Not going to run scared from North Korea: Nikki Haley

Not going to run scared from North Korea: Nikki Haley

"It's not a cartoon because of its increasing capabilities".

Separately, Japan's defense ministry assessed in a report Tuesday that it is possible that North Korea has achieved the miniaturization of nuclear weapons and has developed nuclear warheads.

Indeed, North Korea has been diligent about testing its nuclear weapons, especially its intercontinental ballistic missiles. What's more, North Korean officials have suggested the sanctions won't achieve what United Nations officials set out to do in the first place: stop the country from developing its nuclear program. On Sunday, for instance, Pyongyang's state-run KCNA news agency warned the United States against "believing that its land is safe across the ocean" with North Korea's steady missile advances.

The U.N. Security Council voted unanimously this weekend to pass new sanctions on North Korea as punishment for its nuclear and missile programs.

Robert Jeffress, a senior pastor of a Texas megachurch, backed the President and said he has the moral authority to launch an attack on North Korea. "First I would negotiate, I would negotiate like insane", Trump said.

Far from starting a war with Kim, either in the Twittersphere or in a real world stratospheric nuclear conflict, President Trump has continued his predecessor's policy of worldwide condemnation and ever harsher sanctions.

It also betrays a mistake in Mr Trump's assessment of Kim's mentality. Speaking on Fox Business on Monday, Sebastian Gorka, a national security adviser, called North Korea a "lilliputian nation" that was engaged in bluster and blackmail.

A new CNN poll shows that a majority (52%) of Americans say Trump's tweets are not an effective way for him to share his views on important issues, and 72% say they do not send the right message to other world leaders.

Appearing on KTAR's Mac & Gaydos, McCain said he took exception to the president's comments because "you got to be sure you can do what you say you're going to do".

He added, "That kind of rhetoric, I'm not sure how it helps". As NPR's Michele Kelemen reports, the us has struggled to get other countries to follow through on sanctions.
