As many had predicted, Donald Trump's presidency has put the possibility of nuclear war on the minds of the international community. So far, President Trump has brought that reality to the world by instigating conflict using threats against North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. Prior to his incendiary speech at the UN General Assembly last week, President Trump only isolated himself from the majority of the U.S. and the rest of the world when he threatened nuclear war against the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) -- the formal name of North Korea's government -- earlier this year.

Americans in line with Trump against North Korea

Now, his speech has forced the rest of the world to consider the chance that Americans have a more unified stance with the President against North Korea, even if that might not necessarily be the case. During the North Korean foreign minister Ri Yong Ho's speech at the UN on Saturday, he referred to President Trump's unpopularity, even among the American people.

On September 15, a Gallup poll that surveyed 1,022 adults found that 58 percent agreed to military action against Kim Jong-un's regime if the Trump administration were unable to find peaceful means to solve the conflict. The poll, however, said that the results were divided among party lines.

Being that Trump ran as a Republican candidate, the Republican support for military action was in the 80s, Democrats were in the 30s and independents were in the 50s.

Increase in hostile action

But analysts have said that the chances of military action are slim. Recently, Guam was caught in between President Trump and Kim Jong-un: the North Korean regime threatened to attack the territory but then backed off.

Nonetheless, South Korea said that in order for the U.S. to take military action, they would have to get approval from Seoul first.

On a lighter note, American late-night talk show comics Stephen Colbert and Seth Meyers both focused on the insults delivered against President Trump by North Korea. They pretended to take offense saying that a foreign country should leave it to America's comedians to insult the President.

Even though the South Korean leadership had said that they were considering a "decapitation plan" after the DPRK's recent nuclear test, President Moon Jae-in met with Russian President Vladimir Putin this month to discuss a policy that would financially support North Korea despite U.S. and UN sanctions. In a recent exchange between Trump and Kim Jong-un, North Korea's foreign minister threatened to conduct a nuclear test in the Pacific Ocean which many experts doubt would be possible.

But a recent article by the New York Times, "North Korea hits new level of brinksmanship in reacting to Trump," suggests that such a move could force regional nations into a nuclear war. In a show of force, U.S. military bombers and their escorts flew farther into the North of the Korean Peninsula on Saturday.
