Donald Trump says he will do what is right for the United States and what is right for the world.
Earlier this week news came out that the United Kingdom, a key USA ally and NATO member, has been drawing up military plans for a potential armed conflict with North Korea.
Responding to a question, the U.S. president said it is a problem that has to be solved.
The poll found that 65 percent of Americans think Trump's comments have made the situation between the United States and North Korea worse, including 45 percent who think he's made the situation much worse.
In recent weeks, North Korea has launched two missiles over Japan and conducted its sixth nuclear test, all in defiance of U.N. Security Council resolutions, and may be fast advancing toward its goal of developing a nuclear-tipped missile capable of hitting the USA mainland. "Because that is really a world problem; that is beyond just the United States", he said.
President Trump has been hitting the North Korean regime hard in recent weeks.
Trump slammed more than two decades of USA policy toward North Korea on Twitter on Monday, saying past action to quell the crisis "didn't work". Trump's Director of the Office of Management and Budget, Mick Mulvaney, later said that the president was telegraphing with the statement that "military options are on the table".
United States president Donald Trump has "lit the wick of war" with North Korea and his country will be made to pay with "a hail of fire", a Russian news agency quoted North Korea's foreign minister as saying on Wednesday.
On Tuesday, President Trump met with his national security team and top military leaders to discuss military options against North Korea.
The poll was conducted about a week after Trump intensified rhetorical exchanges with his counterpart Kim Jong Un, dubbing him "Rocket Man" and threatening in a September 19 speech at the U.N.to "totally destroy" North Korea if the United States is forced to defend itself and its allies.
"In light of concerns about North Korea missile tests, state and federal agencies are providing information about nuclear threats and what to do in the unlikely event of a nuclear attack and radiation emergency", says the email procured by Hawaii News Now. No action by the North was observed during the 12-hour mission.
