Trump I Have Tougher Attitude on N. Korea

Overall, 68 percent of respondents say they are concerned about the threat posed to US territories like Guam, and 69 percent are concerned about the threat to USA allies, such as Japan and South Korea - North Korea's neighbors.

Ri has previously called Trump "President Evil" and his comments are likely to fuel an escalating war of words between the USA president and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Indeed, after Trump's Victory, Trump and out-going President Obama had a long conversation in which North Korea was the main topic of conversation.

The Associated Press-NORC poll found 65 percent think Trump's comments-including calling North Korean leader Kim Jong Un "Rocket Man" and threatening to "totally detroy" the country-have made the situation between the two countries worse.

President Donald Trump has until Sunday to act, if he wants to decertify the deal under which Iran curbed its nuclear program, in return for an end to economic sanctions.

The statement follows weeks of escalating tensions between North Korea and the United States, fueled by Pyongyang's repeated nuclear tests and Trump's tough talk.

His words echoed warnings from the Trump administration that all options were on the table in dealing with North Korea's nuclear and missile development and its threats to have a weapon capable of reaching the continental United States. Unfortunately, everything Pyongyang has said or done under Kim Jong Un has been clear and consistent: North Korea sees nuclear weapons as necessary to preserve the regime and to deter attack.

I was given a visa to North Korea, as were three other New York Times journalists.

The foreign minister insisted all options were on the table for Pyongyang and that his nation reserved the right to shoot down United States planes even if they are not in Korea's air space.

One user also pointed out North Korea has conducted more missile launches under Mr Trump's presidency than any other.

Mr Carter visited North Korea in 1994 and again in 2010, helping to secure the release of United States citizen Aijalon Gomes, who was sentenced to jail for entering the country illegally. If diplomacy is not attempted today, there may not be an opportunity to prevent a catastrophic war tomorrow. Baltrumas, who leans Democratic, said he was more concerned by the "John Wayne-style machismo coming out of the White House".

The talks, comprising the US, North Korea, South Korea, China, Russia and Japan failed when they first took place a decade ago. At first I thought this was simply to restrict us, but increasingly I saw signs of something more interesting and menacing: The Foreign Ministry was also protecting us from hard-liners in the military or in the security services.

Yes, I recognize exactly how ridiculous it may seem to think that nuclear war could be sparked by comments on a popular social media platform, and I am definitely not implying that Twitter has doomed the future of man.
