Rep. David Cicilline (D-R.I.), a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, made the call in a letter to Speaker Paul Ryan as tensions escalated over North Korea's nuclear and missile threats.
Trump dialed up the rhetoric early Friday, tweeting that the US military is "locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely". As China reissues its calls for calm between the U.S. and North Korea and warns Donald Trump not to "play with fire". "While force remains on the table, this path where the global community increases pressure on North Korea must be tried first", said Soderberg.
Spinnaker reached out to Congressman Ron DeSantis, the current representative for District 6, the seat Soderberg is running for, but didn't receive a response by the time of publication.
"All the people are rising up across the country to retaliate against the USA thousands of times", said a newspaper.
"This man will not get away with what he is doing", Trump told reporters.
Trump has long vowed to pressure China to rein in North Korea, particularly its rapidly advancing nuclear and missile programs. It said Wednesday that plans for a strike near the island would be complete by mid-August.
On Friday, the Defense Ministry said it was deploying four of Japan's surface-to-air Patriot interceptors in western Japan to respond to a possible risk of fragments falling from missiles.
US President Donald Trump and his French counterpart pledged in a phone call Saturday to work to denuclearise North Korea, but Trump again spoke of possible "military measures" if other steps fail.
Trump has stood by his bellicose rhetoric on North Korea, saying leader Kim Jong Un "will truly regret it and he will regret it fast" if he issues an overt threat or attacks Guam or a U.S. ally. Trump's comments, however, do not appear to be backed by significant military mobilization on either side of the Pacific, and an important, quiet diplomatic channel remains open.
