CNN's Zakaria: Trump North Korea Threats 'The Art of the Bluff'

He added that the North's current actions and "what they've been getting away with" can not be further allowed.

However, the tweet did not seem to have gone down well with several Twitter users, including actor Kal Penn, who quoted the tweet asking if Trump's Twitter account could be suspended for "threatening violence" against North Korea?

It also called for the usa president to acknowledge the power of the constitution and seek its approval before launching war. Trump's predecessors have declared military attacks on other nations without congressional permission.

Rep. David Cicilline (D-R.I.), a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, made the call in a letter to Speaker Paul Ryan as tensions escalated over North Korea's nuclear and missile threats.

"As long as the United States refuses to sign a peace treaty and refuses to end its war games on the North Korean border, what is North Korea to do other than continually trying to build up their military because they fear the USA will attack them at some point", he said, adding that the fears are not groundless, as the U.S. is known for a long history of military interference.

"It is crucial for Seoul to be more vocal about its current stance in the tug-of-war between Washington and Pyongyang ..." With the investment in infrastructure the North Korean people's lives would be improved and a dialogue would be opened.

The new YouGov poll suggests that 68% of Americans see North Korea as an enemy.

Thursday on "CNN Tonight", network host Fareed Zakaria said President Donald Trump's "fire and fury" rhetoric on North Korea was the "the art of the bluff". "Well, he's acting more responsible than this guy".
