Concerns over "increasingly confrontational" North Korea dispute

Tillerson spoke to reporters Wednesday after President Donald Trump and North Korea traded escalating threats of "fire", with the North saying it was examining plans for attacking Guam. "But diplomatically you never like to have someone in a corner without a way for them to get out".

After Trump's "fire and fury" comment, Pyongyang announced it was examining plans for attacking the tiny Pacific island of Guam, home to a USA military base.

U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis issued a stark warning to North Korea on Wednesday, telling Pyongyang that it should stop any actions that would lead to the "end of its regime and the destruction of its people".

"I was admonishing the journalists of the fake news industrial complex who are forcing our chief diplomat into a position where they are demanding he makes the military case for action when that is not the mandate of the secretary of state", Gorka told host Liz Claman. "You don't just initiate a modernization plan", she said.

"We don't talk about that". "We'll see what happens". They did not detail whom specifically Trump and Kelly spoke with.

On Guam, The Mood Is Calm Despite Being In North Korea's Crosshairs
While the 162,000 Guamanians on the island rely primarily on tourism, the US military is also essential to the island's economy. A THAAD battery includes a truck-mounted launcher, tracking radar, interceptor missiles and an integrated fire control system.

"I think Americans should sleep well at night, have no concerns about this particular rhetoric of the last few days", Tillerson said.

Rubio's defense of the President's comments is at odds with the opinions of some of his colleagues in the Senate - including Republicans - who criticized Trump for the harsh rhetoric.

"I think the President just wanted to be clear to the North Korean regime on the U.S. unquestionable ability to defend itself [.] and its allies and I think it was important that he deliver that message to avoid any miscalculation on their part".

Asked if Tillerson would reject the assertion that he shouldn't speak on military tensions surrounding North Korea, Nauert said, "our Secretary has been very clear, as has Secretary Mattis, that our diplomatic and military means are both strong and capable and in the face of the threats that we face against the DPRK or other nations". The Defense Department and Energy Department spent billions of dollars on refurbishing the arsenal and bringing aging nuclear weapons up to modern capabilities as well as guidance systems and related technologies. He's the fourth in line to the presidency.
