Gorka denies dismissing Tillerson's role on North Korea

Gorka denies dismissing Tillerson's role on North Korea

This morning, and let me just back up here for our viewers who might not know, I believe this morning you gave an interview to BBC Radio during which you said that "it was nonsensical for Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to discuss military matters" and that he was "out of line". "It is the job of Secretary Mattis, the secretary of defence, to talk about the military options, and he has done so unequivocally".

Gordon Humphrey (N.H.), a longtime critic of President Trump, said on Wednesday the commander in chief is "sick of mind" and urged New Hampshire's lawmakers to support calls to remove him from office.

North Korea responded by claiming it is preparing a plan to fire missiles at the United States territory of Guam in the western Pacific. Today he said woe betide anyone who militarily challenges the United States, and that is his portfolio, that is his mandate.

Obviously, the Secretary's comment didn't go down well with Gorka who insisted it was beyond Tillerson's jurisdiction.

Gorka directly attacked Tillerson's much more reserved remarks, seeming to double down on Trump's more harsh rhetoric from earlier in the week. "Secretary Tillerson is the chief diplomat of the United States, and it is not his portfolio to handle those issues".

The hacking claims prompted Kenya's Election Commission to react and counter the allegations, assuring Kenyans that "all is well". His deputy Kalonzo Muyoka repeated the call for calm but said the opposition might call for unspecified "action" at a later date.

GORKA: If you threaten a nation, then what should you expect - a stiffly worded letter that would be sent by courier?

"Is that what the United Kingdom would do if a nation threatened a nuclear-tipped missile launch against any of the UK's territories?" The Obama administration did not do so.

CNN host Fareed Zakaria has denounced US President Donald Trump's apocalyptic threats to North Korea, calling his war rhetoric "the art of the bluff".

"He's a Cabinet secretary", Nauert said, noting she had not yet heard or read Gorka's remarks herself.

"Should Tillerson be listened to?" a reporter asked. US Vice President Mike Pence has said no such talks are being considered. They're only doing it - but I will tell you, we have tens of millions of people in this country that are so happy with what I'm saying - because they're saying, finally we have a President that's sticking up for our nation and, frankly, sticking up for our friends and our allies.
