After Trump shared the Fox News report, about North Korean military activity discovered by US spy satellites, many pointed out the incoherence between his retweet and his criticism of leaks. "It's incredibly unsafe when things go out to the press like that".

The tweets did little to soothe concerns in the United States and beyond that Trump was helping push the standoff with North Korea into unchartered and even more risky territory.
