Tillerson Urges Calm as Trump Trades Escalating Threats With North Korea

The Latest: Japan says it could shoot down NKorean missile

Florida Republican Senator Marco Rubio was in Jacksonville on Wednesday and strongly defended President Donald Trump's handling of the North Korean crisis. "We either do nothing, go to war or negotiate a stand down, and so far we've seen no sign that they're willing to negotiate". Hours earlier, North Korea's army had said in a statement it was exploring plans for attacking the tiny USA territory, which houses US military bases and is a common refueling stop for USA government aircraft traversing the Pacific Ocean.

Later in the day, on Fox News, Gorka said that he had been "admonishing the journalist" who, he said, had asked the top U.S. diplomat to make "the military case for action, when that is not the mandate of the Secretary of State".

"I was admonishing the journalist or the fake news complex that are forcing our chief diplomat into a position where they're demanding he makes the military case for action when that is not the mandate of the secretary of state", Gorka added.

"You should listen to the president; the idea that Secretary Tillerson is going to discuss military matters is simply nonsensical", Gorka said.

Rubio also had a warning for North Korea.

The acquisition was disclosed in a document filed with the Securities & Exchange Commission, which is available at this link . One equities research analyst has rated the stock with a hold rating and four have given a buy rating to the company's stock.

State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert responded to Gorka's comments during a press briefing on Thursday afternoon, telling reporters that Tillerson's statements should, in fact, be heeded.

"This is being put together incrementally and of all the countries and all the issues you deal with، North Korea is not the one to be kludging together statements by the president and cabinet secretaries because the risk of miscalculation is so high،" Medeiros said by telephone from Tokyo، Japan. "We never do. I don't talk about it", Trump told reporters when asked about a preemptive strike.

"What the president is doing is sending a strong message to North Korea in language that Kim Jong Un can understand, because he doesn't seem to understand diplomatic language", Tillerson said.

"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.

U.S. intelligence reports claiming that North Korea has miniaturized a nuclear bomb to fit on top of intercontinental ballistic missiles capable of reaching the United States have prompted Trump to threaten massive retaliation if Pyongyang attacks. What do you think about these latest comments from Gorka? It's the so-called "Madman theory" that says you want your enemies to think you're capable of anything.
