How Donald Trump's North Korea threats have affected the global market

How Donald Trump's North Korea threats have affected the global market”

The government has been alarmed by the escalating rhetoric of U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korea as the hermit state continues to provoke Washington, Tokyo and the United Nations with its steadily advancing nuclear weapons and missile programs.

NY [U.S.] President Donald Trump has expressed his desire to rid the world of nuclear weapons, however, saying that until other nations disarm, the United States will have the finest nuclear arsenal.

President Donald Trump issued a new threat to North Korea on Thursday, demanding that Kim Jong Un's government "get their act together" or face extraordinary trouble.

Experts say if North Korea did launch intermediate-range missiles toward Guam, all its other missiles and artillery would be ready for action.

Tensions have escalated since North Korea tested two intercontinental ballistic missiles in July.

North Korea has frequently threatened to target USA bases in the region as well as to turn the South Korean capital Seoul into a "sea of fire".

Mr Trump warned North Korea on Tuesday it would be met with "fire and fury" if it issued anymore threats. But Trump amplified the warning on Thursday, saying maybe his "fire and fury" threat "wasn't tough enough".

The North said there could never be any humanitarian cooperation, including the reunion of families separated by the Korean War, unless the South unconditionally repatriates them.

But many officials say there is a long way to go to raise public awareness about civil defense.

"Since 2006, when North Korea first conducted its nuclear test, there wasn't this much response as people became immune to frequent missile launches and nuclear tests", said Yoon Hee-yeul, the chief executive of Combat Ration, based in the southeastern city of Daegu.

American and South Korean officials said they would move forward with large-scale military exercises later this month that North Korea claims are a rehearsal for war.

Comparing the crisis to the Cuban missile crisis of 1962, the Tory rising star said: "Kennedy and Khrushchev showed that nuclear tensions can be unwound by measured and thoughtful action".

But legal experts in the U.S. told the news outlet that the situation is "complicated", suggesting that North Korea's current threats do not necessarily meet all the requirements that justify the USA making a pre-emptive attack in self-defense.

"Let's see what he does with Guam".

The United States and South Korea remain technically at war with North Korea after the 1950-53 Korean conflict ended with a truce, not a peace treaty.

The outpost is home to vast United States military assets at Andersen Air Base and in Apra Harbour and an installation of the THAAD missile shield system is reportedly a fixture there. So I greatly appreciate the fact that they've been able to cut our payroll for the United States.

The U.S. -South Korea exercises are an annual event, but they come as Pyongyang says it is readying a plan to fire off four Hwasong-12 missiles toward the tiny island, which is a U.S. territory and major military hub.

State media said rockets would land in waters about 18 to 25 miles from the tiny Pacific island, home to about 163,000 people - as well as a U.S. military base.

Also on Friday, North Korea's official KCNA news agency accused Washington of a "criminal attempt to impose nuclear disaster upon the Korean nation".

"Trump's bombastic rhetoric is not appropriate when we are dealing with the possibility of a nuclear war that could kill millions of people", the senator from Vermont tweeted. On Thursday, Trump fired off two tweets, asking his followers whether they can believe McConnell, after "screaming" about repeal and replacement for seven years, was unable to pass an Obamacare repeal.
