CNN's Zakaria: Trump North Korea Threats 'The Art of the Bluff'

Share

Rogers and other veterans said they're standing behind President Trump as he fights against Kim Jong-un's threats.

Tens of thousands of people packed the main square of Pyongyang for a mass rally orchestrated by the North Korean regime.

Graham said the situation with North Korea is growing "increasingly unsafe". The North responded with a warning that it was considering an attack on the US territory of Guam.

"It would be unlike anything we've ever seen, something we'd see in World War II".

"I think he's trying to flex his muscles and intimidate the world and I don't think we should put up with it", said U.S. Army veteran Michael Hintz. We want you to take a live look at Guam where it is nighttime right now. North Korea's Central News Agency (KCNA) later reported that Pyongyang was "carefully examining" plans for a missile strike on the Andersen Air Force Base located on the US Pacific territory of Guam.

That letter also asked about steps to address humanitarian issues such as the reunification of Korean families separated by the armistice that concluded the Korean War, and the return of remains of USA service members left in North Korea after the war.

On August 10, a day after Trump's "fire and fury" threat, an emergency anti-war rally was held in front of the White House.

A defiant rebuke by North Korea in a statement calling President Trump's recent comments "a load of nonsense", saying the President is "a guy bereft of reason and only absolute force can work on him". H.K. Suh, the vice president of the National Association of Korean Americans, appealed to Trump to "stand down", warning that "one misstep could lead to catastrophe".

MARGARET BRENNAN: The general called the President's "fire and fury" warning a "load of nonsense". I know the president says let's see what they do with that.

Trump said that past administrations had not done enough to take on North Korea and that it is time a President "stuck up for the country".

BRENNAN: North Korea is showing further defiance to the United States.

BEN TRACY: Good morning.

North Korea has now launched more than a dozen missiles just this year and continues to threaten to turn the capital of South Korea into a "sea of fire". "Overall, 28 percent of Americans favor sending United States troops to destroy North Korea's nuclear facilities".
