North Korea reacts to Trump comment

North Korea reacts to Trump comment”

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: The first time they've heard it like they heard it, and frankly the people who were questioning that statement, was it too tough?

The industry in the US is in decline. "We're going to save a lot of money".

But the tension continued Friday when North Korea said Trump was "driving the situation on the Korean peninsula to the brink of a nuclear war" with his continued rhetoric.

Trump's statistic thus does not really tell you much about Obama's handling of opioids.

So if it just stays right where it is, the threat being made that military action by the North Koreans would be met with fire and fury - you know, and we're leveraging that in order to make important progress on the diplomacy as well as the economic pressure, which is key. "Hopefully Kim Jong Un will find another path!" "He does something in Guam, it will be an event the likes of which nobody has seen before".

"You'll see, you'll see. And he'll see", he said.

The emergency declaration reflects an apparent change in thinking in the administration and could have major implications for the Ohio Valley, which has some of the highest addiction and overdose rates in the country. "However, right now, Secretary Tillerson, Ambassador Haley, you can see the American effort is diplomatically led, it has diplomatic traction, it is gaining diplomatic results", Mattis said. The president has been in this back-and-forth, a kind of public feud with the Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell.

CORNISH: Let's start with the comments on North Korea.

In Florida, the emergency declaration issued in May enabled Gov. Rick Scott to quickly allocate some $27 million in federal funds for drug treatment and prevention.

But UN Secretary General António Guterres hinted that Trump's remarks risked derailing the diplomatic process. As the president said, drug charges fell by 23 percent, with 24,638 defendants in fiscal 2016, compared with 32,062 in fiscal year 2011.

"The Security Council passed a resolution unanimously over the weekend".

Kentucky, Ohio, and West Virginia have some of the nation's highest rates of overdose deaths due to heroin, synthetic opioids such as fentanyl, and abuse of prescription opioids such as oxycodone. Under the "Smart on Crime Initiative", prosecutors were told to focus finite resources on more serious drug cases and leave low-level offenders to state prosecutors.

The North Korea threat has been a foreign policy priority for the Trump administration since it took office in January, but it has taken center stage since Pyongyang test fired two intercontinental ballistic missiles last month.

GREG ALLEN, BYLINE: The states that have declared emergencies on opioids show the national scope of the crisis.

But it also said that if the U.S. and South Korea took a first strike against North Korea, China should intervene.

"The data don't specifically break out opioid prosecutions, so there's no way to know what happened on that front", said John Gramlich, who wrote the Pew report.
