War of Words Heats Up between President Trump and North Korea

Share

Sen. Lindsey Graham and Pres. Donald Trump have had their differences but on Friday, the senator took to social media to defend the president amid rising tensions between the USA and North Korea.

In an interview with a South Carolina CBS affiliate on Thursday the South Carolina senator supported President Trump's fiery rhetoric against North Korea.

Earlier this week, Kim Jong Un said that Pyongyang is considering an attack on Guam, which hosts multiple United States military bases after Trump threatened Pyongyang with "fire and fury". The backchannel communications, which began shortly after Trump's negotiation, have carried on to the present day and could "be a foundation for more serious negotiation, including on North Korea's nuclear weapons", according to the AP.

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".

"On the situation on the Korean peninsula obviously the Secretary General remains extremely concerned by the ongoing situation; he's troubled by the increase in confrontational rhetoric that we've seen", a spokesman for Guterres said.

Murphy declined to comment on the president's remarks, nor would he confirm published reports that US Ambassador Joseph Yun is engaged back-channel diplomacy with North Korea.

He went on to say that whatever the United States has been doing with respect to North Korea, clearly isn't working and it's time to think about a new and different strategy.

In response of Trump's dire warning، North Korea said it was "carefully examining" a plan to strike the American Pacific territory of Guam with missiles. At a minimum, Pyongyang would renew its long-standing demands for an end to joint U.S. -North Korea negotiations collapsed in 2012 when Pyongyang launched a long-range rocket that derailed an agreement of a North Korean nuclear freeze in exchange for US food aid.
