Donald Trump is as careless as they come. On Tuesday he responded to North Korea by saying “they will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen,” as if inviting confrontation between the two countries.
Republican Senator John McCain, one of Trump biggest Republican critics, took issue with Trump’s comments on North Korea.
“I take exception to the president’s comments because you got to be sure that you can do what you say you’re going to do,” Sen. McCain explained. “In other words, the old walk softly but carry a big stick, Teddy Roosevelt’s saying, which I think is something that should’ve applied because all it’s going to do is bring us closer to confrontation.”
“I think this is very, very, very serious,” McCain added.
