Trump's approval rating rebounds amid North Korea tensions

President Trump tweeted out an unscientific online Twitter poll that showed he was a better president that President Barack Obama

As bellicose rhetoric and tensions step up between Washington and Pyongyang, former president Barack Obama " s political adviser Susan Rice stressed USA can tolerate nuclear-armed North Korea, thus blasting Donald Trump.

With over 35 million followers on the micro-blogging site, Mr Trump is one of the most active politicians on Twitter.

Rasmussen Reports, a poll Trump himself has cited on Twitter, shows 45 percent of likely USA voters approve of his performance.

"That statement had not been made on Twitter but #The President took to the social media website and tweeted that 'military solutions are now fully in place".

Wall Street opens lower as tensions with North Korea escalate

China says willing to pay the price for new North Korea sanctions
Wang also said the new resolution showed China and the global community's united opposition to North Korea's aggression. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley told NBC's Today show on Tuesday.

The main accomplishment of the agreement is that it commits North Korea to never resuming operations of its five-megawatt nuclear reactor - a source of fuel for its nuclear weapons project - and never to finish construction of two larger reactors, rated at 50 and 200 megawatts, which potentially could produce fuel for hundreds of additional weapons. The implications were clear, and while the tweet was in-line with Trump's overall bombast and rhetoric, his use of Twitter to fire a warning shot led actor and former White House Associate Director of Public Engagement Kal Penn to question whether he should still have access to the platform.

"I think that probably at this point President Trump has more credibility", Dershowitz told "Fox & Friends" on Saturday. On the other hand, it is hard to figure out whether Trump's tweets can be considered a violation of the terms of service or not. President Trump tweeted earlier this week.

Rice insisted the Washington can tolerate a nuclear North Korea, 'the same way we tolerated the far greater threat of thousands of Soviet nuclear weapons during the Cold War'. On Friday morning, Trump tweeted that USA forces in the region were "locked and loaded".
