President Donald Trump tweeted Friday that military solutions for North Korea are “locked and loaded” should dictator Kim Jong-un act “unwisely.”
Secretary of Defense James Mattis said Thursday that the United States wants a diplomatic solution to its ongoing tension with North Korea.
The Department of State has announced it will restrict all U.S. citizens from traveling into, in, or through North Korea beginning Sept. 1. This warning, issued on Thursday, comes in the wake of the escalating rhetoric between the DPRK and President Donald Trump over the past few days.
A top national security adviser to President Donald Trump said Thursday that the idea of Secretary of State Rex Tillerson discussing military matters regarding North Korea is “simply nonsensical,” adding that future threats from Pyongyang will be met with war.
