(SBN) – As President Trump heads to Texas for a look at storm damage, the White House has released a statement to what’s been dubbed a “major provocation” by North Korea, as it test-launched another intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM), over Japan Monday.
“The world has received North Korea’s latest message loud and clear: this regime has signaled its contempt for its neighbors, for all members of the United States and for minimum standards of acceptable international behavior.”
The statement continues that “All options are on the table.” Meantime, Trump signaled that he was motivated by ‘TV ratings’ in the controversial pardon of a divisive Arizona sheriff, and the President fails to pointedly say that Russia is a ‘security threat’ during a joint WH press conference with the Finnish president.
