The United States’ President Donald Trump is using hostile policy against North Korea that could ignite the flame of a nuclear war, says an author.

“The talk coming from Washington, from Trump [in particular], is extremely hostile and a risk of confrontation on the Korean Peninsula is very grave,” Stephen Lendman told Press TV on Tuesday.

“Something could happen by accident or design and if something happens it could develop to a nuclear war, which would be an absolute disaster,” the author and journalist said.

President Trump has issued a warning to Pyongyang as he vowed his Japanese counterpart Shinzo Abe that the US is ready to defend and respond to any threat.
