Nikki Haley Slams 'Incredibly Dangerous' North Korea Article Trump Retweeted

President Trump North Korea’s threats ‘will be met with fire and fury

South Korean President Moon Jae-in and his US counterpart, Donald Trump, agreed to apply maximum pressure and sanctions on North Korea in a telephone call on Monday, while China expressed hope that North and South Korea could resume contact soon.

He said during a conference: 'North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States.

Alarm in Washington over North Korean leader Kim Jong-un's pursuit of nuclear capability has intensified in the past month after the North conducted two tests of intercontinental ballistic missiles for the first time last month. "They will be met with fire, fury and frankly power the likes of which this world has never seen before".

Even though the US, Russia and China - permanent members of the UN Security Council - are on the same page when it comes to trying to stop North Korea's nuclear and missile programs and to get it to return to a non-proliferation regime, they differ on what will eventually work in achieving that outcome.

President Trump had retweeted a Fox & Friends tweet early Tuesday that had promoted the story. Significantly, the sanctions were supported by China, which accounts for more than 90% of North Korea's external commerce.

Trump defends McMaster as conservatives seek his dismissal
Tom Cotton (R-AR) revealed that Bannon and McMaster have "very forceful differences" during NSC meetings. There's now open speculation as to whether Steve Bannon could be the next Trump staffer to be ousted.

The new assessment follows a separate United States government report estimating that Pyongyang possesses up to 60 nuclear weapons.

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said the support of China and Russian Federation for the latest sanctions sent a strong message to North Korea about what was expected of it.

United Nations ambassador Nikki Haley told NBC's Today show that she isn't sure whether the sanctions will work.

It also points to more evidence that North Korea isn't listening to the diplomatic threats from the West.

Donald Trump threatened North Korea with "fire and fury".

USA stocks fell, with the S&P 500 at a session low after Trump's comment, while a widely followed measure of stock market anxiety spiked higher and was on track to close at a one-month high. "We must be tough & decisive!"
