(The Washington Post)One of the biggest questions about President Trump is how he would respond to a crisis. Thus far, his presidency has been marked by controversies and stubborn politics, yes, but also by a strong economy and no natural disasters, major domestic terrorist attacks or new large-scale foreign conflicts.That may be starting to change.

A new Washington Post report indicates that North Korea is approaching the Trump administration’s red line faster than previously thought.According to The Post’s Joby Warrick, Ellen Nakashima and Anna Fifield, a previously secret Defense Intelligence Agency analysis indicates that Kim Jong Un’s regime has produced a miniaturized nuclear warhead that can fit inside one of the intercontinental ballistic missiles that it has been testing.

Those tests drew a unanimous vote on new sanctions from the United Nations Security Council over the weekend.

(The Washington Post)The big takeaway, as The Post is reporting, is that North Korea’s nuclear capabilities appear to be advancing far more rapidly than previously believed. This is a milestone when it comes to North Korea’s ability to strike distant targets with nuclear weapons.

Although it’s not known yet that Pyongyang can strike the United States with an ICBM, U.S. officials concluded last month that the effort was also proceeding more rapidly than experts had anticipated.Now we find out that those ICBMs could be “nuclear-tipped.” In other words, North Korea may have solved half of the puzzle when it comes to threatening the U.S. mainland with a nuclear weapon — something it has made clear is its goal.
