Earlier this week North Korea publicly showcased the alarming escalation of its nuclear capabilities. Kim Jong Un's regime successfully tested an Inter-Continental Ballistic Missile Tuesday, despite frequent condemnations from world leaders.

He urges President Trump to "respond to North Korea's missile test with a coherent strategy rather than just Twitter bluster."
