Trump tweeted: “Military solutions are now fully in place, locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely. “
North Korea has announced a detailed plan to launch a salvo of ballistic missiles toward the US Pacific territory of Guam, a major military hub and home to US bombers. If carried out, it would be its most provocative missile launch to date.
The US president’s Twitter missive ratcheted up his already bellicose rhetoric with Kim over North Korea’s weapons program, as Beijing appealed to the two leaders to dampen their fiery exchange.
A day prior Trump had hardened his warning that Pyongyang would face “fire and fury” if it kept threatening the United States, saying maybe his tough talk “wasn’t tough enough.”
Trump also warned North Korea it should be “very, very nervous” of the consequences if it even thinks of attacking US soil, after Pyongyang said it was readying plans to launch missiles towards the Pacific territory of Guam.
