Donald Trump Faces Crisis on North Korea Amid Sliding Polls

President Donald Trump is facing his greatest foreign policy challenge to date in dealing with a nuclear-potent North Korea. But the test comes at a difficult time politically for the president. Recent polls show that Trump’s standing at home has weakened because of doubts about his leadership and his stalled domestic agenda.

The president dominated the headlines this week with his blunt warning in the midst of more nuclear saber-rattling from North Korea. “They will be met with fire, fury and frankly, power, the likes of which this world has never seen before,” Trump told reporters during an event at his golf club in New Jersey.

Trump’s remarks sparked strong reactions from both sides of the political spectrum. Democrats were generally critical. “The president’s most recent comments were recklessly belligerent,” said House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi in a statement.

Former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Bill Richardson said Trump’s comments were “unfortunate,” but said the president could recover. "I think the president has a chance to rally the nation, to address our country on what the policy is, but most importantly, to calm down,” Richardson told AP television.

Republicans in many cases were more supportive. South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham said Trump’s warning was “probably necessary.” Graham told CBS that he believes Trump is determined not to “contain the threat. He’s going to stop the threat.”
