A senior administration official who deals with the Korea issue said the "fire and fury" comment, which was Trump's strongest warning yet for North Korea and which he delivered to reporters in New Jersey, was "unplanned and spontaneous". "Is this part of diplomatic strategy, or did you find those remarks to be unhelpful?" the reporter asked.

Trump's unexpected remarks prompted North Korea to respond by saying it was considering plans for a missile strike on the U.S. Pacific territory of Guam.

This is why it's quite ironic that in an effort to intimidate North Korea, President Trump seems to be telling some tall tails of his own.

"It is the job of Secretary Mattis, the Secretary of Defense, to talk about the military options, and he has done so unequivocally", Gorka continued.

Steny Hoyer, the No. 2 Democrat in the U.S. House of Representatives, said Trump's threat to North Korea "is reckless and shows a serious lack of judgment". "It's just not possible", he said. They did not detail whom specifically Trump and Kelly spoke with. "He 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".

He insisted that nothing has changed over the past 24 hours that would make a military response to the dispute more likely adding that "the American people should sleep well at night". "I think the President just wanted to be clear to the North Korean regime that the United States has an unquestionable ability to defend itself, will defend itself and its allies and I think it was important that he deliver that message to avoid any miscalculation on their part". The Defense Department and Energy Department spent billions of dollars on refurbishing the arsenal and bringing aging nuclear weapons up to modern capabilities as well as guidance systems and related technologies.

"You should listen to the president; the idea that Secretary Tillerson is going to discuss military matters is simply nonsensical", Gorka, who reportedly does not have a security clearance in the White House, said of the nation's top diplomat. And should be paid attention to. He's the fourth in line to the presidency.
