Can Trump Unleash 'Fire And Fury' On North Korea Without Congressional Authorization?

Can Trump Unleash 'Fire And Fury' On North Korea Without Congressional Authorization?”

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

Gordon Humphrey, a longtime critic of Trump, said in a letter, "Donald Trump is seriously sick".

Former President Jimmy Carter has released a statement online in which he criticizes the White House's lack of effort towards finding a peaceful solution to the increasing hostile North Korea.

The former senator also encouraged the state's House representatives, both Democrats, to support legislation in the House, HR1987, the Oversight Commission on Presidential Capacity Act, which would create a commission to invoke the 25th amendment and "carry out a medical examination of the President to determine whether the President is mentally or physically unable to discharge the powers and duties of the office". "Having said that, it would be very smart if the Congress could come together and tell the president you have our authorization to use military force to stop the threat to the homeland as a last resort".

Earlier in the statement, Mr. Carter also seemed to undercut the key tenet of Mr. Trump's strategy for containing North Korea: Forcing China to use its economic sway to rein in the regime.

"I think he's made a decision long ago, quite frankly, to try to negotiate the threat with North Korea".

Trump spoke at his Bedminster National Golf Club after meeting with Vice President Pence, Chief of Staff John Kelly and National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster. All parties must assure North Koreans they we will forego any military action against them if North Korea remains peaceful. Some officials are already try to build a legal case that North Korea is a special case and that United States military action would be justified, which only adds to concerns that a USA attack might be forthcoming. "Hopefully Kim Jong Un will find another path!" he tweeted.

Based on more than 20 hours of discussions with Mr. Kim's father and grandfather, North Korea's former leaders, Mr. Carter said he believes that the country for years has wanted a peace treaty to replace the ceasefire signed at the end of the Korean War. "And to accomplish that task, our Democratic friends would have to park their hatred of [President] Donald Trump and put the country first". "His sick mind and reckless conduct could consume the lives of millions". He trashed Trump repeatedly throughout the campaign, to replace Trump as the nominee months before Election Day.
