While US President Donald Trump says the US is "locked and loaded" if North Korea "acts unwisely", Pyongyang accused Trump of driving the Korean Peninsula to the brink of nuclear war. "You have this guy making bellicose threats against somebody else who has very little to lose over there".

Trump doubled down Thursday, saying his previous bold statements might not have been "strong enough" for Kim Jong Un, whose regime announced a plan to fire four missiles near the USA island territory of Guam in response to the White House's bold rhetoric. "Well, he's acting more responsible than this guy is".

Kisner confident atop the PGA leaderboard
Rahm shot 70, and McIlroy " a two-time victor at Quail Hollow who lost to Fowler in a playoff there in 2012 " had a 72. McIlroy, 28, could become only the third player to win five majors before turning 30, joining Nicklaus and Woods.

There were murmurs of agreement in the room before Ellison described what would need to happen before a "missile launch" become a reality. "If you don't want to be a deer in the headlights, start calling for diplomacy immediately".

Ellison then backtracked the remark, telling a reporter for The Washington Post immediately after leaving the panel, "That was one of those I wish I'd not said". "It's tailor-made for somebody to misuse".

Mega Millions, Powerball, Hoosier Lotto reaching high prize amounts
The odds of winning a jackpot were abysmal - one in 258.9 million for Mega Millions , and one in 292.2 million for Powerball. This increased jackpot was the fifth largest in the game's history and here's a look at the numbers: 23, 33, 53, 56, 58, 06.

And just days before that, the president promised to unleash "fire and fury" on the tin-pot country, should dictator Kim Jong Un continue to make unwelcome advances against the United States. And so, what we need to do is try to tamper down this crisis.

Ellison's comment about Trump and Kim drew quick fire from the Republican National Committee. Ellison, a Minnesota Democrat, later retracted that but still said he thinks Trump is "irresponsible".

Brushing off Putin, Trump says fewer diplomats saves money
Trump added that the White House is "drawing documents now to so attest" to the opioid epidemic's status as a national emergency. The president has been in this back-and-forth, a kind of public feud with the Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell.
