGov poll suggests that 68% of Americans see North Korea as an enemy.

The Pentagon said it is ready to deploy B-1B bombers if the U.S. commander in chief orders a pre-emptive strike on North Korea, said NBC News on Wednesday, citing current and former senior United States military officials.

What next for the war of words between America's Donald Trump and North Korea's Kim-Jong-un?

Since the Clinton administration in the early 1990s, the US has reacted to Pyongyang's "nuclear blackmail" with negotiated agreements that lead to aid and an easing of sanctions followed invariably by broken promises, a growing nuclear arsenal and more threats.
