The governor of Guam, the U.S. territory in the crosshairs of a North Korean missile threat, is confident the tiny island has all the military defense capabilities needed to shield against an attack by the Kim Jong Un regime.
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas on Tuesday congratulated North Korean leader Kim Jong-un on his country’s “Liberation Day,” as tensions remain high between Pyongyang and Washington over the former’s accelerating nuclear program.
President Donald Trump on Wednesday said that North Korean leader Kim Jong-un made a “very wise” decision to back off threats to attack Guam, tweeting the alternative would have been unacceptable.
Rep. Keith Ellison (D., Minn.) quickly walked back remarks he made Friday that North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un was acting “more responsible” than President Donald Trump, saying it was “tailor-made for somebody to misuse.”
President Donald Trump tweeted Friday that military solutions for North Korea are “locked and loaded” should dictator Kim Jong-un act “unwisely.”
President Donald Trump’s “fire and fury” warning to North Korea on Tuesday was improvised and induced by Pyongyang’s latest nuclear warhead developments and the president’s resultant “bellicose mood,” according to a new report.
Secretary of Defense James Mattis on Wednesday called on North Korea to stand down in its pursuit of nuclear weapons or risk taking actions that would “lead to the end of its regime and the destruction of its people.”
