Tillerson Tries To Calm Americans, Says North Korea Is Not An ‘Imminent Threat’

Tillerson Tries To Calm Americans Says North Korea Is Not An Imminent ThreatDuring a scheduled refueling stop in Guam on Wednesday, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson told Americans that there is not thought to be “any imminent threat” from North Korea. “Americans should sleep well at night,” Tillerson added in a calm contrast to President Trump’s threat of raining “fire and fury” down on North Korea on Tuesday. Addressing Trump’s comments, Tillerson said the president was “sending a strong message to North Korea in language that Kim Jong Un can understand, because he doesn’t seem to understand diplomatic language. I think the president just wanted to be clear to the North Korean regime on the U.S.’s unquestionable ability to defend itself […] and its allies.”
