In the news wrap Thursday, President Trump pivoted from words of praise to threats of military force against North Korea. The president suggested that if Kim Jong Un does not make a deal, he could meet a fate similar to former Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi, who was killed in a U.S.-backed rebellion. Also, Gina Haspel was confirmed as CIA director by the Senate in a 54-45 vote.
