Kennedy praised Trump, along with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley, for the harsh sanctions passed unanimously in the U.N. last week against North Korea, but noted the oil trade into the country still allows its ships, missiles, and planes to function. "They're a US territory". Apparently, Kim Jong Un supposedly has an arsenal of nuclear weapons, and President Donald Trump seems to be teasing an worldwide conflict.

Having come out with that kind of rhetoric from the presidential level raises the ante, and what we have always done in the past is take the rhetoric from North Korea with a grain of salt.

Ms Berger said: "I don't think we have a much higher chance of being involved in a military conflict than we did in the previous year or two".

Des Moines residents said the back-and-forth dialogue between the United States and North Korea was "terrifying", "out of control", and not a "positive thing". But when we take it seriously like this, and threaten as the president did, that is a pretty heavy message.


President Donald Trump's daily pronouncements typically are greeted by most Americans with a mixture of sarcasm and humor.

The host of "The Late Show" was referring to the burgeoning feud between President Donald Trump and North Korea's Kim Jong-un. "And as I said, they will be met with fire, fury and, frankly, power, the likes of which this world has never seen before". And I just started the "Handmaid's Tale.' You know Kim Jong-un is insane, right?"

"They count on me to be a straight shooter with a calm voice", he said to start his monologue Tuesday. "You'll get us all killed - and I just started The Handmaid's Tale".
