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".

Security Council took their actions where - these were massive sanctions. And it's really only - it's been less than a week since the U.N.

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".

Mourinho: Manchester United in talks to re-sign Ibrahimovic
Mourinho does not necessarily buy into the idea that more goals are needed, just a fairer spread to help them win more matches. He added: "If the remaining 25 per cent doesn't arrive by August 31, I will not moan".

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".
