In a single tweet, Donald Trump made it clear that diplomacy is not something he is interested in even trying.
Earlier this week, Trump threatened to rain “fire and fury” down upon North Korea if they get aggressive towards us and our allies. Trump then proceeded to brag about the power of America’s nuclear arsenal and threatened to use it.
Understandably, Americans are freaking out because Trump looks determined to start a nuclear apocalypse in order to act tough on the world stage.
And he did it again on Friday morning with a tweet that proves diplomatic solutions are not even being pursued. Instead, Trump thinks this is an action movie and he’s the star.
Military solutions are now fully in place,locked and loaded,should North Korea act unwisely. Hopefully Kim Jong Un will find another path!

If Trump attacks North Korea, it would threaten our South Korean ally. China could also get involved because any military “solution” Trump takes would be close to their territory. Such events could lead to retaliation against the United States in the form of nuclear strikes.
Trump’s boast about being “locked and loaded” drew a sharp rebuke from sane Americans who recognize that real lives are at stake and that this is not a movie or a video game.
Millions of lives are a bargaining chip for the world’s unluckiest gambler. What could possibly go wrong?

I feel like this is absolutely something you shouldn’t be tweeting out.

Your use of bad movie tough guy language actually doesn’t make you sound tougher–and doesn’t help the U.S. in any way.

Nuclear wars happen when two unstable leaders with no compassion for their own people settle their scores with fire and fury.

So you’re putting millions at risk to prove you’re a tough guy? You’re a draft dodging, pompous, narcissistic, insecure little man…

Literally the future of the planet rests in the hands of a man who in mentally instable and egotistically challenged.

The only hope we have is that the nuclear codes require correct grammar and punctuation.

As a Vet I beg you not to take us to war. You have never worn the uniform so you do not know what sacrifice it requires. Please stop

It’s seriously time to invoke the 25th Amendment and remove Trump from office. He is mentally unfit to be president and will kill us all if we continue to do nothing.
