Just 37% of Americans trust Trump to handle the North Korea standoff responsibly, while 72% trust U.S. military leaders to do so according to a new ABC/WaPo poll. For what it's worth, 8% trust Kim Jong-un.

Two-thirds of Americans are opposed to the idea of a preemptive strike against North Korea, while most support increasing sanctions and most oppose more concessions to get North Korea to the negotiating table.
