President Donald Trump says the United States' nuclear arsenal is "far stronger and more powerful than ever before". "Hopefully we will never have to use this power, but there will never be a time that we are not the most powerful nation in the world!".

On Twitter Wednesday, Trump said he had pushed to "renovate and modernize our nuclear arsenal".

The credit really lies with former President Obama and defense hawks in Congress who funded the work, especially during a time when the federal budget is subject to spending limits.

Stock Futures Lower Again as North Korea Tensions Intensify
The S&P hasn't moved more than 0.5 percent in one day since July and has fallen more than 1 percent only twice this year. The S&P 500 dropped 1.4% to 2438.21, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 204.69 points, or 0.9%, to 21,844.01.

He said the president's threat to North Korea was "like pouring gasoline on a fire".

Rubio's defense of the President's comments is at odds with the opinions of some of his colleagues in the Senate - including Republicans - who criticized Trump for the harsh rhetoric. "He has been very threatening beyond a normal state and as I said they will be met with fire and fury and frankly power the likes of which this world has never seen before". "Let's never forget that", Bolton said in the tweet that Trump retweeted.

And the president has done little, if anything, to improve the U.S.'s nuclear arsenal.

And in an interview with BBC radio on Thursday, audio of which was obtained by The Washington Post, Gorka dinged Tillerson when asked about the Secretary of State's attempts to calm things down. Ben Cardin, the Foreign affairs committee's top Democrat, compared Trump's comments to those issued by North Korea itself. Tillerson said Wednesday as he returned from an Asia trip he doesn't believe there is "any imminent threat".

This morning, North Korea said it was "carefully examining" a plan to strike the U.S. territory of Guam with ballistic missiles. Three U.S. officials, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said the United States had not moved additional assets into the region after North Korea's threats against Guam. He says that they should "have no concerns about this particular rhetoric of the last few days".

Amid increasing tensions with North Korea, President Donald Trump has taken to Twitter to highlight comparisons between his leadership and that of former president Barack Obama, including an unscientific, almost week-old poll asserting he is the better president.
