United States to do everything to avoid nuclear war with North Korea

United States to do everything to avoid nuclear war with North Koreaā€¯

Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin is expected to brief reporters later Thursday. "This is not about Republicans or Democrats".

Mnuchin said that, like in any office, managers and bosses can set rules for decorum without infringing on employees' Constitutional rights.

Tapper reminded Mnuchin that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and NFL owners have supported their players' right to free speech, and then asked why this was a fight the president wanted to have. "This is about respect for the military, the first responders", Mnuchin said.

According to commentators, Mnuchin is the latest top official to offer reassurance following U.S. president Donald Trump's increasing tension with North Korean threats, according to Xinhua. Former NFL player Anquan Boldin retorted President Donald Trump's statements saying that player's protests have nothing to do with "disrespecting this country".

White House Director of Legislative Affairs Marc Short made similar remarks in an interview on NBC's "Meet the Press."

"There are ways to express concerns about social causes, Chuck".

"I've already been approached by members of (South) Korea's National Assembly to put in place tactical nuclear weapons by the United States on the South Korean Peninsula", he said. "And if the owners want to get rid of them, they should be allowed to get rid of them'".

The topic has exploded over the last two days, ever since Trump, in a Friday speech to supporters in Alabama, criticized National Football League players who have used pre-game ceremonies to speak out against police mistreatement of African-Americans and racism in American society more generally.

Mnuchin added that Trump has already asserted "all the options are on the table", and "has lots of alternatives that have been presented to him, and he'll make the decisions at the time". "So I think as a league, we need to stand together and show that we're all about uniting one another, and not the divisive rhetoric that is coming out of the mouth of the president".

"I am beginning to think that in govt, you are stupid as a rock", Lieu wrote.
