The CIA and other key USA intelligence agencies agree with the Defense Intelligence Agency's previously reported assessment that North Korea is now able to miniaturize a nuclear weapon so it can be placed atop a ballistic missile, us officials told NBC News.

Numerous details are secret but if a USA president were ever to order a nuclear strike, we know this: the order would be transmitted to the crew who would fire the missiles in a message 150 characters long - about the same as a tweet. "It is now far stronger and more powerful than ever before", Trump said in the first of his two tweets.

This process will take years. He's failed to get any meaningful legislation, including health care reform, through a Congress controlled by his own party.

President Trump's approval rating has rebounded after a week of rising tensions with North Korea, according to a Rasmussen poll released Friday afternoon. Still, given our proximity in Arlington to places like the White House, the U.S. Capitol, and the Pentagon, how anxious are you - in the back of your mind - about nuclear warfare given the latest escalation in rhetoric?

Will you read Hillary Clinton's tell-all book?

Here's a hint: Nobody believes that.

"What the president is doing is sending a strong message to North Korea in language that Kim Jong Un would understand, because he doesn't seem to understand diplomatic language", Tillerson said.

Still basking in circulating threats from both Pyeongyang and Washington and despite doubtful responses from both analysts and lawmakers, President Trump has once again boasted of the United States nuclear prowess.

The reality, of course, is that he's done nothing of the kind. It said the review should ensure America's nuclear deterrent is robust, ready and tailored to address 21st century threats.

European diplomats also said that they think Trump's foreign policy doctrine is driven primarily "an obsession" with undoing former President Barack Obama's initiatives.

The plan, expected to cost $400 billion through 2024, would upgrade nuclear weapon production facilities, refurbish warheads and build new submarines, bombers and ground-based missiles. You know, triad stuff.

"I think people react to the news a lot more strongly now because it's hard to escape", he said, speaking from Los Angeles.

The really weird thing about Mr. Trump's ridiculous claim is that it was wholly unnecessary.

The arsenal isn't just smaller in terms of numbers of nuclear warheads. He added that "hopefully" the U.S. might not need to use its nuclear weapons.

After this week's sabre-rattling over North Korea the launch procedures are the object of fresh scrutiny.
