The German press focused on escalating tensions between North Korea and the U.S., with FAZ calling the situation a “War of words” and Die Welt dubbing it a “Showdown in the West Pacific.” 
North Korea dismissed U.S. President Donald Trump’s rhetoric “nonsense” and announced a detailed plan to launch missiles aimed at the waters off the coast of the U.S. Pacific territory of Guam.

Bild, meanwhile, stayed focused on domestic issues, featuring polling results in which Chancellor Angela Merkel appears to be losing support in a ranking of the country’s most preferred politicians, just weeks before the federal election on September 24. Finance Minister Wolfgang Schäuble tops the list with a 64 percent approval rate, followed by Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel at 63 percent.

Merkel follows in third place with 59 percent, down from 69 percent last month. Social Democratic Party (SDP) leader Martin Schulz trails far behind at 33 percent.
