Trump aide says Tillerson's role is diplomatic, not military

"We respectfully but firmly urge you to do everything in your power to ensure that President Trump and other administration officials understand the importance of speaking and acting with the utmost caution and restraint on this delicate issue", the letter said.

While the President has threatened "fire and fury", and on Thursday added that his comments perhaps hadn't been tough enough, Tillerson has repeatedly said his interest is in applying "peaceful pressure" to get Pyongyang to agree to talks.

North Korea has announced a detailed plan to launch a salvo of ballistic missiles toward the U.S. Pacific territory of Guam, a major military hub and home to U.S. bombers.

"I never said that - that's fake news 101", Gorka said during an appearance on Fox News. "Secretary Tillerson is the chief diplomat of the United States, and it is not his portfolio to handle those issues". "Our policy across the administration is the same", she said. Humphrey said the escalating crisis with North Korea forces Congress to act.

State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert responded to Gorka's comments during a press briefing on Thursday afternoon, telling reporters that Tillerson's statements should, in fact, be heeded.

Arsenal had seen nearly 75% of the ball in the first 20 minutes and Welbeck had Arsenal's best chance since Lacazette's opener. He then scored again in the 56th minute to restore a 3-2 lead for the Foxes. 3-3, min. 83, Ramsey .

Gorka appears to have just put the ball back in North Korea's court, and that ball may just be a ball of fire if this kind of rhetoric continues.

But back home, there is great concern over the tough talk from Trump. "I think the president just wanted to be clear to the North Korean regime on the United States unquestionable ability to defend itself, will defend itself and its allies".

"What they've been doing and what they've been getting away with is a tragedy and it can't be allowed", Trump said. "I think that's why the rhetoric coming out of Pyongyang is beginning to become louder and more threatening". What do you think about these latest comments from Gorka?

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson stressed diplomacy and said there was no immediate threat of danger، while Defense Secretary James Mattis، a former military general، said North Korea risked "the end of its regime and the destruction of its people" if it did not "stand down". "He's a cabinet secretary, he's fourth in line to the presidency, he carries a big stick".
