East Asia Is Seriously Freaked Out About Trump And North Korea
"It is the job of Secretary Mattis, the Secretary of Defense, to talk about the military options".
The last conflict between the USA and the DPRK, known in the U.S.as the "Korean War", resulted in massive infrastructure damage in North Korea, and the death of almost a third of their population.
Trump's remarks have prompted a reaction in China, where the state-controlled Global Times newspaper said in an editorial Friday that if North Korea launched missiles at the U.S., it should "stay neutral", sending a warning to Pyongyang that Beijing would not support the regime if it made a first move.
Trump has said he would not allow Pyongyang to develop a nuclear weapon capable of hitting the United States.
GORKA: Absolutely, absolutely. No, I never said that, I said for reporters to force our chief diplomat, the incredible Rex Tillerson to give details of military options is nonsensical. We call on the relevant parties to be cautious with their words and actions, and contribute more toward easing tensions and enhancing mutual trust, ' Geng said in a statement.
Sebastian Gorka, a deputy assistant to President Donald Trump, adamantly denied reports that he dismissed Secretary of State Rex Tillerson's role in the North Korea crisis in a radio interview. "However, right now, Secretary [of State Rex] Tillerson, Ambassador [to the U.N. Nikki] Haley, you can see the American effort is diplomatically led, it has diplomatic traction, it is gaining diplomatic results". "The whole of the Security Council has come together behind that, and I think that we should see the President's public comments as one of the strands, one of the many strands of USA activity".
Trump also says the nation's nuclear arsenal is in "in tip-top shape" and getting stronger. He does something in Guam, it will be an event the likes of which nobody's seen before, what will happen in North Korea, ' Trump told reporters in New Jersey, without offering specifics.
"The prime minister says he discussed the threat with U.S. Vice President Mike Pence overnight.
He would lash out militarily, at a minimum against South Korea", Admiral Stavridis said to NBC.
North Korea responded by claiming it is preparing a plan to fire missiles at the U.S. territory of Guam in the western Pacific.
