Trump admin speaking in one voice on N Korea threat: State Dept

| | Washington

The Trump administration is speaking in one voice on the threat posed by North Korea, a State Department official has said, dismissing reports that there was dissent within the Government over the issue.

“Some of you may disagree with this, but the US is on the same page. Whether it’s the White House, the State Department, the Department of Defence, we are speaking with one voice. And the world is, in fact, speaking with one voice, and we saw that as it came out of the UN Security Council with the resolution that passed less than a week ago,” State Department Spokesperson Heather Nauert said.

Tensions have escalated with North Korea over the last several days. On Tuesday, US President Donald Trump’s regime reacted to reports that North Korea had produced a compact nuclear warhead by warning the country that it would face consequences if it threatened the US.
