State Dept. Says Trump On ‘Same Page’ As US Officials
WASHINGTON (AP) – 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.
