Trump's challenge in dealing with North Korea comes in the wake of recent polls that show the his approval rating at home dipping to new lows, even among Republicans.

"He is sick of mind, impetuous, arrogant, belligerent and unsafe", Gordon Humphrey, who represented New Hampshire from 1979 to 1990, said in a letter to his state's members of Congress obtained by Manchester ABC station WMUR.

"Our country & civilians are vulnerable today because Barack Obama did not believe in national missile defense".

"I think he's trying to put China and North Korea on notice that the game has changed،" Graham said of Trump's threat of hitting North Korea with "fire and fury".

The president also retweeted "The Five", a Fox News program, which quoted host Jesse Watters as saying that Trump "being unpredictable is a big asset".

It tweeted on August 4 that 61 percent thought Trump was better, compared to 39 percent who thought Obama was better. The last thing that China wants is to see North Korea destroyed by a conflict of its own making.

Fresh off of his past couple of days of threats against North Korea, he today suggested this his threat to give North Korea "fire and fury like the world has never seen" earlier this week did not go far enough, and that the United States needs to pick up its rhetoric even more. "I think the president was doing this as a means to get people's attention, including the Chinese", he added. Is there any reason President Trump's threats are more disturbing to you?

Members of the Florida delegation are weighing in on the increased tensions between the United States and North Korea as the communist regime in charge of that Asian nation continues to advance its nuclear ambitions and threatened to launch weapons against Guam.

On Tuesday، Trump said the U.S. would rain "fire and fury" on North Korea، which some said could "only be interpreted" as a nuclear threat. "But he is not a normal president, and to many of his base, the fact that he is so disruptive is something they like". "We do not tell people in advance, if they are adversaries, what we are going to do". Yun and North Korean diplomat Pak Song II negotiated the release of imprisoned American college student Otto Warmbier in June.

CHANG: Well, on the other hand, the USA has tried more nuanced, diplomatic talk for years with North Korea. Thousands of USA soldiers are stationed in South Korea and Japan. North Korea doesn't need another nuclear power for that. "I accept that characterization of the efforts of the United States over the last two decades". Let's find a way to move diplomacy.
