"The only war that's worse than one that's intended is one that's unintended. This is not the stuff to be tweeting about."
Trump's temperament has been a concern since before he was even elected a year ago, but those worries have only increased since he took office.
Whether it's our allies in Europe or our adversaries in Iran, Russia, and North Korea, the United States has become viewed as a weak and untrustworthy laughingstock under Donald Trump.
"I would love if they'd support HR-669, which is legislation I've introduced with Sen. Ed Markey, that prevents the president from launching a nuclear-first strike without congressional approval."
When asked by reporters what he meant by “calm before the storm,” Trump said, “You’ll find out,” before being whisked away.
Trump's tough talk is fooling no one, especially not the North Koreans, and Americans are feeling less safe as a result.
When Sec. of State Rex Tillerson was asked what the US will do if North Korea detonates a hydrogen bomb in the Pacific, he uttered six words that should scare the American people. The ultimate decision to launch a nuclear war will be up to Donald Trump.
Trump's reckless determination to tear up the legacy of his far superior predecessor – Barack Obama – may make him feel better, but it's putting actual lives at risk.
This is just more evidence that Trump admires the tactics of authoritarian figures like Kim Jong-un.
Clinton laid out a rational plan to solve the North Korea threat and said Trump is being "played" by Kim Jong-un.
Trump can continue to threaten to invade whichever country he's mad at on a given day, but he'll be doing so without the support his own party, the American people or the international community.
Trump's increasingly dangerous and hostile North Korea rhetoric appears to be rooted in a single Washington Post report.
"If we have to, we'll go to war," Graham told a South Carolina CBS affiliate.
After eight years of an administration who took these issues seriously, we now have a president who loses his cool at the slightest provocation.
Facts are facts: Barack Obama was a reassuring adult in an increasingly dangerous world, and Donald Trump is a man-sized toddler pushing the world closer to nuclear war.
It’s difficult to find an issue that Trump approaches in a thoughtful or knowledgeable way, but the idea of winging it when it comes to nuclear war is stunning and dangerous – even for this president.
Having failed to make Trump popular in any other way, the White House is admitting that they are trying to provoke a new Cuban missile crisis with N. Korea.
After Sec. of State Rex Tillerson told the American people that they could sleep well at night:
There is more to foreign policy than showing off America's ships. Hopefully, the commander-in-chief will soon realize that.
Trump wanted to remind everybody in the room that he was, in fact, still president, before ditching the meeting and letting the "grown ups" deal with the national security crisis.
