A day after North Korea threatened to "gain revenge" on the USA over newly approved sanctions from the United Nations, President Donald Trump touched on the situation. "We must be tough & decisive!" "Both Barack Obama and George W. Bush were viewed as successful at this stage of their presidency by most Americans (56% for Bush, 51% for Obama)".

When respondents who identified as Republicans were asked what they think about Trump's performance, 59 percent said they "strongly approve" of it - a low number compared to the vast majority of recent polls.

The UN unanimously approved the sanctions which include a ban on coal and other exports worth over $1 billion, according to the AP.

The regime in Pyongyang has threatened "thousands-fold" revenge on the United States for new sanctions it has sponsored in response to its ongoing nuclear programme.

"OPIOID CRISIS: Worse than we thought, with a new study showing overdose deaths were under reported", the tweet said.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has said that the U.S. might be willing to negotiate with Pyongyang if the government stops test-firing missiles.

"I will be holding a major briefing on the Opioid crisis, a major problem for our country, today at 3:00 P.M.in Bedminster, N.J.", Trump wrote.
