Rex Tillerson: Americans Should Sleep Well at Night

The Secretary of State made a surprise visit to Guam after North Korea threatened the U.S. territory.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson reassured Americans, telling them they “should sleep well at night” in a press conference on his plane on Wednesday.

“I think Americans should sleep well at night, have no concerns about this particular rhetoric of the last few days,” Tillerson said.

The secretary of state said that President Trump is “reaffirming” U.S. commitment to defending itself and its allies.

Tillerson made the comments on his way to the U.S. territory of Guam, visiting the island after North Korea threatened missile strikes on U.S. military installations there.
