Pyongyang reacted by claiming it was "carefully examining" a plan to strike Guam - an island territory in Micronesia and the site of a U.S. military base. North Korea expressed outrage at the U.N. vote, vowing to launch "thousands-fold" revenge against the United States.

"True generational differences, no question that they're generational differences here, but it wasn't that long ago that they were writing songs about Harry Truman asking, 'Harry, where are you?" Thanks so much for your time this morning.

The decision will not only take action against alleged Chinese violations of US companies' intellectual property rights, but could also be perceived as an attempt by the USA government to crank up the pressure on Beijing to rein in North Korea. "And I just started "The Handmaid's Tale"!"

As with seen perhaps most notably at a CNN debate in 2015, when conservative talk radio host Hugh Hewitt asked Mr. Trump about the nuclear triad, that is the USA strategy of having nukes on land, in the air, and at sea.

France is a member of the Security Council, which approved fresh sanctions on North Korea this month for its recent intercontinental ballistic missile testing. And my fear is the North Koreans have watched Donald Trump.

Sen. Lindsey Graham and Pres. Donald Trump have had their differences but on Friday, the senator took to social media to defend the president amid rising tensions between the USA and North Korea.

"The one ray of hope here is that I'm not sure whether to believe Trump's nuclear saber-rattling, and neither are you", Colbert explained, referring to new polls showing broad distrust of the president. "You'll get us all killed", said Colbert.

But unnamed sources told the AP that the talks have done little to quell concerns about North Korea's escalation of its missile and nuclear program, though the sources also suggested that negotiation could still be possible, if Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un publicly choose negotiations instead of threats.

"Today's news makes clear that much more than these sanctions is required to protect US interests", said Jay Lefkowitz, a former USA special envoy on human rights in North Korea.

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe says he will do everything he can to protect the Japanese people as tensions escalate over North Korean plans to send missiles flying over Japan toward Guam.

"The North Koreans have been who they are for months", he continued. "The potential for infrastructure improvement and job creation will be limitless and, to use an old chestnut, we'll be putting the "new" back into 'nuclear'". So they responded to the president's threat about not making any more threats with another threat.

President Trump, in some ways, has been more flexible in his approach to North Korea than President Barack Obama. "I'm sure everything will work out fine".
