The United States is now in a terrifying amount of danger thanks to the incompetent, inflammatory idiot in the White House.
After Trump made several threats and warnings to North Korea, the nation has responded by attempting to launch a missile as part of a test that fortunately failed and “blew up almost immediately.” South Korea’s Office of the Joint Chiefs of Staff reported:
“The North attempted to launch an unidentified missile from near the Sinpo region this morning but it is suspected to have failed.”
Just recently, NBC News claimed that if North Korea performed a nuclear weapons test, the U.S. might respond with a preemptive strike.
“The attempted launch comes just one day after the North held a massive parade to display is military might, including what experts said included new capabilities for long-range intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs).”
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson responded to the launch and said:
“North Korea launched yet another intermediate range ballistic missile. The United States has spoken enough about North Korea. We have no further comment.”
While all of this is going on, Trump is in Florida golfing at Mar-a-Lago, leaving his Vice President, Mike Pence to head to Seoul in an attempt to clean up this mess and de-escalate tensions.
This entire situation is terrifying, as Trump has previously warned that if China did not get North Korea under control and handle the situation, “the U.S., with its allies, will!”
The White House has stated that Trump has put the North “on notice”, and considering just how bomb-happy Trump has become after his poorly planned and unapproved attack on Syria, it’s safe to say that the unhinged POTUS cannot be trusted. It’s entirely possible that Trump will throw the United States into nuclear war.
