President Trump isn’t letting North Korea’s dictator Kim Jung Un push around America any longer, and this morning he issued yet another bold threat to the rogue nation.
In recent weeks, tensions on the Korean Peninsula have been increasing as both Lil Kim and President Trump trade strong rhetoric, with neither of them backing down from the threat of war. Just the other day, the President warned N. Korea that if it continues to threaten the U.S., that it will be met with “fire, fury, and power” unlike anything the world has ever seen.
His remarks drew criticism from members of Congress and both sides as well as the liberal press; however, despite their protests the President doubled-down on his comments Thursday, saying that his rhetoric wasn’t “strong enough.”
But if they were upset at his threat to annihilate N. Korea, they’re really going to dislike what he said this morning.
Military solutions are now fully in place,locked and loaded,should North Korea act unwisely. Hopefully Kim Jong Un will find another path!

The threat from Trump comes as North Korea promised to shoot four missiles at the U.S. territory of Guam in August. Guam is the home of numerous strategic assets for the military, and the President has signaled that an attack on the island would be treated like an attack on the U.S. mainland.
Yesterday, Trump told reporters at his Bedminster, New Jersey golf club that if North Korea attacks Guam, it will “be an event the likes of which nobody has ever seen before” in the rogue nation.
He also warned that Lil Kim should be “very, very nervous” about what would come if they even think of attacking “anybody that we love or represent, or our allies or us.”
“It’s not a dare” he said, “it’s a statement.”

While members of Congress and the press continue criticizing the President’s rhetoric, it appears as if he’s not going to be backing down any time soon.
