Donald Trump Preparing For War With North Korea?

Donald Trump Preparing For War With North Korea?

US President Donald Trump, it seems, badly wants to go war with North Korea. Tillerson, in China, had said the United States is attempting to find a diplomatic solution to the ongoing escalation of tensions with North Korea.

Trump tweeted Saturday that agreements and negotiations have only made fools of USA negotiators.

Mr. Trump did not make clear what that one thing was, but it was enough to grab the attention of the Korean leader.

Speaking to reporters on Saturday ahead of a trip to North Carolina, Trump said he had nothing more to clarify.

Again, since all his other talking points on North Korea have been about how ready the U.S. is for war with them, it's a concerning direction he's pointing in. After a meeting with military leaders that day, Trump pointed to a line of uniformed generals and said, "You guys know what this represents? It should have been handled during the Obama administration", he added. The truth is, I was handed a mess. "Just a total mess".

"We have to have a very strong military", he said. "They also showed the calculations for a more powerful possible capable of reaching the US's Pacific coast", he reported.

Last week, he described the current period as the "calm before the storm", without elaborating.

A top Korea analyst at the Central Intelligence Agency last week said that the USA government should be ready for another North Korean provocation this week - not least because the anniversary overlaps with Columbus Day in the United States, given the 12-hour, 30-minute time difference between Pyongyang and Washington.

The situation on the Korean Peninsula remains tense amid Pyongyang's active development of its missile and nuclear programs and the US-South Korean military drills.

"I believe they're funding North Korea".

"Iran is a bad player and they will be taken care of as a bad player", he said, reinforcing expectations he will decertify the agreement this week, a step that could lead to its termination.
