How Guam's biggest daily newspaper is covering the standoff with North Korea

Tensions between the USA and North Korea ratcheted up on Friday, as President Donald Trump doubled down on military threats.

Trump clarified that statement Friday afternoon during his working vacation in New Jersey.

The president sent his tweet after North Korean state news agency, KCNA, said in a statement that "Trump is driving the situation on the Korean peninsula to the brink of a nuclear war". "Hopefully Kim Jong Un will find another path!".

Trump on Friday also retweeted images of U.S. B-1 bombers stationed in Guam.

Whether or not North Korea follows through with its threat, which is really just an announcement of the intention to create a plan to present to Kim, it has already dealt a severe blow to the US's credibility.

The scheduled 5 p.m. meeting was initially with Haley only.

Finally, Advisory Services Network LLC acquired a new position in Tesla during the first quarter valued at approximately $122,000. Tesla last hit the capital markets in March, raising close to $1 billion in convertible notes and almost $400 million in stock.

Trump reciprocated the sentiment and suggested that the stalemate between the U.S. and North Korea could have had a different outcome, had he been the president in years past.

Trump got a briefing from Labor Secretary Alex Acosta and Education Secretary Betsy DeVos about the administration's workforce development policies and apprenticeship initiative.

Commenting on the war of words between the USA and North Korea, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that the risks of a full-fledged war between the U.S. and North Korea are "very high".

During that war, Japan occupied Guam until US forces helped liberate it. Guam's called the tip of the spear for that reason.

"If somebody else uttered the exact same words that I uttered, they'd say, "What a great statement, what a wonderful statement".

US President Donald Trump on Friday warned North Korea saying that military solutions against the nuclear-armed regime were "locked and loaded" for use if Pyongyang acted "unwisely".

Earlier, President Trump said the USA military was "locked and loaded" to deal with North Korea, should the need arise, as the countries' leaders increased bellicose rhetoric this week. "While the USA president insists on ramping up the war of words, there is a decreasing chance of any diplomatic solution".

Beijing has expressed frustration with both Pyongyang's repeated nuclear and missile tests and with behavior from South Korea and the US, such as military drills, that it sees as increasing tensions.

The statement Friday does not mention any specific actions China would be willing to take, although some Chinese scholars and state media have called on Beijing to take on a shuttle diplomacy role to facilitate talks between the USA and North Korea. "Fight tonight" has long been the motto of US forces in South Korea to show they're always ready for combat on the Korean Peninsula.

"I think escalating the rhetoric is the wrong answer", Merkel added. "We are with you a thousand percent".

He said he does not want to talk about back channel talks with North Koreans as being reported by some media outlets.

"For the United States, it's the place from which you can project power into Asia in an unfettered way", Underwood says.
