North Korea's Nuclear Threat Doesn't Phase Samsung's Shareholders

Oh, and he took some time off the greens today to bring the world to the brink of nuclear war with North Korea.

The remark was improvised, apparently in reaction to a Washington Post story on how the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency assesses North Korea as having achieved a miniaturized nuclear warhead that can fit on the long-range missiles it is testing. "So I recognize that, you know, he's entitled to have his own team, and his own leadership in charge of the intelligence community, and he has that".

MARTIN: What - are President Trump's words, though, undermining the potential effectiveness of those sanctions if it just keeps escalating the rhetoric and escalating the threats that North Korea throws back?

"North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States", Trump told reporters on Tuesday.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un "has been very threatening beyond a normal state, and as I said they will be met with fire and fury and frankly power, the likes of which this world has never seen before", he said.

Gore said that Trump "inherited a very risky situation" from previous world leaders and so should not be blamed entirely for the escalation, which most recently saw North Korea promising a plan to strike the USA territory of Guam within days.

ZELDIN: Absolutely. Wherever you have any entity, whether it's an individual, a - or a business organization that is helping the North Koreans with their exports or obviously anything specifically targeting - directed to their program, then we should be using that leverage to show how serious we are and get China to hopefully up their game. North Korea has launched more than a dozen test missiles this year. "They count on me to be a straight shooter with a calm voice". "The United States, we sanction a lot of other countries, OK?"

According to the source, the talks are being held between Ambassador Joseph Yun, the USA special representative for North Korea policy, and Pak Song Il, a senior North Korean diplomat at the country's United Nations mission, using what's known as the "New York channel", which has been an avenue of communication between the US and North Korea throughout the years.

"That would send a signal to North Korea and China that would probably do more good to avoid war than anything I can think of".

Humphrey served two terms in the U.S. Senate as a Republican from 1979-1990.

The sanctions target about a third of North Korea's estimated $3 billion in annual exports.

Limbaugh also expressed concern over the approach by Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, towards the problem of North Korea. Yun and North Korean diplomat Pak Song II negotiated the release of imprisoned American college student Otto Warmbier in June.

"Nobody in their right mind believes North Korea is going to stop until somebody makes Kim Jong Un stop", Graham said.
