A country that is already on edge about the cavalier way that President Donald Trump has respond to threats of thermonuclear war with North Korea's Kim Jong-un was pushed one step closer to that edge after Trump left the door open for war while leaving church Sunday morning.
Responding to a reporter who shouted, "Will you attack North Korea?" the president waved, half-grinned and replied: "We'll see."
As you might imagine, people who value their lives and the lives of others were not amused.
