On Thursday night, Stephen Colbert took on President Trump's latest remarks on the growing tensions between the USA and North Korea.

North Korea responded with a specific threat, saying it would attack the waters around the us territory of Guam.

He said the president's threat to North Korea was "like pouring gasoline on a fire".

After threatening North Korea with "fire and fury" earlier this week, the president escalated the tension Friday with a tweet that the American arsenal is "locked and loaded". "North Korea responded today by saying they're carefully examining a plan to strike the United States territory of Guam". And my fear is the North Koreans have watched Donald Trump.

In an editorial on Saturday, North Korea's Minju Joson newspaper said that the USA "finds itself in an ever worsening dilemma, being thrown into the grip of extreme security unrest by the DPRK".

"Look North Korea, stop trying to make "us" a thing". I'm gonna make them think I'm unpredictable. -China trading relationship. But analysts have cautioned that Trump faces a huge challenge in his desire to significantly reduce the US trade deficit with China, which past year stood at more than $300 billion.

"The global situation surrounding nuclear weapons is becoming increasingly tense", Taue said today.

Trump to launch investigation into China trade violations

As Trump Threatens, US Negotiates With North Korea
On one issue there is unanimity of opinion: There are no good military options to take out North Korea's arsenal pre-emptively. On Friday, he tweeted: "Military solutions are now fully in place, locked and loaded , should North Korea act unwisely".


Asked about administration outreach on North Korea, an aide to House Speaker Paul Ryan, a member of the Gang of Eight, said: "We are briefed and updated regularly from all relevant departments and agencies as well as the White House". In addition to its nuclear arsenal, the nation has rockets and artillery aimed at Seoul, the South Korean capital that is only 35 miles from the Demilitarized Zone.

Slapping at the Washington Post, Limbaugh added, "Then all of a sudden we get a Washington Post story claiming they've miniaturized nuclear warheads, they got about 60 of 'em fit inside their missiles, and bammo [sic], everything changes". "It will involve the massive shelling of an ally's capital, which is one of the most densely packed cities on earth".

"We would like to emphasize that the Chinese government has always attached importance to intellectual property protection", a spokesman said.

ZELDIN: You know, they don't have a good track record.

Indeed. With North Korea testing two long-range ballistic missiles in July, and announcing it was "examining the operational plan" to strike US bases on Guam.

So if it just stays right where it is, the threat being made that military action by the North Koreans would be met with fire and fury - you know, and we're leveraging that in order to make important progress on the diplomacy as well as the economic pressure, which is key. Concerns were heightened late last month when tests of an intercontinental ballistic missile indicated Pyongyang may be within a year or two of obtaining the technology to reach the USA with nuclear missiles.
