Donald Trump and North Korea appear to be in the middle of a nuclear stand-off, with the United States president threatening "fire and fury like the world has never seen".

We all know that President Trump doesn't think very highly of most mainstream polls in America.

"Alarming thing to lie about".

The most generous assessment of the claim is that President Trump has initiated what's known as a "Nuclear Posture Review", which is simply a periodic study of the current state of the arsenal and how it might be appropriately updated to meet current threats. In fact, according to these European diplomats, who interviewed with BuzzFeed on the condition of anonymity, they actually view Donald Trump as most Europeans do, as a complete laughingstock.
