On Tuesday, Donald Trump may have warned North Korea about being careful with its threats, but the republic is not ready to listen.
It seems that they have even kicked their plans up a notch, regarding the planned air strikes.
Here is what the President stated loud and clear regarding the situation:
“North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States. They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen.”
“He has been very threatening, beyond a normal state,” the president added, talking of Kim Jong Un, “and as I said, they will be met with fire, fury, and frankly power, the likes of which this world has never seen before. Thank you.”
After many years of failure,countries are coming together to finally address the dangers posed by North Korea. We must be tough & decisive!

North Korea’s Army branch also released a statement, saying they were still evaluating their “military options to form attack positions” regarding the U.S. territory and wanted to “send a stern warning” to the country.
Another source noted that certain measures might be taken if America acts in a manner of provocation.
North Korea already tested two missiles that could be used to strike against America. Trump reached out to China, demanding of them to act responsibly and take suitable sanctions to handle the problem.
The conflict surely exists and Trump made sure to make that clear, but violence is not the way to solve it. Regardless, if North Korea decides to act aggressively, America will have no other option but to respond in the same manner.
