Elected Officials Condemn Trump’s Nuclear Threats Against North Korea

President Trump on Thursday ramped up his threats of hitting North Korea with “fire and fury.” In a letter delivered to the State Department Thursday, 62 House Democrats called on Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to de-escalate tensions, calling Trump’s words “belligerent” and “reckless.” Elsewhere, a group of Korean-American elected officials sent President Trump a letter calling for diplomacy and dialogue. Among those signing the letter was Philadelphia City Councilmember Helen Gym, who wrote, “As we observe the 72nd anniversary of the atomic bombs that destroyed Hiroshima and Nagasaki, we remember that nuclear warfare is unacceptable and we must remember the lessons of history which is ‘never again.’”
