As North Korea is in the process of developing explosive nuclear weapons, many Americans are becoming more and more terrified every time President Donald Trump opens his mouth and makes a sly remark towards the nation’s leader. America is so petrified that two-thirds of them say President Donald Trump’s war of words with the isolated leader of North Korea is making the situation worse. Less than 1 in 10 thinks Trump’s comments are making it better, according to a new Associated Press/NORC Center for Public Affairs Research survey.
Sixty-five percent of Americans polled said Trump’s recent comments regarding North Korea and its nuclear weapons program have made relations between the two nations worse. 67 percent of Americans are very or extremely concerned about the threat North Korea’s nuclear weapons program poses to the United States. Four in 10 are concerned about the threat posed to where they live specifically, more so if they live in urban areas.
In addition, 75 percent of Americans also believe comments made by North Korean leaders have made the situation between the two countries worse. Eighty-three percent of Democrats and 70 percent of Republicans agree. Yes, you read that right–70 percent of Republicans.
The AP-NORC poll of 1,150 adults was conducted Sept. 28-Oct. 2 using a sample drawn from NORC’s probability-based AmeriSpeak panel, which is designed to be representative of the U.S. population. The margin of sampling error for all respondents is plus or minus 4.1 percentage points.
Those serving in government and the military face a terrible choice: they can serve Trump or our great nation, but its nearly impossible to do both. Trump has proven repeatedly that he is unfit to serve as president and should be removed from office. Trump presents a serious threat to our country just by simply opening his mouth. Next thing you know, he’ll be challenging Kim Jung-un to an IQ test. When will this nightmare end?
