Trump warns North Korea following reports of nuclear capability
Trump warns North Korea, says threats 'will be met with fire and fury'After it was reported earlier today (Tuesday) that North Korea has succeeded in building mini-nuclear warheads to load onto their ICBMs, US President Donald Trump issued a heavy ultimatum to North Korea, warning that any threats would be met with an unprecedented response.
A short while after The Washington Post’s initial report today (Tuesday) that North Korea has successfully built miniaturized nuclear warheads for its ICBMs, US President Donald Trump issued a severe warning against the isolated country.
"North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States. They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen,” warned Trump. “He has been very threatening… and as I said they will be met with fire, fury and frankly power, the likes of which this world has never seen before."
The Washington Post’s report comes less than a day after North Korea threatened to take "justified actions" in response to a series of sanctions approved by the United Nations Security Council last weekend.
According to the report, the assessment was completed last month following an additional intelligence analysis indicating a sharp increase in the amount of bombs found in the communist state’s arsenal. While the US estimated last month that North Korea's dictator Kim Jong-un possessed up to 60 nuclear warheads, independent experts estimate that the amount is much smaller. Yet, whether the regime has yet conducted successful tests of these new warheads, is still unknown.
The findings of this report are expected to deepen the West’s concerns about North Korea’s developing military threat, appears to be advancing at a much higher rate than experts expected. US officials stated that Pyongyang was even exceeding expectations in its development of ICBM launch capabilities.
