Trump Threatens North Korea with “Fire and Fury”

President Donald Trump vowed to respond to North Korea with “fire and fury” if the rogue nation continues to threaten the United States. Speaking to reporters at the Trump National Golf Course in Bedminster, New Jersey on Tuesday, Trump said “North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States.” If Pyongyang continues to threaten nuclear action, the president said, “they will be met with fire, fury, and frankly, power the likes of which this world has never seen before.”

In response, the North Korean government matched Trump’s rhetoric, threatening an attack of “enveloping fire” on the U.S. island territory of Guam, which houses thousands of U.S. forward deployed troops.
