Donald Trump further escalates feud with North Korea and Kim Jong-un with statement

He made the announcement on Twitter.



“Locked and loaded.”

United States President Donald Trump has further escalated his feud with North Korea and Kim Jong-un on Friday morning stating that the US is ready for action if the nation should “act unwisely”.

In a tweet, President Trump said that:

“Military solutions are now fully in place, locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely. Hopefully Kim Jong Un will find another path!”

According to CNN however, an official spokesperson for The White House said that Trump’s comments are just military plans for any possible crisis that the US could face in the world.

This follows Trump’s earlier statement on Wednesday night where he claimed that North Korea would face “fire and fury” if they did not leave the United States of America alone.

He then followed this claim up by saying that maybe “fire and fury” wasn’t enough of an action to take and that administration had not done enough to take on North Korea in the past.

Relations between North Korea and the United States have begun to unsettle even further in recent weeks and it is feared that the situation might escalate even more so.

On Thursday, North Korea outlined plans for imminent missiles launch towards Guam which is home to a major military hub and home to US bombers.
