Trump touts power of United States nuclear arsenal amid N”

Tillerson spoke to reporters Wednesday after President Donald Trump and North Korea traded escalating threats of "fire", with the North saying it was examining plans for attacking Guam. "You've got to be sure you can do what you say you're going to do", McCain said in a radio interview.

North Korea hit back hours later, saying it is ready to carry out an attack near the U.S. island of Guam.

The major US averages ended down about 0.2 percent overnight, with the Dow snapping a 10-day winning streak, as Trump's remarks added to concerns about rising tensions between the USA and North Korea.

Mattis said in a statement that the United States and its allies would win any arms race or conflict with North Korea.

Gorka's statements come amid confusion about the administration's policy toward North Korea after a series of statements that have been dramatically different in tone and have sent starkly different messages. She says he "ticks off" North Korea.

"We don't talk about that".

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". "We'll see what happens".

"They've been doing this to our country for a long time, for many years", Trump said. "I think the President just wanted to be clear to the North Korean regime that the USA has an unquestionable ability to defend itself, will defend itself and its allies and I think it was important that he deliver that message to avoid any miscalculation on their part".

"Americans should sleep well - have no concerns about this particular rhetoric of the last few days", Tillerson said in response to the question about Trump's "fire and fury" comments.

White House Deputy Assistant to the President Sebastian Gorka retreated Thursday from remarks implying it was "nonsensical" for Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to discuss the likelihood of military action against North Korea. The Defense Department and Energy Department spent billions of dollars on refurbishing the arsenal and bringing aging nuclear weapons up to modern capabilities as well as guidance systems and related technologies. And should be paid attention to. "He carries a big stick".
