Trump Refuses to Discuss Preemptive Strike, Says Negotiations Always Considered

Trump Military solutions ‘locked & loaded’ against North Korea

The man behind the documentary "An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power" may not see eye-to-eye with Mr. Trump on environmental issues, but he told Newsweek for an interview published Friday that diplomatic crises over North Korea's nuclear weapons program is another story. But what - where it wouldn't help is if we were to take in the action of fire and fury in response to a provocative statement being said where North Korea isn't actually going to be engaging in military action against us. The military threatened to "turn the USA mainland into the theater of a nuclear war" and added that any American strike on North Korean missile and nuclear targets would be "mercilessly repelled".

"This is a decision that we are going to take very soon", he said from his golf course in Bedminster, New Jersey, where he is on vacation. What he's thinking can change depending on the day of the week. So that makes any military conflict hard because a lot of it is flying blind. "Because things will happen to them like they never thought possible, OK?"

"I support peace, I support safety, and I support having to get very tough if we have to protect America or our allies", said Trump.

Trump also mentioned that he will push for more funding to go towards anti-missile defense due to the threat of North Korea and other countries.

MARTIN: Let me ask you on that in seconds remaining - are you convinced that China will stick to these sanctions?

Stopping in Guam for to refuel, he said he was hopeful a global "pressure campaign" involving Russian Federation and China could lead to dialogue with Pyongyang "about a different future".

United have also been linked with Inter Milan wide attacker Ivan Perisic over the summer and still appear to be interested.

The decision will not only take action against alleged Chinese violations of U.S. companies' intellectual property rights, but also could be perceived as an attempt by the USA government to crank up the pressure on China to leverage its influence in tempering North Korea's increasingly aggressive posture. At times, the White House has tried to deprive North Korea of the attention experts believe its erratic leader seeks with each nuclear test.

During a meeting August 8 in New Jersey, where Trump is on a working vacation, the president said North Korea "best not make any more threats towards the United States".

Not everyone in the administration was following Trump's lead.

Tensions with North Korea escalated this week following reports that it is one step closer to being able to hit the continental US with an intercontinental ballistic missile.

Last night, North Korea's military called President Trump's fire-and-fury threat a, quote, "load of nonsense".

Trump's statement about overall nuclear strength is debatable. We're reaching out to a number of Republicans to see if they would co-author. So it's a very bad place for America to be in when our executive branch doesn't seem to know what it's doing. "That's my responsibility", Mattis told reporters as he flew to Seattle for meetings with tech industry officials.
