Trump threatens "fire and fury" if North Korea escalates threat

Trump threatens

The assessment was made by the Defense Intelligence Agency last month, the paper said, marking another alarming development in the communist country's pursuit of nuclear-tipped ballistic missiles that can reach the USA mainland.

The president issued the warning to Mr. Kim after the Washington Post reported that us intelligence agency believe the rogue regime has made a miniaturized nuclear weapon that can be carried by long-range missiles.

Also on Tuesday US president Donald Trump praised the global coalition coming together to pressure North Korea over its intercontinental ballistic missile launches "after many years of failure".

Donald Trump has told North Korea it will be met with "fire and fury" if it escalates the nuclear threat it poses.

"If they don't, we will wake up one morning and discover North Korea has tested a hydrogen bomb or a three-stage ICBM - and that could hit ALL of the USA homeland". China feels this. I mean when I talk to the Chinese ambassador, when that missile test took off, they they felt it in China.

The sanctions were pushed by the usa in response to the North's test-launches of two intercontinental ballistic missiles in July.

Now, North Korea has to respond. Significantly, the sanctions were supported by China, which accounts for more than 90% of North Korea's external commerce.

Alarm in Washington over North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's pursuit of a nuclear capability has intensified in the past month after the North conducted two tests of intercontinental ballistic missiles for the first time last month. "United Nations Resolution is the single largest economic sanctions package ever on North Korea", Trump wrote Saturday in a Twitter message touting the achievement.

Third, it remains to be seen if all of the signatories will even deliver on their pledge to cut off roughly $1 billion worth of North Korean trade.

Adding to rising tensions and strategic ambiguity is the possibility that Trump has concluded that a military option with Pyongyang may be preferable to an erratic, unpredictable foe casting a nuclear shadow over the United States.

Officials at the agency would not comment Tuesday on the report.
