Tillerson Responds to North Korea’s Latest Threat Against US

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson responded Friday to the latest threat made by North Korea against the U.S., saying all options are being considered as the Trump administration ponders how to deal with the regime.

Good Morning America host David Muir asked Tillerson what the United States would do if North Korea detonated a Hydrogen bomb in the Pacific, as the North Korean foreign minister claimed Thursday was a possibility.

“We will continue our efforts in the diplomatic arena, but all our military options, as the president has said, is on the table,” Tillerson said.

He revealed that in the case of an H-bomb detonation, the National Security Council would assemble to advise President Donald Trump, who would then decide what to do.

“Once we can assess the nature of this threat, the president will make a decision regarding the appropriate actions,” Tillerson said.

Muir referenced a Friday tweet from Trump, in which he said Kim “will be tested like never before.”

Muir also asked about Trump’s nicknames for Kim, including “madman” and “Rocket Man.”

“Is this kind of escalating rhetoric – does it work?” Muir said.

“The president obviously takes the responsibility of the security of the American people very seriously and it is his first and foremost responsibility but we’re not in this alone,” Tillerson responded.

Tillerson said the State Department has made diplomatic connections with North Korea’s most important economic supporters, and that the strongest economic sanctions “ever to have been assembled” against Kim Jong Un are now in effect.

Tillerson also referenced China and Russia, who he said are engaged with the North Korean threat.

Muir quickly asked Tillerson about Facebook’s admission to having sold pro-Trump ads to Russian agents during the 2016 election.

“How much does this concern you?” Muir said.

Tillerson replied that social media outlets should “think carefully about their responsibilities in this regard,” both in terms of election interference and the spread of terrorism

Finally, Tillerson dispelled rumors he may soon be replaced by U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, saying, “I think we have a secretary of state currently and I think he’s planning to hang around.”
