Donald Trump gave North Korea an ultimatum, warning that the United States military's military systems are "loaded and ready for action" if the regime in Pyongyang continues to "foolishly" launch threats, reports The Telegraph.
In a tweet, Trump said, "Military solutions are now fully in place, locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely".
The president said that the USA military is ready in a tweet and said he hopes North Korea's leader, Kim Jong Un, "will find another path".
North Korea said it has drawn up plans to launch four missiles near the small island of Guam, a us territory and military hub. Pacific territory of Guam. On Thursday, he said Beijing "can" and "will" do a lot more to keep North Korea in check. Beijing has expressed frustration with both Pyongyang's repeated nuclear and missile tests and with behavior from South Korea and the USA, such as military drills, that it sees as increasing tensions. North Korea added that Trump's statement was "nonsense" and called him "bereft of reason". He did not comment on whether the U.S.is considering a pre-emptive strike on North Korea.
"He has been very threatening, beyond a normal statement", Trump said of Kim on Tuesday, in comments that were reportedly off the cuff.
Trump also predict that the newest sanctions against North Korea, passed by the UN Security Council over the weekend, will likely be "not as effective" as intended. Trump then told reporters on Thursday that his previous threats may not have been "tough enough". If the missiles are taken down, the United States will have achieved a crushing propaganda victory against North Korea.
"North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States".
