President Donald Trump issued an powerful warning to North Korea on Tuesday, stating they “best not make any more threats against the United States” lest they “be met with fire and fury unlike the world has ever seen,” as outlined by press pool reports.
Trump’s fiery statement comes after a Washington Post report citing a leaked US intelligence memo that notes that North Korea can make nuclear warheads tiny enough to fit on missiles, and that they might have 60 such devices.
“He has been very threatening, beyond a normal statement,” Trump stated of Kim Jong Un, North Korea’s Leader. “As I said they will be met with fire, fury, and frankly power, the likes of which this world has never seen before.”
After the UN Security Council passed a substantial sanctions resolution on North Korea following its test of an intercontinental ballistic missile, North Korean media reacted with a harsh threat, stating they would exact “thousands-fold” revenge on the US.
Trump’s administration has stressed that it does not seek regime change in North Korea, but not every voice seems to be on the same page.
