Trump's mannerism suggests he rehearsed this remark and it was not off the cuff. It sounds like a negotiating posture.

Can't anybody take his phone away from him and stop him from making unprepared statements on the golf course? I know he spends the day tethered to Twitter in his recliner while watching ten TVs, but come on, he needs to at least try and act like the leader of the free world. He's obviously not listening to the intelligence community or diplomatic professionals.

When N K launches one of those missiles, they are putting on their boats, at a US Aircraft carrier, what do you think is going to happen ?

It wasn't unprepared. He had been working with someone on the "fire and fury" remark. He said it twice emphatically. It's a bluff.

Which President has been able to handle the North Korea situation? The fact that NK has developed its missile technology to be able to hit the USA and may have miniaturized a warhead to be carried on the missile suggests that the policies of at least the last two Presidents have been an utter failure.

So what do we do next? More 'engagement' which gives NK even more time to develop its offensive capability?

All sounds very nice in 140 characters on Twitter, but he's the President of the United States now and it's obvious he's in way over his head.
To you, diplomacy means appeasement. Obama's gone----that's no longer our policy.

I keep seeing our news talk about whether or not NK can hit America; but what are all of NK's submarines doing? I see them testing missiles; I presume that we have them on a short leash? I would also presume that NK's navy night be one of our first targets.

I'd bet Kim Jong Boob would kick soft, tub-of-goo Trump's elderly butt in a one-on-one fight in about 8 seconds.

Wow. Too bad America doesn't have your talent in this situation. Your observation skills are remarkable.
