Diplomats Fear Trump Is Tweeting the United States into War

  • US President Donald Trump addresses the UN General Assembly in New York

The provocative tweets wasted no time in blaming all previous U.S. Presidents for allowing the Democratic People's Republic of North Korea to build a nuclear missile program.

Recently in an interview to media, President Trump had said "he inherited a mess" and North Korea nuclear issue should have been handled 25 years ago and also termed the Obama-era Iran pact not in United States interests.

On Saturday, he fired off two tweets: "Presidents and their administrations have been talking to North Korea for 25 years, agreements made and massive amounts of money paid... hasn't worked, agreements violated before the ink was dry, makings fools of USA negotiators".

"There is one thing the US Army can do and that is you have got to be ready to ensure that we have military options that our President can employ if needed", Mattis said in a speech at an annual US Army conference. Trump did not give specifics about what the "one thing" might be. "I think this one's the worst of the group - but they started doing what they were doing", Trump said, referring first to then North Korean leader Kim Jong-il and then his son and current leader Kim Jong-un. In a recent poll by The Washington Post and ABC, only 37% respondents said they trusted Trump a "great deal" or a "good amount" to take a responsible decision on North Korea, compared to 72% who said they trusted the military leaders. When asked, he simply said: "You will find out".

Aaron Finch off the mark, Glenn Maxwell off the mark as the two score seven runs from Jasprit Bumrah's first over. Aussie opener Aaron Finch, who put up a strong fight, also went down facing the Indian bowling attack.

Trump, who made the comment to reporters at the White House, did not elaborate. "Just a total mess".

Not stopping there, Donald Trump made a cryptic remark that appeared to hint at a potential military strike. As expected, North Korea wasn't pleased, which resulted in Trump sounding off on social media. "Policy didn't work!" Trump tweeted early on Monday morning.

The tension between North Korea and the United States seems never-ending.

In Pyongyang on Saturday, Kim was telling his officials that North Korea's nuclear weapons were a "powerful deterrent" and that the Workers' Party of Korea would "victoriously conclude the standoff with the U.S.".
