MSNBC chief foreign affairs correspondent Andrea Mitchell did not seem pleased with President Donald Trump’s response to reports that North Korea has nuclear warheads small enough to fit on to an intercontinental ballistic missile. Trump told the press, “They will be met with fire and fury the like the world has never seen.”

Mitchell said on “The Morning Joe” that the president’s comments seemed calculated. She thought the “language and the tone was pretty startling.” She also said during a press conference that she is more used to hearing such rhetoric from the likes of North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, “not from presidents of the United States.”

Chris Salcedo begged to differ on today’s “Chris Salcedo Show,” citing former president Harry Truman’s speech before the bombing of Hiroshima 72 years ago. Truman said the of the Japanese, “They may expect a rain of ruin from the air, the like of which has never been seen on this earth.”
