Trump's tough North Korea talk backed by Mattis and Tillerson

"It's fake news. Classic example". However, #Secretary Of Defense James Mattis and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson echoed the president's tough talk, suggesting that a new, coordinated message is emerging from the administration created to impress on Pyongyang the perils of proceeding on the course it has embarked on, according to the Washington Times.

"This Seb Gorka guy, or doctor, I know some people have questioned his credentials", Todd said on "Meet The Press Daily" Thursday.

En route to the US island territory of Guam early Thursday Tillerson said that a threat military force from President Donald Trump the day before didn't carry any weight.

During brief remarks to reporters on Tuesday, the president threatened nuclear strikes against the regime of Kim Jong-un if it issues threats against the United States, saying the military will retaliate with "fire and fury like the world has never seen".

"I said for reporters to force our chief diplomat, the wonderful Rex Tillerson, to give details of military options is nonsensical", Gorka said.

"These statements are irresponsible and risky, and also senselessly provide a boon to domestic North Korean propaganda, which has long sought to portray the United States as a threat to their people", the letter read. Mattis urged the regime of Kim Jong-un to "cease any consideration of actions that would lead to the end of its regime and destruction of its people".

Their arsenal of between 20 to 50 nuclear weapons could easily reach Alaska or the West coast of the USA, experts say.

North Korea responded by claiming it is preparing a plan to fire missiles at the USA territory of Guam in the western Pacific.

GORKA: I never said that secretary of state was - that's fake news 101. Gorka blamed the media for misinterpreting his comments.

She added, "I think that everyone has clearly heard what Secretary tillerson's forceful comments have been and continue to be", on North Korea.

GORKA: Absolutely, absolutely. No, I never said that, I said for reporters to force our chief diplomat, the awesome Rex Tillerson to give details of military options is nonsensical. The president's critics suggest that the words were unnecessarily provocative and might lead to war when there is still a chance for diplomacy.

"Everyone should rest easy", Gorka said, "that this administration will protect you".
