US urges Americans to leave North Korea before ban kicks in

  US urges Americans to leave North Korea before ban kicks in The United States is urging Americans in North Korea to get out before a travel ban goes into effect on Sept. 1. The State Department is issuing a new travel warning for North Korea that reflects the Trump administration's new travel ban. That ban was announced last month and was published Wednesday in the Federal Register. That triggers a month-long period before it takes effect.The warning says exceptions to the travel ban need special permission that will only be granted "under very limited circumstances.

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee targeted both Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in a tweet on Thursday.

"@POTUS has dispatched Maxine Waters to NOKO [North Korea] to talk to Lil Kim. After 1/2 hour with her he will drink whatever he gave to his 1/2 brother," Huckabee tweeted.

He appeared to be referring to the poisoning of the North Korean leader's half-brother Kim Jong Nam. South Korea's spy agency said in February it believes Kim Jong Un ordered the killing.

The comments come amid escalating rhetoric between Pyongyang and Washington.

Trump said Tuesday that continued North Korean threats would be met with "fire and fury."

North Korea in turn threatened to strike the U.S. territory of Guam.

Waters is a frequent critic of the administration, and she earlier this week said Trump is the worst president in her lifetime.

"The worst I've ever seen, the worst I've ever experienced, yes I do," she said.
