  • Markets don't just go up but knowing the moment when they will suddenly drop is not so easy

And the modernization effort that started under former President Barack Obama hasn't been altered by the Trump administration. "It is now far stronger and more powerful than ever before", he wrote on Twitter. "Hopefully we will never have to use this power, but there will never be a time that we are not the most powerful nation in the world!".

So while Trump may have said before he took office that the US has to "strengthen and expand its nuclear capability", not much has truly happened on that front just yet, no matter what you read on Twitter.

The statement is a direct response to bipartisan criticism of the ultimatum Trump issued to North Korea on Tuesday.

He said the president's threat to North Korea was "like pouring gasoline on a fire". He added that, "The great leaders I've seen don't threaten unless they're ready to act, and I'm not sure President Trump is ready to act".

The president's fiery rhetoric came as tensions mounted between the United States and North Korea.

President Donald Trump is retweeting news coverage about his heated rhetoric against North Korea, even as his secretary of state is downplaying Trump's words.

Newsweek asked Stephen Schwartz, an independent nuclear weapons expert and editor/co-author of the book Atomic Audit, if Trump's tweets Wednesday morning were true.

North Korea, pursuing missile and nuclear weapons programs in defiance of U.N. Security Council resolutions, accuses the Washington of devising a "preventive war" and has said any plans to execute this would be met with an "all-out war, wiping out all the strongholds of enemies, including the USA mainland". Another included a video clip of Trump vowing to respond to North Korean threats with "fire and fury".

Speaking in New Jersey at his golf course, Trump declined to rule out a preemptive strike on North Korea, saying he wouldn't discuss potential military options.

"I think Americans should sleep well at night, have no concerns about this particular rhetoric of the last few days", he told reporters on a flight to Guam, where he was to refuel, according to a transcript released by his department.

Sebastian Gorka, deputy assistant to Trump, interpreted the president's latest tweet as a warning to Pyongyang.
