Eddie Baza Calvo, on the U.S. territory in an area of the Pacific that North Korea has threatened to strike with missiles, said he spoke with Trump and chief of staff John Kelly, and he posted audio of the call on Facebook. "I'm not even sure that Trump cares about having a consistent policy on any subject". And then they gave the greatest power they knew at that time, the power to declare war, to Congress. Senator Markey and I believe there is no way that the framers would have allowed one person, the President, to launch thousands of nuclear missiles, and kill hundreds of millions of people in less than hour, without congressional approval.
On Thursday, North Korean state media detailed a plan to launch four intermediate-range missiles toward the territory, suggesting that it would splash the Hwasong-12 missiles into the sea less than 25 miles Guam's coast.
Last month, North Korea successfully tested a long-range missile that could reach cities in the United States. Pyongyang identified three of the prefectures as the regions over which its missiles would fly on the way toward the U.S. territory.

He said he wouldn't discuss any potential military options, but he did say the USA would retaliate if North Korea attacks Guam, which is a US territory. So now you have the problem where you've got Trump potentially backing himself into a corner with all these threats. President Trump keeps heating it up. Nobody in the world - especially not North Korea - comes close to challenging our military capabilities. Trump has urged the Chinese government to exert more pressure on the North Korean regime, with little success.
The issue came to the fore again this week when US intelligence analysts assessed that North Korea had produced a miniaturized nuclear warhead, according to multiple sources, which would bring the country a significant step closer to being able to fire a nuclear-tipped warhead at the USA or its allies. The president took questions from reporters from his golf club in New Jersey yesterday.
Not everyone in the administration was following Trump's lead. The administration has been eyeing other moves to rebalance the US-China trading relationship. The U.N. Security Council this past weekend adopted new, tougher sanctions, seeking to curtail North Korea's nuclear ambitions.
By using stark terms, Carafano said Trump aimed to tell "the people who put him into office that you voted for me to be a tough commander in chief, and I will defend the nation". Would have been a lot easier to solve this years ago, before they were in the position they are in. We're reaching out to a number of Republicans to see if they would co-author. The second reason there's no good military option is because North Korea has in addition to nuclear weapons, chemical weapons as well.

According to him, over 3,000 delegates will attend the convention, including former members of Ali Modu Sheriff faction. According to Adeyeye, the convention is a unity gathering of the PDP family which the global community will monitor.
Speaking alongside vice president Mike Pence, Trump also said that China could do "a lot more" to pressure Pyongyang to end its nuclear weapons program, despite his ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley paying tribute to the Communist country when they backed the USA motion for further sanctions at the Security Council meeting on Saturday.
Earlier in the day, Trump issued a warning to North Korea.
"I saw a lot of things that I shouldn't have to see in your lifetime", he said. President George W. Bush put North Korea in the "axis of evil", a trio of nations that included Iraq, which the US invaded the next year.
Despite Trump's blustery warning of "fire and fury," which he amplified further in comments to reporters Thursday, warships are not known to be moving toward the Korean peninsula, a tactic deliberately publicized during previous tense times to signal USA resolve. As tensions continued to mount, the President ratcheted up his rhetoric by vowing to inflict "fire and fury the like of which the world has never seen" on the communist state if it does not back down.
