Sebastian Gorka denies dismissing Tillerson's role on North Korea

Sebastian Gorka denies dismissing Tillerson's role on North Korea

"President Trump said that North Korea's threats against the United States, if they continue, will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen before".

Mr. Trump did order a review of USA nuclear posture and strategy early in his presidency, but that's different from modernization and bringing old systems up to usable standards.

As for doing nothing to help America, Trump has attacked the vicious M5-13 gang, given us the highest stock market ever, curbed illegal immigration, lowered unemployment, taken away many regulations that strangled businesses, and worked on better police support and conditions for veterans.

Trump went on to say, "Hopefully we will never have to use this power, but there will never be a time that we are not the most powerful nation in the world".

So while Trump may have said before he took office that the USA has to "strengthen and expand its nuclear capability", not much has truly happened on that front just yet, no matter what you read on Twitter.

Steny Hoyer, the No. 2 Democrat in the U.S. House of Representatives, said Trump's threat to North Korea "is reckless and shows a serious lack of judgment".

While the President has threatened "fire and fury", and on Thursday added that his comments perhaps hadn't been tough enough, Tillerson has repeatedly said his interest is in applying "peaceful pressure" to get Pyongyang to agree to talks. I just wonder when President Trump will try and claim that he too doesn't need to use a toilet or that his hair is the envy of every man, woman and child on the planet.

An adviser to President Donald Trump said it was "simply nonsensical" to think that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson should discuss USA military decisions in relation on North Korea.

On Wednesday morning, Trump retweeted "Fox & Friends" tweets about Trump's fiery rhetoric. "I think the president just wanted to be clear to the North Korean regime that the USA has unquestionable ability to defend itself, will defend itself and its allies, and I think it was important that he deliver that message to avoid any miscalculation on their part".

The president's retweets about his rhetoric Tuesday come as Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was urging calm.

Trump's unexpected remarks prompted North Korea to respond by saying it was considering plans for a missile strike on the U.S. Pacific territory of Guam.

Sebastian Gorka, deputy assistant to the president, made the comments to the BBC amid reports of division within the Trump administration on how to handle North Korea.
