Yesterday the world learned that North Korea’s nuclear capability is further along than anyone knew.
The Washington Post reported the Nork’s have produced miniaturized nuclear warheads that fit inside their intercontinental ballistic missiles.
Then, the rogue nation threatened the U.S. territory of Guam.
President Donald Trump responded swiftly, saying that any more threats would be met with “fire and fury like the world has never seen.”
It was a bold statement from a decisive leader. However, Arizona Sen. John McCain isn’t feeling it.
From The Hill:
“I don’t know what he’s saying and I’ve long ago given up trying to interpret what he says,” McCain said of Trump during an interview with a local Arizona radio station first reported by NBC.
“That kind of rhetoric, I’m not sure how it helps.”
McCain said the U.S. risks getting into a serious confrontation with North Korea, and invoked former President Teddy Roosevelt’s famous “big stick” policy.
“In other words, the old walk softly but carry a big stick, Teddy Roosevelt’s saying, which I think is something that should’ve applied because all it’s going to do is bring us closer to a serious confrontation,” McCain warned. “I think this is very, very, very serious.”

I don’t know, Senator.
After watching the previous administration stand by and do nothing while Lil’ Kim ran wild, I think it’s refreshing to see an alpha male take charge of the situation.
Trump is letting North Korea (and the world) know that America will not be bullied.
Time to get on board already, John.
Stop trying to derail everything this president is doing like you did with Obamacare.
