“Donald Trump is unfit for office. Needs to be removed,” King tweeted Friday after Trump threatened military action against North Korea.

Trump is facing criticism for his threat earlier this week of "fire and fury" if North Korea threatens the U.S.

North Korea shrugged off Trump’s warning, saying they have already planned to attack waters near the U.S. base in Guam this month.

King has been harshly critical of Trump in the past, saying his control of the U.S. nuclear arsenal is “worse than any horror story I ever wrote” and mocking his claims that former President Barack ObamaBarack Hussein ObamaThe US is ripe for climate-friendly diets Obama says he once broke a classmate's nose for calling him a racial slur Tanden's path to confirmation looks increasingly untenable MORE wiretapped him with a short story.
