Trump sending 'message' that Kim can 'understand': Tillerson

Sen. Marco Rubio: Nuclear attack on US would be 'the last day of Kim Jong Un's life'

Sebastian Gorka, a White House aide has described as "nonsensical" Secretary of State Rex Tillerson's statement on the military.

That's very different from what Tillerson said.

"It's extremely important for our country to secure the deterrent power of the United States", Suga told a press conference, after Trump threatened on Tuesday to unleash "fire and fury" against North Korea if it endangers his country. "I think the problem is a lunatic in North Korea with nuclear weapons".

But Gorka, a controversial figure in the national security community, dismissed Tillerson's authority on the subject.

On Friday, Trump said a military option against North Korea is "locked and loaded", ratcheting up his war of words against the Asian nation. "And I think he knows that". "I think the president just wanted to be clear to the North Korean regime on the U.S. unquestionable ability to defend itself, will defend itself and its allies".

North Korea has announced a detailed plan to launch a salvo of ballistic missiles toward the U.S. Pacific territory of Guam, a major military hub and home to U.S. bombers.

Tillerson said he never considered re-routing his trip from Malaysia so as to avoid stopping in Guam.

However, despite the rhetorical similarities between the "rain of ruin" and the "fire and fury", presidential historians like Michael Beschloss say Trump's language has been unusually harsh considering the context, noting that President John F. Kennedy's statements during the Cuban Missile Crisis were more muted and that President Dwight D. Eisenhower made a point of not matching the provocative tone of Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev.

"I never said that - that's fake news 101", Gorka said during an appearance on Fox News. To the contrary, he said the latest threat from the North suggested the current strategy was working.

According to Action News Jax, during a speech in Jacksonville on Wednesday, U.S. Sen.

"The pressure is starting to show", Tillerson said. "We either do nothing, go to war or negotiate a stand down, and so far we've seen no sign that they're willing to negotiate". Mattis urged the regime of Kim Jong-un to "cease any consideration of actions that would lead to the end of its regime and destruction of its people". Ben Cardin, the Foreign affairs committee's top Democrat, compared Trump's comments to those issued by North Korea itself. "Talks, with the right expectation of what those talks will be about".
