Trump warns N. Korea

On Tuesday afternoon, after it was reported that North Korea has successfully created nuclear warheads small enough to fit inside its ballistic missiles, President Donald Trump warned that if Kim Jong Un’s government makes more threats towards the United States, they “will be met with fire and fury.”

“North Korea best not make anymore threats to the United States, they will be met with fire and fury, like the world has never seen,” the President said before a briefing on the opioid epidemic at his golf club in New Jersey.

“He has been very threatening, beyond a normal statement. And as I said, they will be met with fire, fury, and frankly, power - the likes of which the world has never seen before.”

This comes less than a week after President Trump signed a bill approving new sanctions against the dictatorial state, as well as Russia and Iran. North Korea responded by pledging to “make the US pay dearly for all the heinous crimes it commits against the state and people of this country,” as reported by its state-run news agency.
