Experts on the Korean issue said that it is not fitting for the president to put the dangerous and serious issue like a nuclear war on twitter and it is an irresponsible behavior leading the situation to the brink of a war. The U.S. shouldn’t doubt even a bit the DPRK’s nuclear deterrent bolstered to settle the showdown with the U.S. but behave with prudence.
