Trump threatens ‘fire and fury’ on North Korea


auswarUS PRESIDENT Donald Trump has issued an apocalyptic warning of “fire and fury like the world has never seen” after reports North Korea has produced a missile-ready nuke.

US officials reportedly said the Pyongyang regime has successfully produced a miniaturised nuclear warhead that can fit inside its missiles.

If true, the development means the rogue state has crossed a key threshold on the path to becoming a fully-fledged nuclear power. It also means it is potentially capable of packing the weapon of mass destruction inside an intercontinental ballistic missile.

Following the report Mr Trump told a press briefing that North Korea would be met with “fire and fury like the world has never seen” if they made any more threats to the United States.

Speaking while on vacation at his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey, Mr Trump said: “He has been very threatening beyond a normal state. North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States.”

He added: “He has been very threatening. As I said, they will be met with fire, fury and frankly power the likes of which this world has never seen before.”

Officials at the DIA would not comment Tuesday on the report. The Office of the Director of National Intelligence has not commented.
