There's no "imminent" threat of a nuclear war between the USA and North Korea, according to CIA Director Mike Pompeo, who explained that Donald Trump's threats against Pyongyang describe only a possible response for "certain actions".
"I've heard folks talking about that we're on the cusp of a nuclear war", Pompeo said on Fox News Sunday. "The President has enabled the intelligence community and the Department of Defence, to be sure, that we're protecting America from this threat", Pompeo said.
