Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists editor: Trump N. Korea tweets are existential threat to humanity

The editor in chief of the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists said he believes there is "a danger" to President Trump's tweets on North Korea.

"They increase the probability that North Korea will misinterpret normal military exercises as an attack and respond with force. This could result in a back-and-forth series of military actions that might actually, really lead to worldwide thermonuclear war and the end of the human experiment," John Mecklin said, according to Poynter.

"This is a real possibility. This is why President Trump's tweets about North Korea are, in my opinion, an existential threat to humanity."

1. Creating an 'existential threat to humanity' has to violate the Twitter TOS, right?
