The US president in an interview made this remark, though he declined to comment on whether he had a talk with the North Korean leader in recent times or not. "Donald Trump is the last person who should possess the nuclear codes and the power to start a nuclear conflagration".
But asked whether he had spoken to Kim, Trump responded: "I don't want to comment on it".
Jones, who also supplies the USA military with potassium iodide and is the top distributor of the FDA-approved drug in the US, typically tries to keep a six months supply handy. His products have been flying off the shelves, forcing him to order more and more.
Indeed, North Koreans see the US-ROK exercises as anything but routine; to the contrary, there was a sense among them that the Pentagon has launched the contact reconnaissance phase of a military operation it is planning to undertake on the peninsula.
Pyongyang and the United States have engaged in a war of words amid the North's continued testing of its nuclear and ballistic-missile programs, which have been banned by United Nations resolutions.
North Korea supposedly extended an olive branch in the speech to its southern neighbor.
Trump has expressed cautious optimism about the talks, and the USA and South Korea have agreed to halt annual military exercises, a major irritant to North Korea, until the end of the Paralympics in mid-March.
"A lot of good talks are going on - a lot of good energy". Trump said on Twitter on Tuesday. "That's not thumbs up or thumbs down to Trump, that's just the fact his tweets are driving our sales at the moment".
Trump's statements on NAFTA negotiations are similarly ambiguous. "It should be the last option - and heaven forbid we have to use it". "As tensions heat up, you get more and more people becoming alert and aware of what's going in the world", he said. "In return, this will lead to more sales", Lynch added. "But one with nuclear weapons - for real - at his disposal".
The North Korean leader claimed that he has a button on his desk to order a nuclear strike against the US, but for Kim to field a reliable nuclear deterrent against the USA and its allies, additional weapons testing will be undoubtedly be required. Yet he has done so without surrendering any of North Korea's nuclear ambitions.
Trump appears to be intent on thawing relations with North Korea for now, amid the upcoming 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea next month, where North Korea has agreed to send athletes and a delegation to participate. It announced it had postponed its joint military exercises with the United States, an annual event that North Korea believes encroaches on their sovereignty, earlier this month.
At the same time, U.S. troops are reportedly training in the kind of tunnel warfare - and buying the specific kinds of gear - necessary to wage war in North Korea.
His despotic regime's state-controlled Rodong Sinmun newspaper wrote that Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House 'foretells Trump's political demise'. This is good for the prepper industry, but perhaps not so good for America's collective mental health.
It would be a major departure from the Trump administration's past policy to engage in direct talks with North Korea's leader.
