Donald Trump warns North Korea, says 'fire and fury' not tough enough

The president told reporters that perhaps his "fire and fury", comment wasn't rhetoric-y enough, adding that the leaders of North Korea should "get their act together" or it will be in trouble "like few nations have ever been".

"If North Korea does anything in terms of even thinking about attack of anybody that we love or we represent or our allies or us, they can be very, very nervous and they should be very nervous", Trump said.

"Make sure you understand that this is not the final decision", Robert Carlin, the former chief of the Northeast Asia Division at the State Department's Bureau of Intelligence and Research, told reporters on a call organized by 38 North, a website that brings together experts on North Korea.

Trump said strongman Kim Jong Un should be "very, very nervous" if he does anything to the United States - though he declined to say whether the USA was considering a pre-emptive strike.

On some emotional level, one might be able to see why Donald Trump threatened to unleash "fire and fury" against North Korea if it endangered the United States.

Mattis said in a statement that Trump was informed of the growing threat that North Korea poses in December before he took office, and ordered the Pentagon to emphasize ballistic missile defense and nuclear weapons that pose a deterrent to other countries using them.

Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said Thursday that war with North Korea would be "catastrophic", casting a dire tone after President Trump unleashed a string of warnings to the rogue nation. "He's not getting away with it".

But just hours after Trump warned Pyongyang against making further threats, the North Korean military issued a statement indicating the country is "carefully examining" a plan to strike Guam, a US territory in the Pacific.

BBCI: China transport: Deadly coach crash in road tunnel
At least 36 people were killed and 13 injured after a coach crashed in a road tunnel in northern China, state media reported. The bus was travelling to Luoyang city in Henan province from Chengdu city, the capital of Sichuan province in he southwest.

And in case we weren't clear about the president's thoughts on North Korea, Trump chose to yell at the nation just how he (probably) used to yell at Ivanka and Eric and Donny Junior and also Tiffany and maybe Barron.

And one market-the color of which President Trump is fond of-has gained significantly since the original "fire and fury" barb: Gold. With nearly 1.2 million people now serving in the military, North Korea also has the world's fourth largest army.

Trump also responded to a USA Today report that said he has had contact with Mueller since the investigation started, signalling his cooperation, but that "no notes" were being passed.

"If negotiations fail, he is willing to abandon "strategic patience" and use pre-emption", Graham said of Trump during an interview with radio host Hugh Hewitt.

The missiles would fly over Japan and land in the waters off the USA territory of Guam if dictator Kim Jong Un gave approval.

Pyongyang's KCNA state news agency reported Wednesday that plans were being drawn up for missile strikes against Guam that could be put into action at "any moment" after Kim gave the order.

North Korea has laid out plans as to how it would launch a missile strike on the US territory of Guam, and the tension with Washington has spooked markets.

That is about the stupidest and most risky statement I have ever heard an American president make.

Gorka: North Korea Isn't Rex Tillerson's Business
That is his mandate. "I said for reporters to force our chief diplomat, the wonderful Rex Tillerson , to give details of military options is nonsensical ", Gorka said.

The prime minister says he discussed the threat with U.S. Vice President Mike Pence overnight.

He said the United States will "always consider negotiations" with North Korea.

"I think that everyone has clearly heard what Tillerson's forceful comments have been and continue to be on the issue of DPRK and on other countries as well", Nauert said in a press briefing Thursday.

In August 1998, the second stage of a Taepodong-1 long-range ballistic missile fired by North Korea passed over Japan and fell into waters off the Sanriku coast along the Pacific Ocean.

He added that the United States "of course" would always consider negotiations with North Korea, despite the fact that they have failed for the past 25 years.

The president said he believed he was "doing a lot of people a favor by coming out and just saying it", with reference to his proposed rule and revealed that "the military was working on it".

Diplomacy may still get Pyongyang to the table, but the immediate USA goal has to shift from denuclearization to avoiding the threat of all-out nuclear war.

In an early morning tweet, the president boasted about his country's nuclear arsenal.
