"President Trump's threat to rain down "fire and fury" on North Korea is like pouring gasoline on a fire", Humphrey wrote. He added that, "The great leaders I've seen don't threaten unless they're ready to act, and I'm not sure President Trump is ready to act".
North Korea responded by claiming it is preparing a plan to fire missiles at the USA territory of Guam in the western Pacific.
Gorka said that Tillerson wasn't qualified to make that comment.
"You should listen to the president; the idea that Secretary Tillerson is going to discuss military matters is simply nonsensical", Gorka said in a recording shared with The Washington Post. "Our policy across the administration is the same", she said.
"North Korea poses a serious threat to the US and all options should be on the table to protect the American people", Nelson said.
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.
On Friday, Trump said a military option against North Korea is "locked and loaded", ratcheting up his war of words against the Asian nation. "We never do. I don't talk about it", Trump told reporters when asked about a preemptive strike. "Sooner or later someone should take them seriously", Gorka said, according to a part of the interview reported by Buzzfeed.
"What the president is doing is sending a strong message to North Korea in language that Kim Jong-Un would understand, because he doesn't seem to understand diplomatic language", he said. "Instead, the United States must face down this threat by leading with a firm, thoughtful strategy that unifies the worldwide community and engages China against North Korea's unacceptable aggression".
The State Department spokeswoman said she wouldn't comment directly on Gorka's remarks, but noted that Tillerson and Mattis have a close working relationship.
GORKA: I never said that secretary of state was - that's fake news 101. He's a Cabinet secretary.
GORKA: Absolutely, absolutely. No, I never said that, I said for reporters to force our chief diplomat, the fantastic Rex Tillerson to give details of military options is nonsensical.
