Trump Reveals His Plans For North Korea

The rhetoric between the United States and North Korea has ratcheted up to an all-time high. While saber-rattling from North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is not a new phenomenon, his latest threats have been incredibly direct. That’s prompted a response from President Donald Trump, and his words were nothing short of chilling.

The latest back and forth stemmed from a new round of sanctions imposed by the United Nations on North Korea. Those sanctions were in response to the endless hostile chatter emanating from the country, and they were aimed at getting the country to fall back in line and to stop escalating the tensions. The sanctions did not have the desired effect. A statement from the country indicates that their collective resolve has been strengthened even further and that the use of force is clearly on the table.

"Physical action will be taken mercilessly with the mobilization of all its national strength," a statement from North Korea said.

Trump was asked about those remarks directly, and he pulled no punches in response.

"They will be met with fire and fury and frankly power, the likes of which this world has never seen before," Trump said.

That’s led to even more hostile rhetoric from North Korea, and members of the Trump administration have made it clear that Trump wasn’t just shooting from the hip. His statement was meant to raise eyebrows, and it did just that. The president has followed that statement up with more expressions of strength on social media.

"My first order as President was to renovate and modernize our nuclear arsenal. It is now far stronger and more powerful than ever before," Trump wrote. "Hopefully we will never have to use this power, but there will never be a time that we are not the most powerful nation in the world!"

For what it’s worth, former President Barack Obama policy adviser Ben Rhodes felt the need to chime in to dispel Trump’s boasts.

He noted that "it's literally impossible for Trump to have changed our nuclear arsenal in 6 months," adding that it was an "alarming thing to lie about."

Perfect. Our country is engaged in a hostile war of words with a rogue nation, and you feel the need to add your two cents in to tell the other leader there’s not really all that much to worry about - all so you can defend your old boss. What an outstanding contribution to the conversation!
