White House: Donald Trump and Emmanuel Macron on growing North Korea's threat

Adjust Comment Print

The United States and France have pledged to work to denuclearize North Korea.

Trump and Macron spoke over phone and discussed the need to confront the increasingly unsafe situation regarding North Korea's destabilising and escalatory behaviour, the White House said.

In the past week Donald Trump has retweeted his threats to rain down fire and fury, boasted about the readiness of his nuclear army and told a nation his "military solutions" were "fully in place, locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely".

"The worldwide community is shoulder to shoulder in ensuring North Korea stops its aggressive acts".

The warm words exchanged between Xi and Trump Friday night in the US masked underlying tensions between Beijing and Washington over how to deal with the errant regime in Pyongyang. The deployment of four Patriot interceptors was expected to be completed Saturday, a spokesman for Japan's Ministry of Defense said by phone.

"What Trump did is try to rip apart that diplomatic track by trying to immediately wave his own missiles against those of North Korea". It also said that Trump looked forward to visiting China later this year, calling the relationship between the two leaders "extremely close".

Hackenberg's average depth of target hovered around three yards until his final series, and he averaged 5.08 yards per attempt. New offensive coordinator John Morton didn't ask Hackenberg to do too much, a smart way to break him in.

Jamil Jaffer, founder of the National Security Institute at George Mason University's Antonin Scalia Law School in Arlington, Virginia, said Trump's "muscular response" to North Korea was "the exact type of resolve we need to force the hand" of Pyongyang's "Chinese patrons".

North Korea has reportedly been threatening to attack the US territory of Guam more than 2,000 miles southeast of North Korea in the Pacific Ocean.

It continued, "If the Trump administration does not want the American empire to meet its tragic doom in its tenure, they had better talk and act properly".

The president appeared to draw another red line that would trigger a USA attack against North Korea and "big, big trouble" for its leader, Kim Jong Un.

President Donald Trump has issued fresh threats of swift and forceful retaliation against nuclear North Korea, declaring the US military "locked and loaded" and warning that the communist country's leader "will regret it fast" if he takes any action against USA territories or allies. "I think he's there mentally".
