Congressman Bruce Poliquin claims the past three administrations have appeased North Korea and now the north is working quickly to develop a weapons system to deliver a nuclear warhead to the U.S. homeland.

As for the president's "fire and fury" rhetoric, when asked whether Congressman Poliquin agrees that's the right tone, here was his response:

"Well, I don't get involved in this, I get involved in the work for the people that I serve, and I have a tremendous amount of confidence in our military leaders."

Poliquin says it is important to resolve this situation with negotiation and to include countries like China, Japan and South Korea.

He says those neighbors can put a lot of pressure on North Korea to fix this problem.
