President Trump Doubles Down on North Korea

Trump says decision on Afghanistan strategy 'very close'

Gordon Humphrey has written a letter to the state's congressional delegation, calling President Donald Trump's "fire and fury" threat to North Korea "crazy" and questioning his fitness as president. White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the "tone and strength of the message were discussed" but that the exact phrasing was "his own".

Over the course of the past 7 months or so, many political pundits on the left have come forward and suggested that President Trump should be removed from office due to his alleged mental incapacity.

The president said he had a great deal of respect for China and Russian Federation and their joining in a unanimous United Nations Security Council sanctions vote. But instead of resolving the confusion over his administration's intentions toward North Korea, the president exacerbated it. President Bill Clinton stood on the border between North and South Korea to declare that if Pyongyang deployed nuclear weapons, "it could be the end of their country".

Humphrey, who has been an outspoken critic of Trump, called for Trump to be "relieved of the powers of the presidency" as soon as possible. If carried out, it would be its most provocative missile launch to date.

"The President's most recent comments are recklessly belligerent and demonstrate a grave lack of appreciation for the severity of the North Korean nuclear situation", said House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi. After Trump's "fire and fury" comment, Pyongyang announced it was examining plans for attacking the tiny Pacific island of Guam, home to a USA military base. The United Nations Security Council had already responded with tougher sanctions.

Administration spokespeople tried to assure the public that Trump's apocalyptic "fire and fury" language was improvised and, as US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said, Americans should not be concerned about the worsening rhetoric from both sides. In that letter, Humphrey asked these members of congress to take steps in order to remove President Trump from Office.

But Trump pushed aside such concerns, saying "there are no mixed messages".
