State Dept. Responds to Criticism of Trump Admin's Rhetoric on N. Korea

Whether its the White House, the State Department, the Department of Defence, we are speaking with one voice.

Nauert said the entire administration is not only the same page, but the world spoke with one voice to North Korea when the United Nations Security Council imposed its newest sanctions on the rogue country.

A national defense analyst with the Family Research Council is doubtful the latest sanctions imposed on North Korea by the United Nations will motivate the rogue regime to abandon its nuclear missile program. "What is alarming, two ICBM tests in less than a month, two nuclear tests that took place past year". She then broadened the discussion to the entire world.

ICBM (Inter-Continental Ballistic Missile) has increased the reach of North Korean projectiles to the American mainland.

Nauert said Trump's remarks fit into a "pressure campaign" to force North Korea to back off from its nuclear development and further missile tests. "Until something happens that would bring them into the equation, I don't see that they're going to help us".

And Maginnis says history has shown North Korea always finds a way around sanctions.

On Tuesday, Trump told reporters at his gulf resort in New Jersey that North Korea would face an unprecedented level of "fire and fury" if it continues to threaten the United States.

"Look, the president is sending a strong message to North Korea in the kind of language that North Korea understands".

"The secretary has talked in the past about how the president is a very effective spokesman", Nauert said.

She also emphasised that there are lots of ways to get through to Kim Jong-un and his regime. "Hopefully we will never have to use this power, but there will never be a time that we are not the most powerful nation in the world!"
