Dems urge Trump to make appointments amid North Korea crisis

Dems urge Trump to make appointments amid North Korea crisis”

The US has five priorities for the global meeting, Haley said, including United Nations reform, counterterrorism efforts against ISIS and other groups, humanitarian assistance, the Syrian conflict, and North Korea. "Hopefully there will be coordination with allies on their policy lines before he adds anything to the speech about North Korea".

In his speech Tuesday, Trump warned that the United States will "totally destroy North Korea" if it attacks the US or its allies, and Haley said the USA has been trying to work through dialogue to reach a resolution.

President Donald Trump on Sunday mocked the leader of nuclear-armed North Korea as "Rocket Man" while White House advisers said the isolated nation would face destruction unless it shelves its weapons programs and bellicose threats. "Rockets, though, we ought to probably not laugh too much about because they do represent a great threat to all". "He does seem to listen to her, at least with regards to North Korea issues", Collins said in a briefing for reporters.

US options range from everything to accepting North Korea as a nuclear power to using military force in a bid to destroy its arsenal and even oust leader Kim Jong Un.

President Donald Trump and his top national security advisers said Friday there are military options available for dealing with the North Korea crisis, despite some experts and former Trump allies saying that there are no good options for the region. Trump, who spoke by phone with South Korean President Moon Jae-in Saturday, referred to Kim on Twitter as "Rocket Man" and asserted that "long gas lines" are forming in the North because of recent United Nations sanctions on oil imports. North Korea on Sunday, May 21, fired a midrange ballistic missile, USA and South Korean officials said, in the latest weapons test for a country speeding up its development of nuclear weapons and missiles.

Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said on Sunday his country would not be bullied by the United States and would react strongly to any "wrong move" by Washington on the nuclear deal.

For the first time, he will attend the annual United Nations General Assembly in NY, which brings together leaders of the 193 member nations for a week of meetings and speeches.

"For those who have said, and been commenting about a lack of a military option, there is a military option", McMaster said.

The letter's 10 authors, including members of the Intelligence, Armed Services, and Foreign Relations committees, expressed "deep concern" that no ambassador had been nominated.

In a unanimous statement backed by China, the council said the launch was carried out just three weeks after a first missile overflew Japan and less than two weeks after Pyongyang's sixth and biggest nuclear test.

Experts have long questioned if the US could indeed attack North Korea, given its ability to cause massive casualties south of the border.

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson appeared to hold the door open for the United States to remain in the Paris climate accord "under the right conditions".

"Our shared objective is a 21st century United Nations focused more on people and less on process", Guterres said. He continues to threaten our allies.

In an interview that aired Sunday with CNN's Dana Bash on "State of the Union", Haley emphasized that Defense Secretary James Mattis has an array of options to destroy the nation of some 25 million people.

"This is not an issue between the United States and North Korea".

Mattis said after Kim tested a hydrogen bomb earlier this month that the USA would answer any threat from the North with a "massive military response, a response both effective and overwhelming". And none of us want that.

Kushner has commandeered Israeli-Palestinian issues and been active on other Middle East outreach, while Haley has been the administration's most high-profile public voice on Iran and North Korea.
