WATCH: State Department says it agrees with Trump’s fiery threat to North Korea
WASHINGTON — The State Department says President Donald Trump is “on the same page” with the rest of U.S. government with his fiery threat to North Korea.
State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert says the White House, State Department and Pentagon are all in agreement. She says the world, too, is speaking with once voice.
Nauert says the pressure by the U.S. and others on Pyongyang “is working.”
Nauert says Secretary of State Rex Tillerson spoke to Trump for about an hour after Trump warned Tuesday of “fire and fury” if North Korea escalated its threats.
The comments came as a new report said Pyongyang’s nuclear program is progressing.
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson says he doesn’t believe there is “any imminent threat” from North Korea, including to the U.S. territory of Guam.
Tillerson says that “Americans should sleep well at night.” He says that they should “have no concerns about this particular rhetoric of the last few days.”
