Trump Expected to Officially Declare the Opioid Crisis a 'National Emergency'

North Korea Says The U.S. is a Little Lump They Can Turn Into Jelly

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 USA, it should "stay neutral", sending a warning to Pyongyang that Beijing would not support the regime if it made a first move.

But that's what Trump did this week, and even North Korea-the potential adversary in the aforementioned nuclear war-was critical of the golf outing.

Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman John McCain said in an interview with Phoenix radio station KTAR that he takes "exception to the President's comments because you've got to be sure that you can do what you say you're going to do".

Earlier in the day, Tillerson, returning from a trip to Asia, said he saw no reason to believe that war was imminent despite the heated exchange of warnings between Trump and Pyongyang.

"I do not see a military solution to this conflict", she added. In discussions with advisers beforehand, he had not run the specific language by them, though he had talked over possible responses in a general way.

"We're getting close. We're getting very close", Trump told reporters at his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey, on Thursday. So I think what we need to do is put the unification of Korea on one side and say look, let's work to preserve the security of the countries of the region without the use of nuclear weapons. For more detail on what he said, we're joined by Geoff Bennett.

Other foreign leaders raised questions about whether there was a military option in North Korea.

"President Trump's threat to rain down "fire and fury" on North Korea is like pouring gasoline on a fire", Mr Humphrey wrote.

The trade investigation is expected to be only one part of a multi-pronged push by the Trump administration to counter Chinese trade abuses, which Trump frequently railed against as a candidate.

Trump continued to ramp up the rhetoric with a post on Twitter this morning indicating that the prepared to take military action against North Korea. "If he does something with Guam, it will be an event the likes of which nobody has seen before, what will happen to North Korea".

Setting aside speculation on Trump's soundness of mind frequent among experts on the subject of mental health-the North's criticism of Trump's golfing habit is a common criticism of the president in the well. That's another problem with the administration: you don't really know what their strategy is. They go back and forth; they send conflicting signals.

KK: Do you think Trump's threats degrade our credibility?

"This man will not get away with what he is doing", Trump told reporters. At some point either Trump is going to have to reverse himself and damage credibility, or he's going to feel compelled to execute on those threats, which could cost the lives of a lot of people.
