Trump's unjustified boast about US nuke power — AP FACT CHECK

"The DPRK should cease any consideration of actions that would lead to the end of its regime and the destruction of its people".

So far, there has been no response, Republican Rep. Leonard Lance said Monday.

Cicilline said Trump "has made a dangerous situation even worse by recklessly asserting that the United States is 'locked and loaded' to bring 'fire and fury' to North Korea".

Americans have particular disdain for vacations - the idea of being seen to take a vacation is some sort of strange sign of weakness (most Americans are lucky to get a couple of weeks' holiday per year).

Donald Trump believes that exercise is a waste of energy, so takes golf carts everywhere.

Speaking to reporters from his New Jersey golf resort, Trump declined to explain precisely what he meant by the boast of military readiness.

Trump inched close to demanding the resignation of his party's senior lawmaker - who happens to be married to Trump's transportation secretary. Trump came out in opposition of the legislation.

There is also another way. There are providers that are experts in treating this disease.

"The UK stands shoulder to shoulder with the tackling this threat and many others". But do you think that's happening?

The rhetoric is vintage Trump.

"If (special counsel Robert) Mueller ever makes an impeachment referral, probably no one more important to Trump's fate than McConnell". "I feel that they will be very safe, believe me", Trump told reporters Friday, with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley at his side. Taylor says although the emergency declaration was welcome, Palm Beach County and the rest of the state still don't have enough publicly funded beds available to treat people with opioid addictions.

At a park in central Pyongyang Friday evening, young people practiced volleyball and grandparents and parents watched children on climbing frames and swings.
