Yeah, put a pin in that.
The good news is we may not have to argue about the 2016 election much longer, since a 2018 is being threatened by cazh talk of nuclear war between Trump and Kim Jong Un ...
In a statement issued from his allegedly working vacation, delivered at his Bedminster, New Jersey, golf club, Trump belched:
North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States. They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen. [Kim Jong Un] has been very threatening beyond a normal state, and as I said, they will be met with fire and fury and, frankly, power, the likes of which this world has never seen before.
Then he blithely went back about his business, and I do mean his business.
Trump's blunt talk led to a retort from North Korea, stating it is looking at hitting Guam pre-emptively.
North Korea has a history of empty, macho, chest-beating threats (which, to be fair, sound exactly like the one Trump made today), but it has also apparently now been able to create a mini nuke warhead it can squeeze into long-range missiles, so they should not be taken lightly.
At some point, someone is going to go for it.
If they are able to strike the U.S., it would be the West Coast, which Trump would probably love since they didn't vote for him, and a strike would give him some much-needed support in the U.S — as well as cover to then annihilate North Korea. As for South Korea, they'd be screwed.
This is not going to go away, nor end well, and it's one case where Trump isn't even the worst player in the scenario.
